Photographed: January 12, 2024four miles northeast. This store was renovated and had its grand reopening in the fall of 2023, but I just don't like Jersey City that much and don't go there very often so I didn't get to check it out until recently. The biggest improvement? The obvious Pathmark stripe remnant is finally gone from the storefront...

my original pictures, which I took way back in 2016. The store looks good, but it's obvious this was a pretty minimal renovation. That said, many of the fixtures were replaced, such as most of these in the produce department. The flooring in produce was replaced, too.
Back over into the right side of the store, we see the combined seafood and meat counter at the back of the produce aisle.
is planned for just across route 440. Although they're close together, route 440 is very difficult to cross for those who aren't driving -- and really annoying to drive on, while we're at it.
ShopRite opened in Sussex (a very nice store that I have yet to visit), the ACME across the highway was set to close. It's been a few months since ShopRite opened and the ACME doesn't seem to be closing (yet?). It looks like it received the Quality Built renovation in early 2023. We'll see what happens to that store and this store, especially once the ShopRite here opens -- which probably won't be for another few years.
This store looks really good, but it's still -- like most ACMEs -- not a particularly exceptional supermarket. It's definitely solid, but the new Inserra ShopRites (and I assume the new Jersey City store will be Inserra-owned) are much more impressive. We'll see how this and the Sussex store fare! That's not all for today---check in on a ShopRite not too far away here. And it's back to Rockland County on Monday!
