List Of Open Supermarkets


Many readers have been asking about open businesses, especially restaurants, supermarkets and pharmacies. Later today we’ll publish a post about the area’s small businesses hit by the storm, but for now we’re asking for your help compiling a list of open supermarket and grocery stores.

Please put in the comments any supermarkets and grocery stores you know of that are open. Please do not post anything else in the comments here, or it will be deleted.

      that CVS store will NOT be open until maybe January. they have been pumping out a lot of water lately. i asked the guys working to clean the damage there if i can just see a peek of the inside and the entire inside is COMPLETELY DESTROYED. The CVS on Kings Highway and Nostrand Avenue is open. Their phone # is 718-677-3871. The B44 Local and Limited buses, along with the B7 and B82 buses stop right on the corner so it is very convenient.

    Key Food on Gerritsen and U is open. Right now everything is in stock….even ice.
    Waldbaims on Ocean and Flatbush are both closed. Duane Reade on Voorhies and Ocean is closed. Pet Co on Y will be opening today…..soon.
    BP gas on Mill Ave has a line 4 blocks long and even with police directing people are getting nasty. Word of advice…..don’t try to jump the line, one man was having his life threatened for it.

    Any word on Stop & Shop?

    • nolastname

      I drove past 1/2 hour ago. The lot was empty. I did not see people with carts.

    • BrooklynBus

      At 1:30 there were only maintenance people cleaning out the store. Through the windows it looked like all the food racks were dismantled so the store could be cleaned. There were cars parked in the lot but they weren’t shoppers.

    • kchian

      I called yesterday and the woman who answered said they hope to be able to open next week.

  • nolastname

    Petco is open. The hot dog guy is at his post. First day back after 6 days off. Go get a hot-dog and support your local vendor.

    • ShadowLock

      ewww……. Vendor Hot dogs….. processed meat full of crap. *gag

      • nolastname

        They are called “Dirty Water Dogs” to you sir.
        “Some” people like them. I heard he has some great knishes, I never tried ’em.

  • toubis

    Walgreens on W and coney is open, if you can get past the line of people waiting for gas at the BP station on crawford.

  • rbc

    Is anything open around trump village (key food, mcdonalds, cvs, walgreens, duane reade)

  • Cherry Hill Market on 86th Street
    2284 86th Street,
    Brooklyn, NY 11214

    They have everything!!

    • nolastname

      Net Cost on E 16 Street had a tractor deliver yesterday. They have everything too, and at less of an expense.

      • General Tso

        I’d be careful with NetCost. Their other location got flooded and from what I understand it won’t be open for a while. So I am assuming that the truck delivery was from the flooded store. They were pretty sneaky about changing their expired labels before… so be careful:)

        • nolastname

          I highly doubt it. A tractor passes down Avenue W a couple times a week. I notice because I wish they would change their route once in awhile. But thanks for the heads up. I plan to watch EverythinG I buy for the next week or 2.

  • Keith

    FEMA’s in Coney Island, National Guard is at 5th and Surf ave. Have they distributed to Sheepshead Bay yet?
