Iconic Spurbeck’s Grocery Re-Opens in Cooperstown
Spurbeck’s Grocery proprietor Mike Swatling, center right, assisted by his aunt, Kristi Swatling, and Ashley Young of Cherry Valley, foreground, takes sandwich orders over the noon hour. The venerable landmark at Railroad and Leatherstocking opened today after months of extensive interior renovations. Lining up to be served are Jeremiah Parr, Lucas Busse and Matt Kehoe, who work for BTS, installing fiberoptic cable for Middleburgh Telephone’s new downtown Internet “hotspots.” The new Spurbeck’s has tables and chairs if you want to lunch in, but a similar menu, as well as Palatine Cheese and other products regulars are used to. A beer cave is being added in the basement. It’s open 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, 8 to 3 Saturdays, and closed on Sundays. Spurbecks has been closed for several weeks for renovations.
The store was founded by Orlando Spurbeck in 1941.
