Before we take a look at these pictures taken on 12/10/17, you can refresh your memory of the store from the original tour back in June, taken when the store was first opened.
Chesapeake Seafood sign from Garwood. This leaning sign is new. And yes, all of the seafood freezer cases are empty...
"inconvenience" right. And at first glance, this seems surprisingly responsible of Bell Farms -- to not sell product that could have been defrosted for a long time. I would expect them to just turn on the freezer cases again and continue business as usual. But is it a coincidence that Superfresh in Edison (also, of course, a Kim store) had a power outage that caused the frozen products to all be removed and restocked as well? Somehow that smells a little fishy to me, and it's not left over seafood in this case. Maybe it's a way to get insurance to pay for products that aren't selling? Or it could be just a real power outage; I was here the day after the first snow of the season. You never know in these old buildings.
UPDATE: Yes, it is a coincidence. There was a power outage in this area due to the snow.
UPDATE: Actually, produce suffered too. As I mentioned...some of the products were not as fresh as they should have been, due to the refrigeration being out.
