Question for any South Jersey people: I'm planning on taking a bit of a retail road trip sometime in the next couple weeks, ideally going through the south of the state and ending in Atlantic City. Are there any must-see stores out there? I'm going to try to see the ACME's in Mapleshade, Egg Harbor, and Woodstown, along with the former Bradlee's in Bordentown, and the Shore Mall in Egg Harbor City. That's probably a lot to attempt in one day, but I'd love to see as much as possible!
If you're heading to Maple Shade, you should try to check out the ACME in Haddonfield.
I would suggest coming to my neck of the woods, The former genuardi's turned acme in barnegat (hour north of atlantic city by taking the garden state parkway)still has some of genuardi's stuff like layout. also the acme in manahawkin may or may not still have the 90s a&p decor from it superfresh days. But I galad to hear your coming to south jeresy we have alot of cool retail stuff
The Clayton ACME is a surviving pitched roof store. But it might be a little out of the way. It's well worth it, however.

I think you would want to go to Westmont and Haddonfield if you can
Snyder Plaza opens this Friday, September 8.
Went to the new Acme on Snyder that opened today. Beautiful store! The aisles are a little on the tight side tho. It is nearly impossible for 2 carts to fit side by side in an aisle. The Frosted Mug and Starbucks are in their own area off of the front of the produce department. And the produce department in this store is quite large and has a large organic selection. The best thing of all, the store has self checkouts! It's a unique store, and Acme did an excellent job! They also had some excellent grand opening deals, like a pack of 30 eggs for 99 cents.
This is bad news, but not surprising. The Bergenfield Acme (former Pathmark) is closing November 7th.http://www.ufcw1262.org/new-acme-closing-its-bergenfield-store-on-nov-7/
I'll post the news tomorrow. I'll let Front and Snyder have it's moment before news of a store closing goes up.
Good choice. Front and Snyder looks beautiful! I really like the exterior, it's much more modern and interesting than what most supermarkets around here are doing now
What was the thing covered by the red banner on the left exterior side of the store? Do you have any pictures?
Acme in St Michaels Md is closing Oct 8.
The abandoned Woodstown store was demolished. Looks like they're building houses on the site.
Update on the 40th and Walnut situation:http://www.thedp.com/article/2017/09/fresh-grocer-was-told-to-vacate-months-ago-but-now-they-may-be-staying-until-2018The legal battle continues....
No more Red/White/Blue decor remaining in any Acme stores, as far as I know. Acme on Oxford Ave. and the Clifton Heights location, got the same remodel, the cheap PF&H 3.0 renovation. Does anyone know if there's any more RWB stores out there?
I think they are finally starting to make some progress on the front end. I was at the Phoenixville Acme this morning and as soon as lines started forming registers were quickly opening up. 8 registers were open and the 4 self checkouts. However, that came at a price because there were no carts at all for incoming customers, and all of the cart drop offs in the parking lot were overloaded with carts. Even in King of Prussia yesterday almost every register was open and no long lines! Now this is amazing for this store.
I just noticed that SuperValu is now supplying CTown Stores with their Wild Harvest products and I looked online and saw the Wild Harvest logo on the bottom of their website. I don't know if it's all Krasdale or just CTown
It's all Krasdale. Supervalu also supplies the Equaline brand of HABA to Krasdale stores.
Oh fun, SuperValu seems to be doing good business these days, with Krasdale, America's Food Basket ad all these other stores. Good for them, I'm happy as long as they aren't running Acme to the death again
I decided to stop in the Ideal Marketplace store that took over the old Botany Plaza Pathmark. What struck me is that there was a LOT of Essential Everyday products there. Did Acme sell them off to other stores?
SuperValu supplies the company that runs them
SuperValu owns and distributes Essential Everyday. They also owned and nearly ruined Acme.
