Freshway owner says rumors about store in Throgs Neck not opening are untrue

The owner of the new Freshway Market in Throgs Neck is putting an end to the rumors that the store may not oepn.

Residents say they have been hearing rumors about the store not opening, and in Throgs Neck that's big news. Throgs Neck is an area where supermarkets are hard to come by. In fact, just last week the area's last supermarket, C-Town, closed its doors. So when word that construction on the Freshway Market was halted because of possible financial trouble, residents were concerned.

But the owner of Freshway says the rumors are not true. He says after a bumpy start, the market is under construction and preparing for a grand opening.

The owner says he hopes to have the store up and running by the end of the month.
