WE WELCOME YOU!
We are a friendly neighborhood grocery store and have been owned and operated by the same family since 1950. We genuinely care about our customers and all their needs. That is why our motto is, “We are your one stop store!” With the freshest meats, seafood, quality produce and a full-service deli featuring Boarshead lunch meats and cheese. ~ Photo below, Guastello’s Village Market circa 1950.
A Fun Fact About Grocery Stores!
The first grocery stores were set up as trading posts which sold not only food but clothing, household items, tools, furniture, and other miscellaneous merchandise. These trading posts evolved into larger retail businesses known as general stores. Modern grocers—like supermarkets, greengrocers, and convenience stores—are descended from general stores. Many rural areas still contain general stores which sell goods from indigenous cigars to imported napkins. In certain places, these may also handle goods deemed illegal by the local authority. These stores normally offer credit facility, a system of payment which works on trust rather than current day credit cards.
