A quick look at the former ACME just across the highway from today's other post, Garden Farm. Acme Style covered this store along with the existing Old Bridge ACME here (and see my post of the current Old Bridge ACME here). It's worth noting that the existing ACME was an A&P until 2015, so that was not a replacement for this store which probably closed by the 90s. The facade on the 20,500 square foot store hides the pitched roof, which is also hidden in the back...
Very clearly a former supermarket. Tomorrow, we'll be touring our next store just to the north along US-9 on The Market Report!


  1. I believe that this store closed around 1980. I remember driving by as a kid and it looking very much like an abandoned Acme.

  2. Perhaps a time when they were closing stores in the general area, as you also have that old one over on 18 (technically East Brunswick, in the front of the plaza that now has ShopRite) that was not replaced either. Seem to remember reading that they had a time when they were pulling out of some areas.

    1. Oh, that's true. Possibly trying to get out of the way of the inland Saker ShopRites, while the shore locations seem to do alright.
