Neglected Cereal Boxes

Cereal Trauma at King’s Supermarket in Hoboken

If you walk by the Kings Supermarket along Hudson St. uptown, you’ll notice that a pretty good part of the time, the back of these product shelves have many boxes of cereal that toppled over. And God knows for how long they stay there to bake in the sun. You’d think that they’d conceive some kind of shelf or barrier to prevent this unsightly event from happening.

Just be sure to check the expiration date of any cereal you buy from here!

Instead of overpriced condos, why can’t Hoboken build a vertical mini-mall like the Manhattan Mini Mall at 34th Street? The lower level could be parking, the entire ground floor an anchor store like Target, then the upper floors various smaller stores. Being in a mall instead of a stand alone store would help the smaller boutique type stores. There is plenty of space uptown to do something like this.

Since Dawn Zimmer seems to be such a good buddy of Chris Christie, she should petition the state to get the enterprise sales tax rate. This would help the retail stores in Hoboken be more competitive with the rest of Hudson County. I believe it is only Secaucus and Hoboken that have the full sales tax rate. This unfairly burdens our merchants.

snippy walmarts is about the cheapest $$$ in regard to everything..their cake is great and just about everything is within the price range..Coscos /BJ’s trader joes all the same and two miles away in newport city area..to close..Kings has hight priced prepaired food but the food is good.. Any time one eats mayo there taking a chance in any fast food place and restuarant..That crap they put on burgers in mc donalds is unnecessary…I know a health inspector from the state,told me i should check the kitchens where they prep the food..wow..your chinese take outs are the worse..One never knows and yet mom and daughter complain about cereal boxes? Best some stick to the convienence stores who buy at kings shoprite and a@p..Carefull of chicken too Best to cook at home.. 🙂 [quote comment=”211570″]Instead of overpriced condos, why can’t Hoboken build a vertical mini-mall like the Manhattan Mini Mall at 34th Street?

Kings must read Hoboken411 – the big jars of mayo weren’t in the window today. Its not the point of the dates – its the way they had it stored in the hot sun all day. The date on the container could be valid, but that doesn’t mean the contents are still good. And these are the big jars that their deli uses internally, not the jars they sell to customers.

It’s good that they moved the jars out of the sun.

I say bring Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods to Hoboken! That would make Shoprite & Kings shape up!

Seems like somebody here needs to think outside the box 😉 I have noticed this issue and it bothers me that they have such a darn mess right in the window.

if it weren’t for bull chit there would be nothing to bitch about except itchy undies. The mayo is dated,and the cereal is in a car board container aka box..The naysayers have a choice,go to the pakistan or indian store and buy outdated products with mice running around..Check the last date of sale on their items..

Last week my mother and I were in Kings (Shipyards) and she noticed at the deli counter they have the big jars of mayo up on the shelf in the window directly in the hot sun. How long have they been baking, to then be used in their salads or on people’s sandwich orders?
