East Village Grocery

There are plenty of grocery stores in the in East Village but none have a massive selection as this one. I live in the neighborhood and shop here regularly. I have also used their online delivery service. The people that work there are friendly and always willing to help. A couple of things I really like about the place is their beer collection and flowers. The place does need a facelift.

Great Delivery service

Hmm not sure why the previous review had issues with this place must be something personal, I found them thru and have been using their online delivery service for a little over a year now. I have ordered flowers, Beers, Ice Cream and even firewood in the middle of the night. The service was quick and I found the delivery person to be polite and very patient. He also offered help to bring things to my kitchen counter I count that as a true "quality Grocer at your doorstep" There was one item missing in my order but the gentleman that called offered me options and suggested similar item which I found very helpful. I also had an opportunity to visit them at their east village location. This place is perfect example of "tiny but mighty". they have packed the place merchandise. My overall experience has been very pleasant and recommend others to support this local business..

Never ever order from this place!!!!

I have ordered from here 4 times, and 3 out of the 4 deliveries were missing items. The staff is awful, and selection is way over priced. They also took 2 hrs to deliver, and were only 15 blocks away. Only an idiot would have anything delivered from this place. Save yourself the headache and NEVER order from this place!!!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
