Fairway Market Opens In Nanuet, Second Day


Fairway Nanuet
Avoiding the magic influx of patrons at the new Fairway store in Nanuet, www.ParamusPost.com  elected to visit on the second day of their grand opening. Even though it was the second day, the store was packed with shoppers eager to see what Fairway Market  had to offer Nanuet. Shop they did!  Parking was less of a problem on the second day of the opening of The Shops At Nanuet located right off Route 59 and convenient to the New York Thruway, the Palisades Parkway, the Tappan Zee Bridge and the New Jersey Garden State Parkway.

After locating the store on a directory with a map handed out by  the shopping  mall, it was a short walk over to Fairway. Now one of the advantages of shopping at Fairway is that most of their stores follow a set pattern that makes each new store familiar to any Fairway Market visitor/foodie. Of course this store is a tad different from the one in Paramus and also the one in Woodland Park, a tad different for the better. A much larger place, this store had more items on display in their typical shopper friendly manner.

It was like old home week for this seasoned Fairway patron. It took a little bit of questioning, but I learned that Ed Burke was the manager. Ed was a store manager at Paramus and opened Woodland Park. He has now moved to Nanuet. In passing by the Smoke Fish Department, lo and behold, there was Terry, the master artiste at slicing Fairway's own Smoked Salmon aka lox. Obligingly, he posed for a picture holding up one of their prize sections of lox. Another old friend is Benny Lanfranco, Buyer and Master Brewer of coffee beans and knowledgeable in that as well as the enlarged tea section.

Moving along, I went over to Customer Service where my wonderful friend Nancy Gallin was running around satisfying customers. She took a few minutes out to give me a hug and a peck on the cheek and we discussed Fairway and how it has grown from their first venture into Paramus, NJ. following their goal of a new store every six months. She recommended the tiramisu gelato at the food court. When we went there for lunch, we could not locate it.

The choices at the food court were broad ranging from vegetables to fish, chicken, meat . pastas and desserts. as well as a nicely stocked soup area. After choosing, there was a little confusion because we could not immediately locate a cashier. We could have just sat down at a table and had lunch on the Glickberg  family. Howie Glickberg has been too nice to let that happen, nor would our conscience let it occur. With eyes bigger than the stomach, we never finished the dessert pan and took that home along with many other items from Fairway Market.
