Old-style general store with an eye to future

Princeton Quick Pick Grocery has general merchandise too.

Getting back to the old general store ideals and providing a quality yet affordable place for residents to shop at is the goal for Jen and Dave Nesbitt, owners/operators of Princeton’s Quick Pick Grocery. While going back to the general store ideals, the Nesbitts are moving forward into the future as well offering residents the opportunity to order food and products online, making payments easy with a PayPal account. The Nesbitts want residents to know that they are not just “a convenience store” any longer. “We want to help people on budgets, ” said Jen. As well as the usual convenience of quick grocery items, lottery and tobacco products, the Nesbitts have expanded the store to include: clothing; fabric and notions; camping and fishing items, gardening goods, housewares, small space furniture, decorative items, craft items including scrapbooking and knitting along with how-to guides; stationery supplies, greeting cards and gift items. The Nesbitts’ sense of humour can be found in some of the decorative and or gift items that they carry. Stop in at the store located at 220 Bridge Street and check out their “Moink.” In the front window of Quick Pick Grocery there are two bargain tables full of quality items at reasonable prices —another addition to the new shopping experience offered by the Nesbitts. Keep up with shopping specials and store activities at facebook.com/princeton.quickpick and or visit their website: www.quickpickgrocery.webs.com to enjoy warehouse shopping on-line from the comfort of your home. Pick up of your items will be available at the store once a month. Store hours are Monday and Tuesday: 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays closed for a day of rest. Stop in to the new and improved Quick Pick Grocery, the Nesbitts will be happy to show you what’s new and talk to you about their latest endeavor to assist you with your shopping needs.
