TOUR: CTown Supermarkets - Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY

There are two CTown Supermarkets on Nostrand Ave. This, the southern location, is the newer of the two stores, having opened in 2016, and is owned by Samer Abdel Hamid. Amina Abdel Hamid, who is likely Samer's sister, owns the northern location at 1361 Nostrand.
The 3800 square foot store is tiny, but a very important resource. The prices were across the board very low, with lots of fresh products.
No, it's not fancy, but they have everything you could want at very reasonable prices. Check out that produce selection!
Produce and meat line the first aisle, with frozen foods on the back wall and in the last aisle. Dairy finishes out the last aisle. There are only four aisles in total.
Nice floor and shelves. I also appreciate how clean and uncluttered the store is!
Frozen foods and dairy in the last aisle. You can see the conveyor to the basement, where the storage probably is, on the right side.
Aaaaaand... chandeliers on the front end. Because why not?
If you like this store, good! We'll be visiting the older location up north on Nostrand when we circle back north. Right now we're still heading south on Nostrand. This block and the two to the south on Nostrand are kind of crazy with the density of stores, with six (including this one) in those three blocks. Buckle up kids, we'll be seeing it all!
