Food Mart International in Spring Valley-- still worth visiting?

I learned about this here almost three years ago and really enjoyed my visit, but saw some recent reviews (not here) that seem to indicate that it's gone downhill. Anyone care to comment? Wondering if it's worth a stop as I return home from Philadelphia tomorrow-

  1. I was there a couple weeks ago, after not going for about a year. On my last visit, the shelves were rather understocked and I wondered if they were having financial trouble.

    On this visit, the shelves were well stocked, produce, fish, meats, frozen area were back to prior caliber. If you're in the area, it's worth stopping. If you're making a trip, I'd go to H-Mart. Or Fairway. Or both.

    Coming back from Philly, you might be able to hit a Wegman's in NJ without going way out of your way.

    1. According to this post, it's closed now (I found an article from last summer that it had filed for bankruptcy -- even had its power turned off for some hours due to non-payment)
