Food Bazaar finally opened its massive new supermarket—located on the borders of Long Island City, Astoria and Woodside—yesterday.
The new 42-02 Northern Boulevard supermarket takes over the space that was once a Pathmark Supermarket.
The store features an extensive produce section, bakery, deli, and seafood section–which includes live lobster. The market also has several aisles stocked with foreign foods.
The supermarket is expected to bring back over 200 jobs to the area.
Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer said in a statement that the supermarket will provide the “residents of Long Island City, Astoria, Woodside and Sunnyside with a convenient location to purchase their groceries locally.”
The supermarket will be open 24 hours a day– and will have street-level and underground parking.
The new store will be part of the Food Bazaar chain that operates throughout the Tri-State area. This location will be the sixth to open in Queens.
