Location: 1 Route 37, Toms River NJ
Once a free-standing store, now surrounded by a strip mall. The Toms River Acme opened in December 1954. Closing date unknown. It may have been gone by the early 70's.
Close-up of the Acme now split into 2 smaller stores. While I don't have 100% confirmation that this building was the Acme, the historical aerial photos offer proof that this is the case.
The awnings over the back delivery doors were pretty standard on this era of Acme.

Acme opened in 1954 and as of 1956, it remained the only building on the property.
Stores added to the left side of the Acme.
Massive buildings added to the right side with an alley between the Acme building and the new section. The building to the rear, which can be seen more clearly below, is currently a Super Foodtown.
Booming shopping center in the 80's. I'm guessing the Acme was long gone by this point.
Interesting the Acme gave up on this area of the Jersey Shore. The Seaside Heights, which was closed as of 1986, was exactly due west of the the Toms River store.
