once a charming family owned business, this once well-respected institution has degenerated into a slop shop with sassy unresponsive personnel who, sadly, include family members. in response to a complaint, your writer (who has been in the quarter since the store was a corner grocery and a bar room) was told to shop elsewhere by the grand-daughter of the original owner, a woman called nia. with the new rouse's at st. peter and royal going overboard to be customer-friendly, it is surprising that matassa's cares so little. no problem, though. i can shop elsewhere. so many of my neighbors have decided to do so, anyway. after going bankrupt once, i suppose it doesn't bother them to do it, again!
Pros: Once an Asset
Cons: Horrendous Service
