Changes planned for the Fresh N Save supermarket on Myrtle Avenue in Ridgewood will transform the store into more than just a place to stock your kitchen shelves or refrigerator.

The facelift currently going on at Fresh N Save, located at 60-16 Myrtle Ave., will completely change the store from the ground up, giving their customers a whole new experience with many new features which include new sushi and hibachi sections, expanded fresh bakery and meat departments, a fresh fish section, and a sidewalk café.


“This renovation is not a patch-up job like the location underwent eight years ago. This is major reconstruction and major renovation work,” said Amin Siad, the supervising manager of the Fresh N Save. “From the foundation up, this marketplace will be a brand-new structure; even the basement is going to be brand new. The entire floor plan will be different. The new floor plan is going to be more convenient and a lot more beautiful for our customers.”

According to Siad, Fresh N Save will be growing by 5,000 square feet, and the biggest feature will be the sidewalk café, which will allow customers to enjoy some refreshments before or after they visit Fresh N Save.

Inside the store, the most interesting new feature will be the sushi and hibachi sections, where there will be a chef on hand making fresh food.

“In addition to the basics, we will feature a sushi and hibachi section, with an actual chef preparing the fresh food on the premises, not prepacked and delivered,” Siad told QNS. “We will have an expanded fresh bakery and a state-of-the-art kitchen on the premises, as well; we will prepare fresh hot/cold gourmet domestic and international — Middle Eastern, Latin American, Eastern and Western European, Far Asian, and American — foods, salads, pastries, and sandwiches on our freshly baked hour by hour breads.”

There will also be a new entrance to the supermarket on the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Norman Street, giving the store an easier access point.

All renovations are expected to be completed by May.
