Yelp users are excited about Foodtown, which currently holds 4.5 stars out of eight reviews on the site.

Yelper Andrew W., wrote, "I think it's great that the area finally has a supermarket.

I've been going ever since the grand opening and it's been a good experience overall."

Howie Z. noted, "It has private parking lot for customers. Just saw them bring in fresh produce and bread. Has most of the regular products found in other supermarkets. Maybe they will will have more culturally diverse goods later on."
