ISO canning jars near Woodside

I hit 7 stores tonight looking for canning jars (mason jars, etc.). Six didn't know what the hell I was talking about (!) and one said it was a seasonal item that they carry only in the summer/fall.

I'm looking for both 4 and 8 ounce sizes. Any ideas around Woodside, Jackson Heights, or Sunnyside?

  1. There is a weird odds and ends closeouts store in Sunnyside on Queens Blvd. 'South Pole' - I've seen mason jars there a year ago (sold by dozen in boxes). Have you checked Michaels on Northern blvd. in Woodside?

    1. How about Bed, Bath and Beyond? They have one in East Elmhurst and it's a nice walk from Jackson Heights.

      1. Is Zahner's Restaurant Supply still around?

        1. Neither South Pole nor BBB had it. Who knew it was such a rarity in Queens?

          I managed to find a few at the "Priced Rite" store on Roosevelt Ave and 62nd St. Just called Michael's and they seem to have it also.

          Thanks for all the tips!

          1. Not your location, but I just recently saw canning jars at the Chinese supermarket across Main Street from J&L Foodcourt in Flushing.
