I am writing to say “good riddance” to the Dan's Key Food at 138-37 Queens Boulevard in Briarwood.
Over the last 25 years, I had complained about many issues, including empty shelves of advertised sale products, unfriendly staff, poor customer service, and outright nastiness of their managers.
Management in Briarwood is changing hands to the renters of a property at Yellowstone and Queens boulevard in Forest Hills, since Dan's is demolishing that property for a high rise.
If these new owners do not improve the quality of food and customer service, I won't be calling their corporate owners. Rather, I will be filing complaints with the appropriate government agencies.
There are other options, such as Food Town, ShopRite, and Stop N Shop. And when the new development is available at the old Flagship Diner site across from Key Food, I will ensure that the commercial rental space goes to one of the latter supermarkets.
