The reason behind the lack of produce and other items at the Fresh and Green's in Hampden is anyone’s guess.
On the outside of the building there’s a sign that reads “Open now. Renovations soon.”
But inside the store, which took over the location from Superfresh this summer, there’s virtually no produce, unstocked shelves and no fresh meat.
The reasons for the lack of items isn’t clear. Management at the store referred Patch to district manager Bill Snyder for comment on the store’s condition.
Snyder was reached by telephone Monday afternoon, but refused to comment on what was happening at the store.
The lack of items in stock has led many readers to giving scathing reviews online at places such as Yelp.
"I came in wanting some items to make a salad with. I go into the veggie section and.... emptiness. I'm not exaggerating here... there was NOTHING stocked on the shelves. No lettuce, no spinach, no cabbage.... they didn't even have the pre-packaged salads either! I don't know if there was a produce display malfunction (in which case they should have had a sign) or if someone just dropped the ball in ordering the items (unacceptable) or what.... but it's kind of a joke that a supermarket calling themselves "Fresh and Green's" doesn't carry any fresh greens."
