Weis Markets (2008-2018)Photographed:
January 15, 2021
Today's post is a quick look inside a former Weis, originally a Mr. Z's (see here
for some background). The 30,000 square foot store made it to 2018 but some combination of its poor location and the opening of a Price Chopper
close by probably led to this store's demise.
I was here not too long after it closed, and it seemed there was still quite a bit inside the store although key fixtures had been removed and likely repurposed elsewhere.
We can't get too good a look inside, but this is what we'd see if we entered the foyer. It looks like we're looking at the customer service counter.
And this area was likely where the registers were, given the marks on the flooring.
Although a few Weis locations have closed in and around Stroudsburg, there's still one each in Stroudsburg and East Stroudsburg. We'll be taking a quick look at each of those, plus some others in the surrounding areas.
The exit doors, looking in to where the registers were. Unfortunately, we can't see a whole lot else inside.
A peek at the inside of a few of the doors that have been boarded up reveals some Weis signage still around, along with a notice of the store's closure. Tomorrow, we're checking out another former Mr. Z's just to the west of here, right here on Grocery Archaeology!
