I used to live a few short blocks away & would buy the freshest ingredients for Vietnamese & other Asian cooking. Now, it's a car trip but I still go there. Huge fresh blocks of tofu that are in buckets of water. The turn-around time on everything is rapid, so I never worry about things sitting on the shelves too long. There are a lot of common items & extremely "exotic" items for most westerners which keeps the place interesting to me or to anyone else that's adventurous & wants to try something new. It is loud & busy in there. A medium sized market. Amazingly inexpensive. I've never been to Asia, so it reminds me a lot of NYC. Can you tell I'm impressed?
I visited the Cooley st Big y today an it was a pleasure I used the caroline way shopping cart and it made it so much easier to shop with my grandson who otherwise could not make it more than 10 min in the store asked me why we couldn't stay longer. Thank you
This store is a whole lot better than Walmart. This store is cleaner, departments are much neater, friendly workers, they have what I want. I don't get frustrated when I go into this store or when I leave. I dread walking in a walmart. Kmart is 100% better.
