CTown Renovation

I noticed there's some major renovations going on at the Austin Street CTown supermarket....

I guess this market is not going to give up without a big fight. We've had some major improvements in terms of grocery shopping here in the neighborhood in the past year or so, with the Farmer's Market on Sundays offering excellent quality fruits & veggies, and the Duane Reade, Rite Aid and CVS offering expanded grocery sections that are actually pretty darn good for a lot of the staples. So I guess CTown needs to step up its game a bit. Should be interesting to see what this renovation results in. Personally, I've barely done any shopping there - only when Natural doesn't have something I need I walk right next door...

  1. First things first C-Town needs to get rid of the foul odor that hits you in the face the moment you walk through the door. Second item on the checklist should be selling food that is not spoiled or rancid. If they're going to go toe to toe with Natural by trying to expand their Organic selection it won't work. A better plan of attack would be offering consumer staples at a discount to Natural or competing Grocers.
