Bravo International Supermarket, located at 34-12 34th Ave., has begun transitioning into a C-Town, according to a store manager.
The supermarket has a tentative date of April 1 to make the change official, but the first signs of change have already occurred.
Yesterday a C-Town sign was hung up in place of a Bravo Supermarket one, store manager Yvette Diaz said.
Both Bravo Supermarket and C-Town fall under the Krasdale Foods banner. Therefore the name of the business will be the only major change, according to Diaz.
The supermarket will maintain the same management, as well as all the same employees and produce.
“The sales [discounts] may be different, but nothing major,” she said.
The store will continue to carry the same products.
“We will still have our European products, Mediterranean and Asian products,” Diaz said.
“Whatever you can imagine we will try to offer it,” she added. “Our produce will always be fresh and our customer service will continue to be great.”
The name change is taking place because C-Town is a more recognizable brand than Bravo, Diaz said.
“We always wanted to open as a C-Town,” Diaz said about the supermarket, which opened in 2006. “But there was a C-Town very close by so we opted not to do that as it didn’t make sense business wise.”
That C-Town, which was located at 29-10 Broadway, closed this past summer so construction that will bring four additional floors and 64-apartments could begin.
“Now that there isn’t the other C-Town we can switch to the name that we have always wanted,” Diaz said.
