Question by Zsa: Grocery stores and Supermarkets in New York City?
Does New York City (including all the burroughs) have grocery stores and supermarkets like in Texas? I’m talking about the HUGE grocery and supermarkets that sell everything! They have a large selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, chicken, beef, frozen veges and stir-fry, cereals, juices (in the cartons), cheese, pasta and sauces, spices and seasonings, frozen desserts, cake mixes, muffin mixes, chips, gallon water, ziplock bags, toilet tissue, paper towels, straws, soaps, personal hygiene products, hair care products, over the counter medicines, pharmacy etc. (Don’t laugh, I know I listed ALOT of stuff, but I’m trying to give a thorough explination so that the answers will be helpful.) When I went to New York I didn’t see stores like this (maybe I didn’t look in the right places. lol) An example of a supermarket in Texas that carries all these items (and a WHOLE lot more) is Albertson’s. Do they have stores like Albertson’s in New York city?

NO! I moved up here from Atlanta and would kill for a Publix. We end up just ordering our groceries online. They have little grocery stores with no selection. For produce, I go to the produce stand, for meat the butcher shop and so on. For toiletries I go to the drug store. It’s kind of a pain but it’s a trade-off for living in the city.
I don’t know why I’ve gotten 5 thumbs down for this one. New York doesn’t have huge grocery stores like they do in Texas.
