A store for the community
Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon and Councilmember Lincoln Restler, who participated in the Foodtown of Atlantic Avenue Ribbon Cutting event, expressed that this was not just the opening of a store but the beginning of a new chapter for Boerum Hill residents. The area, originally named after the colonial farm of the Boerum family that once dominated the landscape, has transformed over the years and is now bustling with young families and rich cultural offerings.
Fouad Elayyan said, “We are excited to become an integral part of this community, catering to its residents’ needs and preferences.” Munzer Elayyan discussed how Foodtown will differentiate itself from big box stores in the area, explaining that they are a locally owned and operated family supermarket, priding themselves on quality products and great customer service. The Elayyans envision the supermarket as a focal point for the community, meeting the diverse needs of the residents.
