August 11, 2005 is the last day for the supermarket on Port Washington Boulevard. "It's like a wake around here," said Ed Wallace, store supervisor and operations manager, who has been with the company for almost 25 years. "Customers and staff were crying and hugging. One woman with two children came up to me and said, 'I've known you since I was 5 years old.' Other customers have called from the Hamptons where they are summering." He added, "The Altar Guild from St. Stephen's even brought two beautiful vases of flowers."
