Long Island has been abuzz recently with excitement over the grand opening of Stew Leonard’s at Kimco’s Airport Plaza in Farmingdale, New York. Nicknamed “The Disneyland of Dairy,” the grocery store opened its doors to swarms of crowds on January 20 at what is its fifth store and first Long Island location. The grocery store joined the existing Stew Leonard’s Wines that we have had in Airport Plaza for the past few years.

For Airport Plaza, Stew Leonard’s is a welcomed addition, now serving as the power center’s grocer anchor at 60,000 square feet. For the Long Island community, it’s the quality farm fresh purveyor the area has been missing and the source of 400 new jobs.

Hear what the Kimco team, the mayor of Farmingdale, the Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce, and Stew Leonard Jr. have to say about its new Farmingdale location in this video:
