I knew this 24,000 square foot space was a 1970s-era ACME, tucked away in the back of the Yorktowne Center in Manalapan, but I found while researching for the West Long Branch post that it had later become a Rex-Gene Food Warehouse and then a Western Beef (very briefly) before being subdivided into multiple spaces including a gym, as we see here. Check out the West Long Branch for more background on Rex-Gene and Western Beef. Make sure to see today's other post at the other end of the mall, Buddy's Marketplace, over on The Independent Edition. Tomorrow we're heading back over to route 9 to check out two more stores just to the north -- again, one here and one on The Independent Edition!


  1. This was the Acme that I worked at. Opened around 1973, closed in 1995. Acme wanted to do a short term lease in 1995, but Rex Gene was signing a 25 year lease, so Acme closed.

    1. I don't think that this was subdivided.

      I think that the gym is the entire Acme.

    2. Thanks for the specifics here! Looking at it again, you're right -- the space was not subdivided.

  2. I have pictures of this store from before the shopping center was remodeled from around 2010. Interested?

    1. Yes!! I'd love to see them, and if you're okay with me posting them here too, let me know how you'd like to be credited. You can email me at Thanks!
