Former Owner Of Big Nick’s Discount Store Opens Deli On Bath Avenue


Big Nick Cavalieri, the former owner of Nick’s Discount Store at 1669 Bath Avenue, got in touch to tell us that he’s opened a new business – Neighborhood Guys Bagels Deli & Grocery at 1656 Bath Avenue.

We wrote about Cavalieri back in late 2011, after the discount store was featured in the New York Times for Nick’s ability to connect with customers regardless of the changing demographics. Just a month later, in January 2012, he sold the discount store after 35 years, attributing it to… changing demographics.

But Big Nick is back, and now he’s slinging some chicken parm – and, quite frankly, wherever you may hail from, chicken parm is speaking your language.

Check out the new store and let us know how it is!
