If you haven`t had a sandwhich from The Grocery Stretcher - New in downtown Bradford, you haven`t really lived, friend. Their fresh sliced meats on super fresh bread, fancy cheese and a little magic makes for a sandwhich that makes you say, "that`s the best sandwhich I`ve had in a long time." The deli is located inside the old-fashioned grocery store with discounted items and the best hydroponic lettuce you`ll ever eat.
