I made a trip to Nino Salvaggio on Hall Road in Clinton Township, MI to review the store for this website. This is a beautiful store. The store front is very welcoming. As you head in you are greeted by a huge selection of fresh produce. I took advantage of their sale on a ½ flat of strawberries for $.5.99. They tasted much sweeter than the strawberries I have gotten at my local mega marts this month. They also had a nice selection of oranges, apples, and international produce like mangoes and guavas.
Also right near the door is a computer where you can make your deli order, so that it will be ready for pick up by the time you make your way to that department. Speaking of the deli department, is huge. The unique thing about it is that the meat is right in front of the customer, with no glass separation. So you can pick up the plastic covered turkey, and get a close look at the packagining before announcing your selection to the deli counter worker.
Close by to the deli counter, they have a nice selection of premium hot dogs: Dearborn, National Coney Island, and Hebrew National to name a few. They had products from Hebrew National that I have never seen before, such as mini hot dogs, that you would use for an appetizer.
Across from the deli, you have a huge selection of cheese. They pretty much have it all covered from fresh mozzarella to blue cheese to Gouda to Colby (which is what I got). They offer weekly sales on their cheese.
The store also has a bakery, with fresh baked artisan bread, a seafood section, butcher section, bulk foods (nuts, gummies, etc), and dairy section. I like how the dairy section is located right near the checkout, so you can grab your milk and yogurt the very last thing. They also have dried foods, pastas, wine, juice, and carbonated drinks near the checkout. I bought a couple 4-pack of Frostie soda on sale.
Overall, Nino is a very comfortable, enjoyable shopping experience. They have some good sales and it's a nice place to come and stock up on some high quality food. The only drawback to this location is that it's located on busy Hall Road, you have to be patience turning out of the store during high traffic times.
There are two other locations: one in St. Clair Shores on Harper Ave. and the other in Troy on Rochester Rd.
