Best Market to Move Into Waldbaum's Space

New supermarket expected to open by May.

The vacant Waldbaum's store in Huntington Station will reopen as a Best Market in May.

Jonathan Sender, spokesman for the Best Yet Market chain, said, "We're definitely going to refresh" the Turnpike Plaza store, which Waldbaum's occupied for about 40 years. "We’re all about fresh, from delis to fresh cuts of  meat, and bakeries. We’re a full-service market, with dairy and frozen items, and bring great values."

"All our stores are growing rapidly," he said."We're looking for a really good workforce. We have job fairs every Wednesday" at its corporate headquarters in Bethpage. He said the chain is looking to expand further on Long Island, and is also moving into a vacant Waldbaum's in Patchogue.

The Huntington Station store closed the first week of March. In recent weeks, workers have been renovating the space.

Best Yet is rebranding itself as Best Market.

Well they opened today. I walked in and thought I was in the old dirty, tired Waldbaums! BLAH! The AC was either not working or they were being cheap. Probably the only food store I've ever been in that was warm! Same old ugly shelves, freezers, etc. I can't tell you how many times those things broke and the food went bad. Yuck! They hardly updated anything! Let's see how long it lasts! I am so disappointed because I like the one in East Northport.

I went today and thought it was OK. Very warm like the others have said but I do love Best Yet and appreciate their prices. I am very happy about this supermarket being so close because the one in Northport was always a hike.

Update - Visited again and seems to be improving although the outdated feel is still there. I'll probably only be buying the sale items as some of the others are overpriced. Beats having to drive further for that last minute ingredient for supper! lol
