It's time for a very quick look at the 41,000 square foot former ACME at the Rockaway Townsquare Mall. This store formed the replacement for both the downtown Dover and downtown Rockaway locations when it opened in 1980 and quickly became one of the highest volume ACMEs in northern New Jersey, being remodeled several times and finally closing in 2010. Nordstrom Rack opened up shop here around 2015, but if you want to check out a lot more information on the store along with pre- and post-closure pictures, see Acme Style's 2010 posts here! We also have a look at the ShopRite just over the border into Wharton at the other side of the Rockaway Townsquare Mall today, and tomorrow, we're taking a look at a former supermarket just north of route 80 here on Grocery Archaeology. Come back to check it out!
