Duane Reade's Groceries Are Now Fully Locked and Loaded

We didn't realize it at the time, but Duane Reade's sushi was just the tip of a very long ice pick. The drugstore chain's grocery ambitions are now fully locked and loaded, as evidenced by their new supermarket in Chelsea. Serious Eats took a wander through the store, and found such surprisingly diverse goods as Kashi cereal, Eli Zabar's bread, bagged lettuce, Siggi's Icelandic yogurt, and, even more unexpectedly, Ronnybrook milk. They also came upon a selection of prepared foods, and, wisely, did not try the sushi.
