Liberty to get a new supermarket this summer
3/5/12 - 10:52 am
The Times Herald-Record reports that a new supermarket is coming to site of the former Liberty Great American, shuttered since last summer:
NSA Supermarkets, a Brooklyn-based company, is in the process of buying Great American's North Main Street property. It estimates it will have the property renovated and reopened by the summer.
"We want everything to be fresher," said John Lim, the company's comptroller. "We want to provide a full line of products — everything that the community needs."
Great news for the village of Liberty -- but elsewhere in the region, towns are still desperate for word on when their local supermarkets will open.
Last summer's Irene and Lee floods knocked out supermarkets in several towns. While some, like the Boiceville Supermarket IGA, have since re-opened (with much rejoicing), others, like the Freshtown in Margaretville and the Grand Union in Middleburgh, are still out of commission.
Though the closing of Liberty's Great American on August 31, 2011 coincided uncannily with the Irene floods, it was unrelated to the flooding elsewhere in the Catskills.
