Original Tenant: A&P Address: 1491 NJ-23, Wayne, NJ Opened: 1960s Closed: unknown Later Tenants: unknown Photographed: August 2019 We saw the former A&P and its replacement up in the Preakness section of Wayne, today's snapshot is one of the other former A&Ps in Wayne, in the Packanack section. There are at least four -- these three, plus a former Futurestore between the the Preakness and Packanack locations which was likely a replacement for the two older stores. The 17,000 square foot store here was expanded, likely by a later tenant, to 23,500 square feet. I photographed it from the parking lot of the Packanack Wayne Shopping Center directly across the street, which is anchored by a Foodtown residing in a former barrel-roof Food Fair. That wraps up Wayne! Now unfortunately there's no geographically elegant way to do this, so we're just gonna hop across most of Passaic County out to Midland Park in Bergen County, then on to Paramus
Original Tenant: A&P Address: 54 Preakness Shopping Ctr, Wayne, NJ Opened: 1950s Closed: unknown Later Tenants: unknown Photographed: August 2019 Today's snapshot is a 9000 square foot barrel-roof A&P that was expanded to 18,000 square feet and converted to a Centennial model, probably opening in the 1950s and being renovated in the 60s. Half of it has become a CVS, with the other half being a liquor store for many years but now subdivided further. A 25,000 square foot replacement store was constructed in probably the 1970s just across the street. Tomorrow, we have another supermarket on Hamburg Turnpike, which we'll tour over on The Market Report !
