Have you been blue ever since Kings shut down in the Caldwells? Then be sure to check out the redesigned Verona Kings which will be revealed to shoppers later this month.
The community is invited to check out the Pompton Avenue supermarket’s many new features during a weekend-long, grand opening celebration starting with Kings’ signature pasta-cutting ceremony on Friday, Jan. 24.
Among the highlights are a section dedicated to Italian cooking stocked with pastas, sauces and oils. Look for new mezze, olive, salad and soup bars, as well as expanded cheese and prepared foods sections. There's also a new indoor café with Wi-Fi and a bigger floral department.
On the weekend of Jan. 24-Jan. 26, there will be nutritionist consultations, signature tastings and Cooking Studio demonstrations in the store, as well as ideas for hosting the perfect Super Bowl XLVIII party.
Kings will mark the occasion by making a monetary donation to the Human Needs Food Pantry, a non-profit organization based in Montclair which provides food, clothing and other services to residents of Essex County.
Check back for details about the grand opening.
