Big Nick's 99 Cent Discount 1669 Bath Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11214-4509
It’s the middle of the day, you’re hungry, but you don’t feel like pizza or Chinese food… Where do you go in Bath Beach? Nick’s Discount Store! No, I’m not crazy, this guy has everything! Go in and ask for a “Big Nicky’s $5.50 special” which consists of any kind of hero sandwich you want (Boars Head cold cuts, meatballs, Chicken Parmesan, etc), a soda and a bag of chips!

You’re not going to find a place that sells a gallon of milk for $2.69 that easy, unless you come here. From cookies, ice cream and Italian bread to stationary, tools, household items and cleaner Nicky has been a fixture in The Bath Beach area for many years. Everyone comes here from the neighborhood. If you haven’t been to Nick’s Discount store, you don’t live here!
It’s amazing how he knows almost everyone’s name that comes through the door, young and old. Nicky gives out candy in front of his store every Halloween to the neighborhood children (And adults), hot dogs and potato salad on The Fourth of July and makes his good friend Eugene (A well known neighborhood guy) dress up as Santa Clause for the Christmas season.
Usually there’s a conversation about sports, a current event or what’s new in the neighborhood going on anytime you walk in. Some people stay and never want to leave! Not only do you get really good deals here, you get a sense of what Bath Beach is all about. Nicky lets you know it’s all about good food, good discounts and the most important thing, good people.
So drop by sometime, grab a cup of coffee and say hello. You’ll be glad you did!
