About UsOur commitment starts and ends with you, our customers. For a 100 years, we’ve operated our business with a single goal in mind: delivering unmatched selection, quality and value.
Our story starts in 1914 when the Rabinowitz family opened a
corner grocery store in Somerville, MA. Four years later, they introduced the
modern self-service supermarket, and by 1947, our company had grown into a
flourishing chain of 86 supermarkets.
Since then, we’ve continued to grow and innovate, pioneering
the superstore concept and opening over 375 stores throughout New England, New
York and New Jersey.
A Legacy of Diversity
We’re here in your neighborhood, and draw upon your rich
culture to make our stores better. We’ve also made it a point to ensure that
our suppliers are representative of the communities we serve.
