On Friday, March 9, 2012, Nassau County Legislator David Denenberg (D-Merrick) attended Compare Foods’ ribbon cutting ceremony in Freeport, which celebrated remodeling and other major changes to the supermarket. To name a few, the store was extended in length, a new façade was built, a high-tech P.O.S. cash register system was installed and the store added two more aisles for shopping.
During the morning ceremony, ‘Harvest for the World ‘ parked a truck outside the store and provided free food to local residents who needed it. Chicken, ham, rice, string beans, oranges, watermelon and other groceries were donated to the public.
