Original Tenant: Big C Department Store
Address: 2465 S Broad St, Hamilton, NJ
Later Tenants: Davidson Foodtown (1989-1999) > SuperFresh (1999-2010) > subdivided
Photographed: January 20212130 S Broad, which closed in the 1970s. This 62,000 square foot store opened in the 1970s as a Big C department store before becoming a Davidson Foodtown in 1989, which then sold to SuperFresh in 1999. It's unclear if the Davidsons who owned this Foodtown were the same Davidsons who owned the New Brunswick locations on George St (later CTown and now Bravo) and Elizabeth St (later Estevez Foodtown and now Food Universe).
The space has been subdivided, with Ollie's Bargain Outlet (good stuff cheap!) taking the right half and a gym taking the left half. There's still a supermarket at Independence Plaza, though, as a Save-A-Lot has opened up in the front part of the mall closest to Broad St. Tomorrow, we move to the eastern border of Hamilton Township for a tour at the township's second ShopRite. Check it out tomorrow on The Market Report!
