And, the one on Columbus Circle is in the basement of The Shops at Columbus Circle.

The one at Menlo Park is also attached to the Mall.

I'm told the WF in Paramus is inside a mall.

Morton Williams validates parking. WF might do the same though parking is only expensive for long stays to discourage commuters.

the parking fees are in reality negligible, the rates are

1 Hour $ 2.00
2 Hours $ 2.25
3 Hours $ 3.50
4 Hours $ 5.50

showing your ID with a Jersey City address lowers it by $1.

I feel extremely skeptical of this claim.

WF is JC's Unicorn.

But the parking there is really quite pricey. I can't justify paying for parking to buy groceries. :( I was really impressed by claims in the Cheesecake Factory post that the Newport location was the third highest grossing restaurant already--every time I've asked my friends to go there, they've proposed another Cheesecake location because they didn't want to pay $10+ for parking.

That space is not nearly as big as some people seem to think it is... It totals about 14,000 sf. Good luck trying to fit a "big grocery retailer" into a space of that size. The average WF is 50,000 to 70,000 sf. The upcoming BK Wegmans weighs in at 74,000 sf, and that's already one third smaller than their average store. In fact, the average grocery store takes up about 50,000 sf. The only viable store that could fit into that space would be a TJ. Their average store is about 12,000 sf.

Why is there so little love and yearning for a Fairway, a store with urban origins, and an understanding of city shopping? I loved the one on 133rd. Is it so few people here have shopped at one, or didn't like it? The Paramus one had far more "center aisle" canned and dry goods than the Harlem store which was more focused on perishables.


I would take Fairway over anything else.

That may be OK for a specialty goods place like TJ's, but some of us don't work in Manhattan, nor shop so small that we would want to carry it that far. Same goes for WF, no?


Agreed. I only mentioned that location because I have found that many people don't seem to know/realize that a Fairway is located there. That makes sense, since it only opened about two years ago.

I think you may have mentioned this before. Fairway is nice, but I never felt they had good prices (in fact, I find their prices to be on par with WF in many items) but they do have urban origins and they know how to stock a store with a small footprint with all the necessities. I have always found their produce to be great, as well. I doubt they will expand into JC... Their location on 6th and 25th is a short PATH ride away.

The above paragraph was taken from an article in the NYT about the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Maybe Wegman's is seeking urban locations.


A little late to the party with this tidbit. The supermarket Wegmans is opening at the Brooklyn Navy Yard is anything but urban style. For starters, it is HUGE, and not too far off from the typical size they build. Secondly, they placed it in an area that will require you to drive out there, and a fairly large sized parking lot is part of the overall project. Wegmans has looked into potentially building smaller stores to go into urban areas, but it just doesn't fit their style and overall strategy. In short, you will never see a Wegmans in JC. We just don't have the space required for the place they would want to build.

There are several parking garages dotted around the area but you are going to pay premium prices.


Driving into the city for whole Foods is nuts. You are better off taking the path and walking.



When I first became a Greenvillian I would drive to the Trader Joes in Brooklyn.. OMG that lasted for about a month and got old fast. We would have to park at least 8 blocks away from the store just to find parking. I think Supermarkets like this in New Jersey will only work with parking.

Build it and they will come in droves.



The area around 14th street is exponentially more dense than by JSQ (both in terms of overall people and particularly WF's target demographic). Not to mention it is much, much better served by public transit than JSQ.

I bet they will have sizeable parking. A better comparison is their Newark location, which does have a large parking garage.
