People Flock To Arthur Avenue In The Bronx For Pre-Easter Shopping
WCBS 880’s Catherine Cioffi: People Are Waiting On Hour-Long Lines
The stores had very long lines and the streets were packed with cars and people.
Paul was among those waiting very patiently for his Easter antipasto.
“They have good quality and everything is fresh,” he said to WCBS 880 reporter Catherine Cioffi.
“So, right now you’re waiting on a very long line,” Cioffi observed.
“About an hour,” he said. “Yes, it’s worth it.”
Melissa from Larchmont was picking up meat, pastries, cheese, and pasta.
When asked why she travels all the way from Larchmont, she said “the food, the quality. You know, it’s the real thing.”
She said shopping for her Easter dinner at the location was a tradition and added to the holiday excitement, despite the large crowds and difficult parking.
