NEW YORK — “Everything. Better.”
That's the slogan for Pomegranate, a new 20,000-square-foot kosher store in the Midwood section of Brooklyn that some industry observers describe as a kosher version of Whole Foods Market.
The three-month-old store boasts a large selection of natural and organic foods, like organic meats and juices and whole-grain cereals.
It also has three kosher kitchens, and a variety of prepared meals and a vast appetizer section, store manager Mayer Gold told SN. There's even valet parking.
The retailer's website, www.thepompeople.com, is under construction.
Though it caters mostly to observant Brooklyn Jews, it appeals to other consumers as well with one-stop-shopping positioning and a hearty assortment of specialty foods like sushi, panko bread crumbs, homemade cheeses, hand-stuffed olives, aged beef-rib steaks and kumquats.
