Best Market opens in the old Northwoods Plaza

Best Market, is a chain from Long Island, New York City with a store set to open Oct 25th in Newington.

The store, near the town center at the site of a former Waldbaum’s Food Mart, is about 32,000 square feet — and is not likely to remain as the chain’s only Connecticut location. The company is expecting to hire as many as 150 people and is scrambling toward a possible “soft” opening Oct 25th with a grand opening a week or so after that.
