Clifton, New Jersey
Location: 467 Allwood Rd, Clifton, NJ
The Clifton Acme will be closing in February. While the store's success has been debated on the blog for years, it appeared to be thriving under Albertsons' leadership. This location, among many others, suffered drastically during the SuperValu years. This particular location had become a mess in the late 2000's despite being one of Acme's newest stores. Recent visits here left me extremely impressed with how clean and well stocked the store was with more shoppers roaming the aisles than I had seen in the past. The Clifton Acme was truly getting better! Unfortunately not better enough. Business is apparently not strong enough to make the store profitable. I've been told the store's high rent is a major factor for the closing. For full coverage of the Clifton Acme, please click here.
