A Tale of Two Supermarkets
Part II: City Supermarket, Newark, NJ
Continued from last MondayFoodtown of Lake Hiawatha. Foodtown closed some time around 2008, being replaced soon after by a Super Fine Fare supermarket, which in turn converted under the same ownership to City Supermarket along with a sister store in nearby Irvington. The location in Newark is bigger, certainly, than Irvington.
JoshAustin610 on Flickr. The entrance and exit are on the right, where the light post is. You enter closer to the parking lot and walk across the front-end to the grand aisle, which is on the side where "a city of savings" is on the facade. It's kind of a strange layout, but it works OK.
One More Thing...Courtesy of an outdated blog run by the Super Fine Fare, we can get a look at their circular from 2011! Click on the pictures to enlarge or download.
Pretty cool. Some prices haven't changed much in almost seven years.
City is very nice but lacks the neighborhood charm that Extra has. Extra doesn't have the selection that City does, though, but I think Extra's prices are lower. Both use Parade storebrands.
