Elizabeth, NJ location. However, Garwood is a far more upscale town than nearby Elizabeth and the competition is a Pathmark-turned-failed Food Emporium and a Kings.
heavy promotion of the parking lot for the Food Emporium.)
The layout is pretty simple. The store's side faces the street, and the front faces the parking lot. It's deeper than it is wide, so the first aisle is produce and lining the right-side wall, bakery, seafood, and prepared foods with deli and meat at the back of the grand aisle. Meats run along the back wall and dairy is in the last aisle. The photos here were from my visit in August of 2017.
Village Food Garden, is the prepared foods department. Village Food Garden is the very upscale food-court brand for Village, but some stores also have Bistro Streets and others have ShopRite Kitchens, a cooperative-wide brand.
Airmont ShopRite, they're open cases with doors added. Everyone should be doing this! I do wish there was something on that blank wall to the right.
