UPDATE 6/6/18: While the new NetCost Market in Sheepshead Bay was due to have its soft opening today, the store remains closed. A spokesperson for the company confirmed that they would not be open for business, but did not provide a reason for the delay.
Currently, there is no updated timetable for when the business will open. We will update when new information becomes available.
SHEEPSHEAD BAY – The latest addition to the NetCost Market chain of Eastern European grocery stores will have a soft opening on June 6th June at 3100 Ocean Avenue in Sheepshead Bay. Once it opens, it will remain open 24/7.
The location that formerly was home to Gala Farms, and Waldbaums before that, offers plenty of parking (170 spots). The store was already half stocked today, with workers finishing up on the facade.
NetCost Market’s regular offerings include an excellent selection of Russian and Lithuanian breads, best dairy in Brooklyn, a huge selection of hard to find beers from small European countries, prepared foods, pickles, lots of smoked meats … This location will also have a specialty sushi counter and a butcher’s counter, as well as a carousel, Daniel Gavrilov, their VP of Marketing tells us.
For any of you who grew up in the former Soviet Union, it is so worth your time to stop by at least once. The first NetCost Market was opened nearby on East 16th Street back in 2000 by a father and son – Sam and Eduard Shnayder. The team has expanded since then, as has the number of stores across southern Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Their upscale stores are operated under Gourmanoff brand.
