Last Monday, I had a horrible experience at the deli in Piermont (corner of 9W and Rte 340). They tried to charge me around $1.50 extra for a Gatorade and a banana. Just wondering if anyone else has had any bad experiences with this place.

horrible experience?

A horrible experience is when you get run over coming out of the deli. You were annoyed, that's all.

i've seen posts on this message board compalining about...

...being overcharged by pennies...having said that, in the grand scale of things, losing $1.50 would be catastrophic. :)

Yes - that is not a place you want to patronize, unless you need a day laborer.

Just around the corner is a reputable place. It is on Piermont Ave. (one-way going west) just east of 9W, well before the town center.

I think Chris means Canzona's Market

As a Piermont resident, I highly recommend it. It is at 254 Piermont Ave, along the canal and sort of behind the old silk mill brick bldg.

Ask Carl or Mike to make you an Italian combo club($5 or so)--dont even try to eat the full Ital hero & even THINK about getting back on your bike.

The place is a little blue collarish but immaculate and hasn't been affected much by the trendy visitors to Piermont. Bon appetit!

The food was good and the folks behind the counter were very nice and gave quick service. Not a lot of space to park bikes, though. No seating, either, so you'll want to find a spot to eat afterwards.

...As I was saying back in mid-May (to some derision)...

Subject: Unfixed prices, high prices, and complete ingratitude to us.

Not a thank you to any of the ten riders. Bananas that last week were 50¢ were 59¢ when charged by one person and 50¢ when charged by another. Overall high prices.

This is the deli just across the overpass on 9W as you would go into Piermont, or, from the other direction, coasting down from Tweed on 9W, where there's a pull-in parking lot and immigrant day laborers congregate hoping to find work.

The previous owner was friendly and appreciative enough; the new ones, especially the woman, are not.

Compare and contrast: the owner of the market on the canal road where there is the road crossing the canal very specifically, some past week, thanked the group for stopping.

Conclusion: I invite you to join me in withholding your patronage from the MiniMart.

And is there no such place outside of Piermont but near it where there is a toilet?


Update: We're all pleased with Canzona's market wherer the staff is unfailingly appreciative. We take the food across the canal and sit and picnic by the canal bank across from the church.The only rub is that following lunch we slough uphill through Tallman Park.

I think there are bathrooms in Tallman Park

during the warm season. Porta potties in the State Line Lookout off 9W.
