King Kullen Opens at Manhasset Center
After the absence of a supermarket in Manhasset for two years, King Kullen opened a major store at the Manhasset Center, Shelter Rock Road and Northern Boulevard on Friday, Jan. 30. Town of North Hempstead leaders attended the opening, along with local business people, civic leaders and other invited guests. They were greeted by a magnificent floral display of potted flowering plants such as azaleas, cyclamen and tulips massed at the entrance. Also showing off the new store's delicatessen department was a buffet table of hot and cold appetizers. For those who were able to tear themselves away from this warm welcome, there were tours of the store and store directories. The latter will certainly be needed for first-time shoppers because the store is large and the selection almost endless, alphabetically running from "aluminum foil" to "waxes." Valet parking was offered to the guests and valet parking will be a feature of the store's amenities. It will cost $3 and for that the shopper can give her/his car to an attendant, the $3 will be added to the bill when the shopper checks out and the attendant will return with the car. The new store is certainly spectacular and will take more than one visit to enable the shopper to familiarize her/himself with it. From deli department to bakery to meat and seafood and including fresh produce, the shopper is tempted by high quality food in almost endless varieties.
