Looking for Indie Budget Supermarket Location in greater NYC area

I'm a new filmmaker with a small production team based out of Brooklyn and, as you can imagine, we're having a hard time finding an affordable supermarket to film in for a couple hours as part of a self-funded short film. Anything within an hour drive of the city would work. Thought I would try the boards here to see if anything turns up. Happy to pay a scout / finder's fee or include you in the whole process if you have any leads. Thanks!

I am not from NYC but I can give you some advice.
Don't ask big supermarkets or shops of retail chains. They mostly reject you because they have company policies. Ask small businesses owned by one person. They will let you film in their shop more likely. Especially if you offer them to make some advertisement for them.
