In 2019, the 20,000 square foot ALDI in Hazlet moved across the street into 24,000 square feet of a former Pathmark. Since there is room to expand in this space, I assume the move was more about location in the newly renovated Hazlet Town Center and moving out of the Hazlet Plaza whose anchor, Toys R Us, had just closed. (It's since become a Harbor Freight Tools and a Goodwill.)
After ALDI and Toys R Us moved out, the strip mall was remodeled. The inside of the former ALDI was also cleared out, though some parts remain. Here we can see the former entrance/exit.
ALDI decals remain on the entrance doors.
We can see the ALDI in progress of being cleared out. It's possible some of the fixtures from this store, which was not that old, were brought over to the new store.
Carts seem to have wandered over from the Walgreens at the other end of the mall...
The front corner of the store seems to have been more extensively stripped of its ALDI characteristics...
One more thing before we move on... check out these building plans and renderings on the work table just inside the windows!
Yep, looks about right! Tomorrow we're moving on to our final Hazlet stop, just to the east on 35, over on The Market Report!
