I'm sad to report that the CU Supermarket in the Ames plaza is going out of business. Anyone who lives in (or frequently visits) New Paltz is probably familiar with CU, which is (or was) a funky little market stocking all sorts of unusual Asian specialties and other imported foods and hard-to-find goodies as well as fresh produce, all at great prices.
They're blowing out their stock and there have been great bargains to be had, but I hear that their shelves are pretty well picked-over as of yesterday.
So long, CU. I'll miss you.
