seen this store before. Kind of. I'm glad to be back, because it's a very nice place! The store opened in 2006 in a former Waldbaum's, which had been extensively renovated. Additional renovations took place in 2012 and then again in 2017-18 in anticipation of the ShopRite's opening in a former Key Food.
North Bergen, albeit scaled down slightly to this store's lower ceiling and smaller footprint of 40,000 square feet. You enter to produce, with deli and seafood on the right side wall. Meat is in an island that backs up to the grocery aisles, with dairy and beer on the back wall and frozen foods at the far end of the store. In the image above, we're actually looking towards the side wall of the store with the front wall being to the right. Where the lower ceiling begins was a recent expansion, and I'm not entirely sure what the store's layout would have been before that since deli and seafood are both located in the expansion.
