The store was officially out of business by late July 2018 and was quickly replaced by Extra Supermarkets, a five-store chain. Extra did not do any renovations, really -- what is there to do to a new-build store not even a year and a half old? -- but is currently in the process of stocking the shelves and will probably open within the next week.
Maplewood, Lyons Ave in Newark, and East Orange are run separately and are now supplied by Krasdale Foods.
