Mazur's Marketplace, a 54-year-old, second generation kosher market that sells meat, groceries and take-out foods in the Little Neck section of Queens, will close down next week. Located in a strip shopping center on the Queens-Nassau County border at 254-51 Horace Harding Blvd., the kosher store once drew customers from both sides of the border.
According to co-owner Eddie Mazur, the business is a victim of increased competition from the likes of Fairway, which opened nearby in Douglaston about two years ago, and Costco. In addition, a bevy of kosher supermarkets have opened in recent years in Great Neck, Long Island, and Jamaica Estates, Queens.

Too much competition and not enough Jews

No doubt it will become a Korean market.
Free kosher kimchi for all!
This place has been over expensive and overrated for years.
Crains says it will be a petco, not a korean market anon1.
What's will all the Petcos opening in NYC? It's overkill! In a few years half of them will have to be shut down.
truth is, it's been difficult for them for a number of years to do well. there are very few orthodox jews in little neck so to have a glatt kosher supermarket doesnt make a lot of sense. when they had the deli next door people used to come from all over for it. the best and last glatt kosher deli in queens.
does anybody know to where Mazur Chef relocated, or how to reach him/her? please e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I used to shop there all the time as I work local. Their hours were inconvenient as they never closed later than 8PM. Their products were priced a little high, but their quality was good.
I'll remember that wonderful smell of fresh baked challah and bread hitting your face when you walked in.. they had a nice full service deli.. but it was pricey. And yes.. it will no doubt become a korean or chinese market.
The food was the most disgusting ever, I wouldn't give it to my dog he'd probably vomit from it. The hot food in their deli was either tough or raw or both. There cook was horrible.he was not a real kosher cook. The store was filthy, had roaches.
GARBAGE food was really disgusting.Whoever did the catering of food was horrible as much as the food was
Great staff, nice and helpful. Owners did not care about customers, they only worried the money that went into their cash registers.
Miss it. Come back. It had good home cooking at your fingertips. UGH , just kidding it was crap.
I did not know SHIT was kosher
Yummmmy, kosher KFC, actually KFC was BETTER
Where are Eddie and Lenny Mazur? I was a devout customer there.Any info, please provide.
I MISS them
No wonder shop delight put them out of business.They had good quality kosher food, no wonder they could not compete. You can!t put garbage before excellence. Can you?
Where are you?
Used to work for u.why you can not post a phone number so the people who worked for you can give a job to somebody who needed it after we left
They had rats and roaches. Once they lifted where the steam table was had field mice running through it,very appetizing
The worst kosher food ever
Pork chops would've been better
