CTown Supermarkets Opens New Location In New Haven


CTown Supermarkets will celebrate the opening of a new location in New Haven, Connecticut, under the collaborative banner, The Meat King by CTown, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. on June 10. 

Located at 664 Grand Ave., the new store offers more than 16,000 square feet of a reimagined grocery and meat experience for New Haven and the surrounding communities. CTown meat

The Meat King by CTown location will be part of the ongoing expansion outside the traditional Metro New York neighborhoods where the brand was first established in 1975. Founded as true “neighborhood supermarkets,” all CTown locations are independently owned and operated, giving each the freedom and flexibility to customize the shopping experience for their local communities.

Meat King by CTown boasts the largest selection of specialty and store-made meat selections in the area to date.

“I am extremely excited and proud to be opening my first CTown store here in New Haven,” said Hernando Cepeda, store owner. “My goal is to provide the community with as much variety as possible, so everyone can buy affordable food to recreate family recipes from all corners of the world. I’m really proud of our specialty meat business and excited for all we have to offer.”   

Customers can expect a wide selection of meats, grocery, produce, dairy, frozen, deli and more at this location. The Meat King By CTown soon will be partnered with Instacart to offer delivery service, making The Meat King by CTown convenient and accessible to a larger perimeter of the New Haven area. 

“We’re excited to collaborate on this new store with Hernando and his team. It’s important that The Meat King team recognized how impactful the CTown brand and program are to the New Haven neighborhood and their business. We are proud to support them on this journey,” said Dennis Wallin, EVP of New Business Development at Alpha 1 Marketing, the in-house marketing agency that supports the CTown brand.” We are confident that The Meat King by CTown store will be very successful. We look forward to the reaction of the New Haven and surrounding communities.”  

Since establishing the banner in 1975, in New York City, CTown Supermarkets has grown throughout the New York Metro and Northeastern United States and has 140-plus locations.
