Grocery Shopping Chelsea in Sandy Aftermath
The Union Sq Whole Foods was open on Thursday, the rest of the stores followed shortly thereafter, they were all running on generators before the power came back. We grabbed some dry ice from ConEd late on Thursday and bought some groceries at Whole Foods right after! Felt like a miracle.
I've been to the Union Sq twice as well as the Bowery one, and yes they ARE getting deliveries of eggs, milk, and meat. Eggs seemed to be OK, milk was going pretty fast.Not all shelves are fully stocked, yet, though, and they have mentioned some temporary shortages of certain items.
