BROOKLYN - The Flatbush-Ditmas Park neighborhood is welcoming a newly expanded supermarket offering healthier options. 

Following an extensive makeover, the grocery store has reopened as a Key Food co-op on Cortelyou Road, meaning it's independently owned and operated under the Key Food brand umbrella. 

Shoppers can now find more options in its produce and dairy sections, including items from local farms and gardens. At 6,500 square feet, the larger store still has a neighborhood feel to it. 

Local leaders say the store's changes are meant to reflect its changing surroundings by providing a nice place to grocery shop for all backgrounds and incomes. 

The Key Food company was founded in Brooklyn back in 1937. It now includes more than 180 independently owned and operated grocery stores.
