C-Town sold after Hurricane Sandy
(Page 3 of 3)
The inside of the store was completely damaged during the storm.

“When we closed, they were basically all out of work,” Koff said. ”We carried the health insurance for a few. My lead people have been in touch with [Hassin], and when the interviewing process starts, they’re welcome to apply.”

Koff declined to discuss how much the business was sold for, but said that it was his goal to make sure that the space reopened as a supermarket.

“I’m sorry that I’m going out this way, but I’m pleased that I made sure that it will remain a supermarket,” said Koff, who added that he’s planning to work as an assistant golf coach with his son, a golf pro at Eisenhower Park. “When this all happened, a lot of options were on the table, but we only entertained those who said they would keep it a supermarket. [Hassin] knows it’s a great location, and he’s in it for the long haul.”

C-Town was left pretty much abandoned for 3 months before they started clearing anything out. Left to rot and stink.

I know this because I can see C-Town from my home and had to endure the stench of the rotting meat, food, and hurricane mess every day until a dumpster finally came.

Not donating to the loyal West End customers who kept them in business all these years is a disappointment and I feel a snub.

It’s a heartbreaking situation for all at the fate of C-Town, a West End fixture. Yes the friendly folks will be missed.
