So many kh-kh-kh-kh-khanges at Key Food

A quick weekend update (has that name been taken?). 

Thank you to everyone who has shared photos and reports in recent days from our home-away-from-home, Key Food. 

As we've been noting, a major aisle reorg is underway here on Avenue A and Fourth Street. The frozen foods section is heading from aisle 1 to 6. The produce area will be revamped and expanded. 

That's just for beginners. EVG correspondent Stacie Joy has been on it... and a report is forthcoming. 

Until then, enjoy these two photos courtesy of Maggie Ruggiero ...
...  and William Klayer...
... and the personal collection of EVG (on loan) ...
... the 400 cases of Skinny Pop are safe...
... to be continued...

Hate to complain, but are all Key Food supermarkets the absolute worst? The one downstairs from where I live, so bad. Shelf prices are not what you pay at checkout, lots of nearly expired products. Overpriced items. What the heck?

I keep telling people: The Key Foods Shuffle is not a dance.

But they just won’t listen and now everyone is waltzing around Key Foods.

Key Food has that old school vibe. They could make it nice but they make too much money at this location to shut it down for a full renovation.

Key Food arugala salad $5.99; spring mix $5.99
Whole Foods (formerly Whole Paycheck): $3.99 each.
I save $8/week x 52 = $416/year.

Nada Moo "ice cream" at WF is great, and it replaced the ice cream deals at
KF since I went completely vegan.

I have lived in our hood since 2010. I can count on one hand how many times I've visited this store. I only patronize Whole Foods and Trader Joes for their broader selection and lower price points not to mention their offerings of fresher produce. And, the aesthetics of both stores are just better in my opinion. Key Foods reminds of being trapped in the 90's. I feel depressed when I had to step inside there. Even the interactions I had with staff weren't great. Just my two cents.

Key Foods is a food desert's idea of a nice supermarket. Haven't been in at least a couple years.

what. a. dump. i wouldn't buy meat there. ever. the meat department smells of rot and perfume. their prices have gone up so much that it's cheaper to walk to whole foods to save money. and their prices are always wrong when you ring them up. i was once told buy a cashier, if it's so bad, why do you come back? well. i've stopped shopping there by about 90%. it's my emergency only store now. not sure why E V G likes them so. but hey. to each their own.

Rot and perfume...that's just the dead vampires, well-known around these parts.
