It's time for our second (and final) Dale's Market, and you can see Branchville here; and it's also time for our third (and final) Blairstown store! This 5500 square foot store is a great little supermarket in downtown Blairstown and doesn't seem to be all that hurt by the large ACME (and former A&P, which moved from up route 94).
Dale's is a full supermarket, despite its small size. We have produce in the first aisle with deli and butcher on the back wall, with frozen and dairy on the right side. This store feels a little more like a traditional supermarket than Branchville, which feels like an overgrown general store. That's not to say that this is a less fun place, or that it's a large store.
Nice chalkboard signage for the departments! As we see, there's a little bit of everything in here, and there are roughly four or five aisles I'd say.
Nonfoods very present here as well.
And of course, the core of the business is here in the back: deli, prepared foods, and meats! Love the classic grocery store look of this section, but clearly it's been maintained beautifully. Tomorrow we move on to a little general store just to the east tomorrow here on The Independent Edition!
