Trader Joe's Opened: ca. 2011 Previous Tenants: none Location: 259 Allwood Rd, Clifton, NJ Photographed: March 2019 This 12,000 square foot Trader Joe's opened as part of a new-build mall along Allwood Road around 2011, just under two miles from yesterday's Stop & Shop . It's also less than half a mile from the Clifton Commons Stop & Shop and, in the other direction, the former Clifton ACME . Many people are familiar with the quirky upscale-with-a-sense-of-humor retailer Trader Joe's, but if not, we'll be touring one down in Union County not too far in the future. Stay tuned! For now, though, we're heading into Passaic, just to the east, for an in-depth look at the grocery stores downtown over the next approximately two weeks. We're going to make a circuit through the city from west to east, starting with a store tour tomorrow on The Independent Edition !
