Key Food taking Urban Market to Queens

A second location of Key Food’s Urban Market concept is set to open Friday in the New York City borough of Queens, the cooperative said.

The 8,000-square-foot store, located in Long Island City, will feature a large produce department offering equal selections of organic and regular products; an extensive cheese selection; and a gourmet deli with catering services.

Key Food debuted the Urban Market concept in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood a year ago.

“As the Urban Market banner continues to grow, we are ecstatic to become a member of the Long Island City community,” said John 
Durante, Key Food Stores Co-operative’s VP of business development. “The storeowner, Sam Mujalli, strives to offer customers the highest quality of fresh, organic produce and prepared foods along with the best possible shopping experience.”

The store will serve a growing community of high-rise developments on the East River waterfront. It will compete with a nearby Foodcellar & Co. that opened in 2008.

“As we become a new member of the Long Island City community, I look forward to offering customers not only the best selection, but also the best customer service experience around,” Mujalli said. “I’m confident customers will love this store’s classic, old school themed décor and the unique shopping environment that we have to offer.”
