History Made When Pomegranate is Named Supermarket of the Month by Leading Food Industry Publication

New York…Never before has a kosher supermarket been recognized as the “Supermarket of the Month” by the leading publication of the food industry. Brooklyn’s Pomegranate received the recognition as the Supermarket of the Month in the August/September issue of Progressive Grocer. Owned by The Nielsen Company, Progressive Grocer has been the leading voice of the industry for over 80 years, with exclusive access to proprietary research such as ACNielsen, Spectra, TD Linx and Scarborough. The publication gave high marks to Pomegranate in every section of the store. It particularly focused on service: “Many supermarkets tout their customer service, but Pomegranate approaches this aspect of its offering with particular zeal. A "super-friendly" staff attends to all shoppers needs, from helping them find products to placing grocery bags in their cars, says general manager Mayer Gold, adding that customer suggestions are always welcome.” Pomegranate recently celebrated its first anniversary with a great deal of fanfare.
