With all the shelters near by, old timers, and homeowners and renters not able or willing to spend money too much money on snacks, food, cleaning supplies and apparel, etc. it is needed and welcomed by many. I had many people visit me from other neighborhoods who told me that the super markets and eateries are over priced in Astoria even though there a good number of them. Most families who live in Astoria and are here long term tend to flock to these more affordable stores. It is excellent for those on a budget and those looking to save.


These types of stores are so bad for undermining wage stability. Sorry to see another one open in Queens.
