Allegiance Retail Services (ARS), a retailer-owned grocery co-op, held a grand opening Dec. 9 for a new Foodtown at 457 Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn, New York.
Located in the Boerum Hill neighborhood, the 4,500-square-foot store is owned and operated by the Elayyan family, who have nine supermarkets, seven of which are in Brooklyn.
“We are excited to become an integral part of this community, catering to its residents’ needs and preferences,” Fouad Elayyan said.
As a locally-owned and -operated family supermarket, Munzer Elayyan said the Foodtown will differentiate itself from big box stores in the area. The Elayyans envision it becoming a focal point of the community, meeting the diverse needs of residents.
Organic and natural foods will be spotlighted throughout the store. In addition to fresh meat and seafood, customers can expect a vibrant produce section, charcuterie display case with a variety of cheeses, freshly baked goods and a grab-and-go case.
“We look forward to the Elayyan family’s success in bringing the Foodtown banner to Boerum Hill,” said Joseph Fantozzi, COO and president of Allegiance Retail Services.
“They are the epitome of the newer generation of grocers, meeting shoppers where they are at and delivering quality products at price points that meet family’s budgets.”
