Former Jersey Shore Acme, Pleasantville NJ

Location: 700 Black Horse Pike, Pleasantville NJ 

The former Acme is the last building to the right, Opened in October 1957. The center store in the angled section to the left may have been a grocery store as well. The relatively small Big Kmart all the way to left had arrived by 1970.

Today the building is some kind of recreation center. The Mays Landing store is 7.5 miles east on Black Horse Pike.

The delivery bay was probably added on years after the building's original construction.

The only remaining Acme in the area is the relatively new Brigatine store, which is just North of Atlantic City. As mentioned above, the Mays Landing store is about 10 minutes west on Black Horse Pike.  


  1. The Pleasantville Acme closed sometime in the early 90's. I'm not 100% certain but it might have had the fish-eyed logo to the end. Aldi moved in years later but it didn't last too long. The K-Mart was a former Woolco.

  2. From what I've read the building to the left that's angled was apparently a Woolworth, which was later replaced by the Woolco behind it. There was also an Eckerd in the shopping center that moved in the late 90s/ early 00s.
