Foodtown coming to Bushwick.
Bushwick is getting a new Foodtown Supermarket.
Storeowner Gary Schneiderman and his late father, Harold, have been operating an Associated Food Supermarket at 1291 Broadway location since the early 1970s.
The elder Schneiderman opened his first supermarket in the adjacent Bedford-Stuyvesant section in 1959.
Now the grocers have tapped Ruitenberg Lind Design Group (RLDG) to revamp the property as a Foodtown.
"We have certainly seen many changes in Bushwick over the years and it was time to reinvest in the supermarket to better serve customer needs," said Schneiderman.
"I had learned about Ruitenberg's work through Foodtown and was impressed by their design work at other stores. They have brought wonderful ideas to the table and have been an important part of our new store."
"We are bringing a more modern, industrial, and authentic design that connects with the feel of the neighborhood's history," said RLDG Chief Operations Officer Steve Hudes.
"The look of the new store will resonate with the community and better reflect what they are looking for in a local supermarket. Gary has quite an extensive selection of organic and natural foods, so those will be particularly emphasized."
The new look for the store, which remains open during renovations, will include wood, brick, tile and stainless steel.
Most of the security gates, long a staple of businesses along Broadway, will be eliminated and replaced by more inviting glass. Schneiderman hopes to complete the transition from Associated to Foodtown by the end of September.
