Fairway is in the process of setting up shop at Post Road Plaza, which is located on Boston Road at Pelham Parkway/Route 70, right by the Hutch. That means we'll have a new grocery store option about as close as you can get to the Bronx without actually being in the Bronx. This is great news for Bronxites with cars, as well as those in the Co-Op City and Pelham Bay areas.
I've never actually shopped in a Fairway supermarket, but I've heard great things about them. Supposedly their selection with hard-to-get specialty items is quite impressive, which unfortunately means their prices aren't super cheap. I'd be willing to pay a little more for quality items if the shopping experience was really pleasant (i.e., wide aisles free of piles of stock boxes, quick and efficient checkout, wide selection of products).
All the I found online said the store is opening in 2009, but I seriously doubt that because we only have 3 weeks left in the year. In any case, we are excited to hear of quality grocery store option opening nearby.
