Free Eggs !

November 3, 2010 3 comments

Well, almost. Our newest natural food store, Greenline Organic, on Austin St., is giving away a box of eggs with any purchase of $12 or more. One of the employees told me this promotion will last another month or so, as long as supplies last. So if you’re into eggs, and haven’t paid a visit to this attractive new organic store, now is the perfect time!

Organic Competition Heats Up

October 17, 2010 1 comment

I stopped into the new Greenline Organic store on Austin today. As I walked inside I heard one lady exclaim: “Our neighborhood needs more places like this!” And that about sums up my impression too. I think it’s a charming addition to our local food shopping choices here in Forest Hills.

The first thing I noticed is the store is very upscale-looking, and it overflows with a very attractive arrangement of produce onto the sidewalk in front.

The store has everything you’d expect from an organic market, and everything they stock looks very fresh. I noticed they have some meats and salads like chicken salad and tuna also.

I’m not going to complain, but I have to point out that the store may test your shopping patience a bit! As you head to the back where the store splits into two sections, one for veggies and one for dairy, there is room for only one person at a time to fit into those spaces, unless you are thin as a rail. But like I said—as I munch on the delicious red grapes I bought from the place today—I am not going to complain. We definitely can use more stores that are as inviting and pleasing as this in Forest Hills.

Speaking of the grapes I bought, they cost me $3.38 for the bag. I also bought a couple of apples which together came out to 83 cents. I also bought a box of organic tea for $3.39 (the same box is priced $4.99 at Natural).

So there you have my report from my brief sojourn into our new organic store here in The Hills. I am interested in hearing your impressions as well, so feel free to share them below. Also see the previous post about this store for more info on it, including another detailed review of one shopper’s experience there.

Just  a quick FYI — the new Greenline Organic store on Austin St., which opened today, is open 24 hours, according to one reader who stopped by there already. I will pay it a visit this weekend to check it out and then post my impressions.
