Yesterday, 9-21-2014, I purchased some “fresh” unfrozen broccoli in plastic wrap from Gristedes South. Today, I went to cook it and it was completely rotten on the inside with white mold.

The label said “Sell by 9-20-2014”, so they sold outdated produce. It was packed on 9-16-2014.

The entire Gristedes South is a mess as they try to renovate yet not lose a dime of money and stay open. This is creating a dangerous environment.

We caution against purchasing any food from Gristedes.

    Do NOT leave what must be Gristides North (at Gareway Plaza) out. It has to be equally disgusting. Or, at least it’s near equal in disgusting. It is and has always been back to Red Apple days — disgusting.

    Gristedes South is so unkept! I just wonder what goes on behind the scenes! (Rodents).

    I don’t know how it can be remodeled without gutting it completely. North is not much better.

    I went to a beautiful Gristedes midtown east. Wouldn’t mind paying their high prices if the place were that inviting! Not to mention how wonderful some healthy competition would be having 2 DIFFERENT stores.
