Wide aisle in the new Save A Lot store
NEWBURGH – The first full-service supermarket in Newburgh in decades
was mobbed with shoppers on opening day Thursday. The Save A Lot store,
on Lake Street, is in a modern building that briefly housed a pharmacy
in recent years.
City Councilwoman Regina Angelo said in her 32 years on the council, she
cannot remember the time when the city had a supermarket.
Mayor Judy Kennedy said the store should do well with all of the apartments
in the immediate area.
Store officials were equally as thrilled with the welcome saying they
felt they had the perfect location to service city residents.
Customers entering the store are greeted by a large aisle of fresh fruits
and produce. Several aisles of packaged groceries line shelves with a
large frozen food section the entire depth of the store on the far side
of the building.
