Original Tenant: ACME Markets
Address: 225 Bloomfield Ave, Verona, NJ
Later Tenants: DeCozen Chrysler Jeep Dodge
Photographed: December 2018
Today's snapshot is a quick look at one of the few former pitched-roof ACME locations in northern NJ, along with Garfield that we saw a short time back here and here. Today, the building is obscured by the new facade installed by current tenant, DeCozen Chrysler Jeep Dodge. If I'm not mistaken, the 17,000 square foot building was also previously a food importer's warehouse. Today, the pitched-roof is beautifully exposed inside and looking great! For what it's worth, a pitched-roof ACME in Nanticoke, PA, also was converted to a car dealership building. And Verona is currently served by a Kings residing in a former Pantry Pride. We will be making a brief detour off of Bloomfield Avenue to the south to West Orange tomorrow on The Market Report. Stay tuned!
Just FYI - looking at maps the PA building looks empty now as that post is 11+ years old (but still with the Ford dealer sign), though one of the maps indicated Dollar General and a fitness place so the photos may just be out of date.ReplyDelete
Yeah, it looks like either the Dollar General or the gym moved into the ACME building, and the other was built right next door. Good to see the structure still in use and lively, though!Delete
