The Cedarhurst Business Improvement District is proud to award Moshe Ratner, Yoeli Steinberg, and Gourmet Glatt as the 2013 Merchant of the Year, in recognition of their commitment to the Village of Cedarhurst, excellent customer service, and a reliable, quality retail establishment.
Gourmet Glatt, a popular kosher food emporium located in Cedarhurst, has been in business for over 30 years. Despite a prolonged economic recession, a major fire, and losing nearly all of its perishable products after Superstorm Sandy, Gourmet Glatt continues to innovate and expand, creating local jobs and rising to become one of Cedarhurst’s leading anchor stores.
In the past decade, Gourmet Glatt has transformed itself from a neighborhood grocery store into one of the most popular one-stop shopping kosher food emporiums in the greater New York area and beyond. People come from as far away as New Jersey, Westchester, and Connecticut to shop at the now famous superstore.
The freshest kosher bakery, the finest kosher cuts of meat, a huge variety of deli foods, Israeli specialties, extensive gluten-free selections, a sushi cafÃ©, a stunning selection of flowers, beautiful kosher gift baskets, and more–Gourmet Glatt has it all.
And Gourmet Glatt prides itself on its strict guidelines when it comes to kosher supervision. “The main ingredients for the success of Gourmet Glatt are teamwork and a never-ending focus on fulfilling our customer’s needs,” says Ratner. “Service with a smile and helping our customers is our number-one priority.”
When asked what advice he would give to a new business opening in the area, Ratner said, “Start every day as a new one and look at your business from the outside. Don’t become complacent with the status quo.” His favorite quote: “Let’s get it done!”
Gourmet Glatt, located at 137 Spruce Street, is open six days a week. Store hours are Sunday and Monday, 7:00 a.m.—7:00 p.m.; Tuesday, 7:00 a.m.—8:00 p.m.; Wednesday, 7:00 a.m.—10:00 p.m.; Thursday, 7:00 a.m.—11:00 p.m.; and Friday, 7:00 a.m. to two hours before Shabbos.
