Brooklyn-based Bogopa Service Corporation, operator of 26 Food Bazaar Supermarkets in the New York tri-state area, has acquired two Fairway Markets in Red Hook, Brooklyn and Douglaston, Queens in a supplemental bankruptcy auction.
The properties will be rebranded as Food Bazaar. Fairway filed for Chapter 11 protection in January.
“These two new Food Bazaar locations will continue to provide the Douglaston and Red Hook communities with the highest quality and variety of perishables, groceries, and other unique food offerings that our shoppers have come to expect,” said Fairway CEO Abel Porter. “We are pleased to pass the baton to Food Bazaar, knowing they will welcome our employees to the Bogopa family and will deliver a world-class shopping experience for their customers.”
The first New York Food Bazaar supermarket opened in 1988. Company founder Francis An was born in Korea, raised in Argentina and then moved to New York.
