Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace recently opened the doors of its newest specialty grocery store at 1170 Deer Park Avenue in North Babylon, N.Y. The new digs mark the Melville, N.Y.-based company’s seventh store on Long Island and its ninth overall. Built on the site of a former King Kullen, the full-service 39,241-square-foot supermarket features Uncle Giuseppe’s trademark high-quality, Italian-themed offerings.
Old World Meets Modern Family
“We are especially proud of our team members who work tirelessly every day to ensure the Uncle Giuseppe's experience, and this newest store is no exception,” said Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace CEO Carl DelPrete. “As we continue to grow our brand and add new locations, we will always remain true to our mission, to be more than just a supermarket and to always provide a great shopping experience with a dedicated staff who understands the meaning of customer service.”
Lights, Camera, Action, Cheese
As with all Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplaces, the North Babylon location will feature a full-service deli offering homemade dishes prepared using traditional Old World recipes, and special viewing rooms where pasta and mozzarella are made fresh daily, directly in front of the customer through protective glass partitions.
A Deli Designed to Delight
The new store features an extensive variety of pre-packaged meals and a soup and salad area with an array of ready-to-eat items prepared daily by the in-store chefs of Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace. Meanwhile, sushi chefs are on deck to create a variety of rolls, sashimi and custom dishes.
“Our team is ready and focused on providing the very best of what Uncle Giuseppe’s has to offer,” said Vincent Zisa, North Babylon store manager, in a release. “The owners put so much thought, energy and ingenuity into this location, including state-of-the-art kitchen equipment that allows our chefs the opportunity to produce quality food at an expedited pace to keep up with demand. We’re committed and we’ll be a good neighbor and member of the North Babylon community.”
A Baker, a Butcher and a Cheesemaker
The store is also home to an in-house bakery showcasing specialty cakes, pastries, breads and desserts; a custom-cut meat department with in-house butchers; a bounty of fresh and organic produce; a full seafood department; and a gourmet cheese department displaying selections from around the world.
A Tasty Trio: Chocolate, Candy and Gelato
A gourmet chocolate, candy and gelato station greets shoppers as they enter the store, and a full coffee and espresso bar is also available with ample seating at a six-foot distance. These offerings are rounded out by general grocery, dairy and frozen food to deliver an exciting, one-stop shopping destination. For added convenience, Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace offers home delivery and curbside pickup.
