Fine Fare on Clinton Street needed to step up its game after the Pathmark competition closed for good back in December. Modifications are now underway to elevate the overall appearance of the budget supermarket.

For the last few days, the southern third of ground floor real estate has been cordoned off while the produce department receives a massive makeover. This might bode well for shoppers who often contend with a rather suspect selection of (often rotten) fruits and vegetables. Larger refrigerated shelving is now in place, just waiting to be stocked.

Store employees tell us the new and improved produce department should be ready sometime tomorrow.

    Wait why would you need to “step up your game” when your competition is shut down? Unless by “stepping up your game” you mean receiving additional business without needing to do absolutely anything at all to get said business?

  • Party Time!

    I still am in shock that the Pathmark closed. They were a service to the community. We need to bring back pre-Reagan Capitalism (when there were regulations that protected the middle class). This is just ridiculous!
