Fairway to build first market in New Jersey
PARAMUS, N.J.--Fairway Market announced this week that is opening its fifth specialty grocery store here next year.
The 50,000-square-foot store will be built from the ground up in the Fashion Center on Route 17. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer, according to a company statement, with an anticipated opening date in June 2008. Fairway is developing and constructing the site in-house. Retailers Lord & Taylor and Best Buy anchor the new site.
We've been looking for the ideal location for a new Fairway and now we've found it," said Howie Glickberg, owner. "Our hope is to make Fairway as iconic a supermarket in New Jersey as it is in New York."
Fairway has a large selection of fish, meats, baked goods, fruit, vegetables, cheeses, coffees, gourmet and organic foods. Prices are competitive because Fairway buys directly from farmers and producers. Fairway is known for stocking hard-to-find specialty items such as French garlic, sweet onions, roasted almond oil, gray shallots, sherry vinegar and organic Australian beef.
