This former ShopRite in Bound Brook is about 21,000 square feet and was replaced in 1998 by the newer store, which we're also touring today. It opened in the 1970s as a replacement for an older store at 260 W Union Ave (and presumably a consolidation of the small store at 84 Main St in South Bound Brook). ShopRite moved in here after the Food Fair that previously occupied the space closed. Tomorrow, we're moving to the west to see our first store in Bridgewater on The Market Report!


  1. Was also Efinger's Sporting Goods before being subdivided by a Dollar General and Goodwill.

  2. Not sure where you heard this was a ShopRite, but from what I'm seeing, this went right from being Food Fair to Efinger's (with maybe a little over a year of vacancy in between). An article from April 1973 announced Efinger's intentions to move there, and that Food Fair closed the previous October. They definitely were open there by September 1974, and remained there until 2016.

    The store at 260 W Union Ave was indeed a ShopRite, which opened in 1956 and closed around 1969-70. It became a Victor's clothing store for a while after that, but interestingly enough, it ended up back in the hands of ShopRite as a liquor store in 1979. That lasted until 1988 when it became Buy Rite.
