Sahadi’s Expanding

A neighborhood institution since 1948, Sahadi’s is looking to expand:

CurbedNY: Owner Charles Sahadi says the new addition would add 1,500 square feet to the store. Reports the Brooklyn Eagle, “He added that Sahadi’s is no longer only a Middle Eastern food store, but carries a wide variety of food. It seeks, he says, to offer a more unusual and wider variety than the average food market.” This might be the time to point out that Trader Joe’s sits directly across Atlantic Avenue from the store. Ladies and gentlemen, let the battle of the bulk bins begin.

    When TJs was scheduled to open, people around were worried that it would put Sahadi’s out of business. I had no such worry. I love Trader Joe’s, but Sahadi’s is still a wayyyy better shopping experience. And better tasting nuts! Very happy to hear this news, it simply proves my theory that Sahadi’s is goin’ nowhere!

    First of all, they are Eastern Orthodox Christians. Second of all, even if they were Muslim, no one at that store is an extremist. Maybe only extreme quality food! Lastly even using the words “Islamic extremist” in the same sentence with “Sahadi” is like saying Mister Rodgers was an Islamic extremist. They are the kindest people anywhere, and are an asset to the community. They would even tell you that all of the stores on Atlantic Ave have something to contribute to the community; that’s the type of people thet are. I say expand, expand, expand.
