Lunenburg resident aims to bring ocean-fresh seafood inland wit...

Full story: Sentinel & Enterprise

Like a message in a bottle, the idea of bringing fresh fish to Leominster came to Joan Fontaine as she sat on the beach more than a year ago.

Stopped in on Saturday, the price of Haddock was more than double the price at S&S. Needless to say, I drove to Fitchburg. Their fish might have been good, but their prices need to be more in line to compete.

Great stuff, nice and clean. More expensive than SS but the quality was a cut above.

For squid lovers, try the squid - a buck more than SS but by far the best I've ever had.

Sounds like she needs to do more "hunting" for better prices so she can at least compete with the other businesses. Otherwise she is sure to fail

She obviously is used to going to the Boston markets in the wee hours since I'm sure she does that for her flower business. That said, her prices SHOULD be lower since it's not costing her much more since she's there anyways. Greed.

Looking forward to stopping by on our next trip to Lunenburg to see the grandkids. No one in Reno sells fresh seafood.....it's all flashfrozen or precooked. Ugh. When there are Maine lobsters or fresh dungeness crabs available, the prices are outlandish. Have to resort to Legal Seafoods for that special occasion New England clambake......yummy! 80 in Reno today with everything in bloom here in the valley with snowcapped mountains all around us. Beautiful.

All seafood is not the same. The crap they sell at S&S is usually been in the boats for 4 to 5 days longer than that the top quality markets, hence the lower prices. The chains buy up whats left at auction after the best fish houses get the best. if you demand high quality and a safe, healthy product, you will have to pay for it.

You probably have more of a chance being waited on by "convicted fellons" at Market Basket then you do at Leominster Seafood. You might have an ax to grind but no reason to slander people.

I never have understood the attraction to SS (other than maybe there was no other fish place around). There is always a line for both the restaurant side and the fresh fish side. The place does look filthy, as others have said (but wouldn't/shouldn’t the board of health or whoever keep an eye on that? scary), and some of the staff is downright rude to customers. The last time my mother-in-law bought fish there a few months ago, she said never again. I am willing to pay a little more for a better product, and will check this new place out.

Conrad's in Lunenburg has the freshest seafood around, absolutely fantastic. I wouldn't even go into SS - the dirt on the windows convinces me to stay away.
