Snapshot: Extra Supermarket - Elizabeth, NJ

The Market Report was on the scene almost two years ago to photograph the then-under construction supermarket at the Pointe Grande Plaza at 838 E Grand St, Elizabeth, NJ, and again when its first tenant, Supermarkets Plus IGA opened in May 2017. 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.
Graphics and window signs have been replaced and the storefront is awaiting a lit Extra sign. If you zoom in, you can even see where the Supermarkets Plus sign was.
The bakery, immediately inside to the left, remains empty, but the deli is beginning to be stocked. Meat and produce are partially stocked as well.
The grocery shelves are ready to go, and contain Parade private label products. This means that the new Elizabeth Extra will be under the same management as the locations at Avon Ave in Newark and in Jersey City. Maplewood, Lyons Ave in Newark, and East Orange are run separately and are now supplied by Krasdale Foods.
