In spectacular fashion, Great Wall (GW) Supermarket opened its latest location Thursday at 59-16 99th St. in Corona.

A row of about 30 dignitaries, including nearby LeFrak City General Manager Gerald Rivera, participated in the ribbon cutting, which included explosive confetti cannons, Chinese drummers and dancing lions and dragons. The new location joins more than a half dozen stores throughout the northeast, including in New York, Boston, Maryland, Virginia and Atlanta.


The first GW Supermarket was established in Elmhurst in 2001, with three now opened in the borough. At more than 30,000 square feet, the new store carries a wide variety of cut-to-order meats and seafood, including geoduck clams and live eels, groceries and a vast selection of fresh produce that would make a farmers market blush, including aloe vera and durian. The popular chain plans to expand into organic foods to offer its customers healthy living choices.

“We focus on fresh produce,” said Operating Manager Edward Wu. “We also have our own brand, so we’re able to offer products of as high a quality as the major brands, but at much lower prices.”

I would really give this place no stars. It gets no stars. This is the worst supermarket known to mankind. They don't know anything about customer service. What they do know, is money. I go there as quick as I can get out. I call them to ask them a simple question about the pricing of a certain sauce, tartar sauce to be exact, which is a simple sauce you put on fish which they sell, and they told me they know nothing about that, but the shit is sitting on their shelves o.O What is the point of putting your phone number out there for people to call you and ask you questions about your business?? I do not understand nor will ever understand how Koreans operate, but I do know this, they know how to make money. Despite the lack of customer service and social skills, they know how to make money, AND in predominantly African-American/Hispanic areas, but their customer service with people are the WORST and I will no longer continue to give them my money for their shitty services. They only get a five finger discount from me :-) ;-).
