Customers will find a selection of meats, grocery, produce, dairy, frozen, deli and organic and natural products at this location.

We are happy 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 excited to see the success of this store and the reaction of the of Spanish Harlem community.”
