Grosstedes – This is my first review. before this, i never bothered to register to write any reviews. but anyway, i was reading the village voice about the castimidis, the owner of gristedes, who wants to become mayor. i suddenly thought of the gristedes on 8th ave and 54th street. i always found that store particularly dirty. i'm new to manhattan, so i didnt have much to compare it to. however, the aisles aren't very clean, the produce doesn't look very good, everything about that store just bothers me. a much better supermarket, in terms of cleanliness and is the d'agostino on 53rd and 10th. 10th avenue is just kind of sketchier so i go there less frequently. but it's much nicer. and the westerly is right next to gristedes, it's cheaper, all the products are like healthier and organic, and better for you. gristedes should be called grosstedes!
Editorial Review – Since 1888, when the first gas-lit location opened on 42nd Street, this supermarket empire has served New York State's grocery needs.
Why would you shop here? – Gristedes needs to wake up and realize that finally New Yorkers don't HAVE to shop in a dirty store with surly help who are unpleasant and can't manage to say hello or thank you. WHY would anyone shop here when Whole Foods is three blocks away, is huge, new, clean, well-stocked, and actually has helpful, friendly employees? Wake up Gristedes, your days are numbered.
