When we wrote about the surprising cluster of chain stores that sell groceries in a 1.5-mile stretch of the Niagara Falls Boulevard corridor in west Amherst, we thought we had covered them all:
Whole Foods (coming in September), Aldi, Feel-Rite Fresh Markets, Target, Tops Friendly Markets, Trader Joe's, Walmart and Wegmans. That's eight of them. Whew.
It turns out there are nine. At least nine.
It took a reader — thanks, Kris — to remind us that the BJ's Wholesale Club at 3056 Sheridan Drive sells fresh produce and other groceries.
Now, unlike the other stores, BJ's is a membership-based organization, with its website touting $50 or $100 annual costs for the privilege of shopping there. But Kris points out that BJ's often offers coupons for free 30-day or three-month trial memberships.
