What Happened to C-TOWN in the West End???? Where are they? do they even care about the community. No effort at all to open its doors.

C-Town has always been a great community Grocery Store. No matter what you think, the meat department had great meat! PLease let The Koff family and their partners that there are many Westenders who are rooting for them and their comeback.

I am rooting for the Koff Family and the staff. They do provide a great service and in light of what happened now have to negotiate more than just the loan process. Contrary to what people think, the SBA doesn't just hand over money....it's a process. And for those who use Patch to lob punches at individual proprietors, leave it alone.

Did any of C-Town's detractors ever imagine what it would be like to deal with the ramifications of losing their family home AND a business? That's what happened, and shame on you for trashing good, hard-working people.

Having heard that they are planning a return. I wish them good luck and hope they have cleaned or are cleaning up soon. A newly renovated store that is kept clean would be a great thing for the West End.

As a employee or should i say former employee i am no longer held by the bounds to say what really as happened at C town. First off i have nothing to gain by this, i don't want anything from anyone, I just want the truth to be told so everyone can see what is really going on. I speak only for myself. For all of us the super storm hit a month ago, but for us at C town the storm hit in the summer of 2011, When the owners Robbie & Barry Koff forced us to vote the union out so they could save money and thus save the store, Barry on a daily basis would threaten us with closing the store if we didn't vote the union out , anyone who would listen to him when they walked into the store he would tell them the same thing he was feeding us. So on a August day in the summer of 2011 they had a employee who had been there for over 30 years pass around a petition to vote the union out. Using high school kids ( baggers & cashiers ) the vote passed and the union was voted out. They got workers scared of losing there jobs , workers thought they were doing the right thing, people who had been there for 20,30,40 years were promised there pension money they were lied too and to make matters worse the Koff's were givin the petition it was left at the front desk so they knew who voted and who didn'.But saving the store wasn't the Koff agenda o because 6 months later they put the store up for sale. Most of us know that it easier to sell a store with non-union workers the koffs dubbed everyoneg into thinking that this was the right think to do, After the vote was passed they took away vacation time, sick time, and holiday time (2013) even on the day of the storm the koff's put another nail into there employees they didn't pay them for that day. In the days and weeks that followed Sandy the Koffs once again screwed there employees and yes i know everyone was dealing with the damage to there homes, but even to this day December 5 they have never held a meeting with any of there employees to even tell them there plans, they walked away from the workers who give there heartsto them, people who gave there lives to them the Koff's abandoned there workers and from what it seems they also have abandoned the west end. When people needed food the Koff's with a supermarket full of food did nothing for the west end did nothing for there loyal customers and did nothing for the city of Long Beach, it was almost a joke to see Barry on Tv crying that he lost his cars, his boat, his business, when he had workers who lost everything they owned, gutless & heartless is what i would call them, If some of you want to sit there and praise them think again, there father rebuilt that store after it caught fire, he didnt abandon the people he served the community that he helped build. Rob & Barry Koff are a different story, they run when things get tough they close there eyes to the real world because it is all about them.
