BROOKLYN, N.Y.–Bogopa Service Corporation today announced its acquisition of the Fairway Market in Westbury, N.Y. The addition comes on the heels of Bogopa’s takeover of two other former Fairway Market stores just weeks ago in Red Hook, Brooklyn and Douglaston, Queens.
Bogopa is a family-owned business that has operated grocery stores in the New York area for 32 years, and currently operates 28 supermarkets under the “Food Bazaar” banner in New York City, New Jersey, Long Island, Connecticut and Westchester County, N.Y.
“The acquisitions of the Fairway stores make for very exciting times for Bogopa, and we are eager to show all the shoppers at these former Fairway locations that Food Bazaar will be keeping much of the same services and quality they have come to expect, while continuing the outstanding online shopping convenience with Instacart,” said Edward Suh, Executive Vice President for Bogopa Service Corporation.
Fairway and Food Bazaar share similar core values and principles and are committed to making the transition as seamless as possible for customers, employees and partners. Under the new Food Bazaar name, the neighborhood grocery store will continue to cater to the community it serves, while delivering unrivaled perishables, organics, international foods, specialty coffees, e-commerce (via Instacart) and service. Employees at the store will continue in their roles and will be welcomed to the Food Bazaar family.
