Every year when June rolls around I’m physically struck by just how beautiful this area we call home can become. The word, “lush” pops up every time I try to describe the Pennsylvania Wilds to a relative or friend who doesn’t live around here. We are truly blessed, particularly this time of year. Enough so that it more than makes up for the months of ice, snow, gray skies and frigid temperatures we endure to get here!
We are now in our 20th year of operation at the 407 E. Water St. location. Couple that with the 53 years we spent first on West Main and after that at 323 E. Water St, we’ve been in business in Smethport nearly three quarters of a century. That milestone will be upon us before we realize it. When my Dad’s first store in Roulette burned down in February of 1950, he drew a circle on a map and with the less than adequate insurance money began to search for an existing grocery store. He found Kohn’s Market on West Main Street and we’ve been here ever since.
Now, in our third generation, Costa’s Supermarket is committed to offering the best selection we can at the best prices we can. We’re currently using dozens of warehouses and vendors in an effort to minimize our costs – the savings of which we pass on directly to you. As the warmer months get into full swing, watch for pallet size displays and special buys from the recent food show that will help you accommodate any graduation parties, family reunions and neighborhood barbeques that you plan on hosting. We’re not going anywhere anytime soon and we plan on upgrading and improving our store and our offerings for your convenience and satisfaction!
