Look Inside: Fine Fare Supermarkets - Bushwick, Brooklyn, NY
This tiny, 4600 square foot supermarket was a Compare Foods until about 2012. David Corona opened a Fine Fare in the location at that point. It's comprised of a small grocery store that expanded into a neighboring storefront, pictured above. I didn't want to use the main supermarket's storefront as the picture for the post, because, uh...
Let's just say it had seen better days at the time of my visit. The Fine Fare banner placed over the Compare Foods awning in 2012 had reached the end of its life by my 2019 visit. I am pleased to report that the whole awning has been replaced, and the store looks very sharp nowadays. Anyway, the entrance in the neighboring storefront brings you into produce and meat in the 900 square foot expansion, with the rest of the departments in the main grocery store.
For a very, very tiny store, it's looking very good. Updated fixtures and as much decor as you can have in such a small and low-ceiling space.
As is common in urban supermarkets, the shelves are very tall to maximize selection with the least floor space used. While the shelves look great, the floor is beginning to show its age.
That about concludes our look inside this tiny store! It does a nice job of having all the essentials and some more specialty items (organic produce, craft beer, specialty cheeses) in a very small space. It's located at 1305 Myrtle Ave, Brooklyn, NY.
