Yesterday we saw the ShopRite on River Road here in Fair Lawn, which outlasted this 53,000 square foot store. Closing in A&P's final bankruptcy of 2015-16, the store was later announced to be the future location of the ShopRite of Fair Lawn. As we can see, little progress had been made on the property as of December 2020.
Unfortunately, all our pictures are going to have to be from here across the street because the entire property and its sidewalk were fully snow-covered and the property was also completely fenced-off. The signs remain, having been painted over in black...
Interestingly, we can just barely make out the outline of the Pathmark stripe and the word "super" under the black paint in this picture, something that was invisible to me in person. Or maybe I just need new glasses.
Plenty of labelscars to see here on the storefront, too! Pharmacy, Pathmark, and Super Center all clearly readable despite all the signs having been removed, probably years ago. The store will be expanded by about 20,000 square feet before ShopRite opens up here.
It seems an outparcel building is under construction here at this end of the property. There is already an outparcel building just to the left of where this is being built, and it's hard to tell whether the building will be kept or demolished. All the businesses in it are closed.
That's all for this location! Maybe someday we'll get to cover the closed ShopRite on River Road here on Grocery Archaeology and the new ShopRite on this property on The Market Report, but for now, this is what we've got. Up next, we're going to jump into the city of Paterson just across the river starting with a supermarket at the northern end of the city over on The Market Report tomorrow!
