You're kidding right?


Key Foods, Shop Rite, Tender Shoot, that friendly Korean grocer on Bay Street, the place across from La Conguita....

downtown is hardly the Sahara.


For whatever reason, there is this misconception that DTJC is a grocery store dessert, but that is way, way off. In addition to Shoprite and BJs, there is the Conga Supermarket (which is surprisingly vast in its stock, and available produce) plus the various small Korean grocers, and there is also that new organic place over Union Republic, Subia's, and not too far from DTJC there is Hudson Greene Market in PH and Morton Williams in Newport.

I don't know how big the old Pathmark was but they usually open large stores, think Asian Food with a restaurant.
Their stores in CA are huge they are also opening a store in Hackensack.

Not true, unless you are talking about distance as the crow flies. The distance from Grove Street PATH station to Old Colony is just shy of a mile, which is why people are not going to be walking all the way there to then back track. Google Maps walking directions.

Hopefully whatever finally gets built there will be an asset to the neighborhood.

They just reinforced the balconys maybe they will reface them eventually. Old colony shopping center is 1/2 mile from the Grove St path. Hardly unwalkable. Hopefully whatever finally gets built there will be an asset to the neighborhood. As for liberty harbor I would not hold your breath. There is still nothing happening at the tilted kilt spot or the retail space under gulls cove that was to be Sawa

From what I've heard, the building that's part of Liberty Harbor North that's going up at Jersey and Grand (across the street from Brownstone Diner) is supposed to have 20k retail square footage and some sort of upscale grocery store was planned - there could be room for a Trader Joe's. Anybody hear any updates on what's ultimately planned for that building?

We've also got the Sunac Natural Market coming in at 70 Columbus and (hopefully) 99 Ranch is still planned to open up where the Pathmark was.

I really hope this summer brings an end to downtown being a grocery desert for those that don't own a car.

Completely agree about Metropolis Towers - a horrible eyesore. Unfortunately, the renderings appear to show the towers in the background, so I don't think they're going anywhere.

Whole Foods is coming to Jersey City.

The upscale supermarket announced this afternoon that it will open a market near the Grove Street PATH station in 2020.

Plans are for a 45,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market on the site of Metropolis Towers, at Columbus Drive and Marin Boulevard. That's more than twice the size of the Whole Foods in Montclair, one of Whole Foods' 15 New Jersey locations.

IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT


PK has Loquats. Abort construction of the Whole Foods. I repeat, PK is selling Loquats.

You snooze, you lose, WF.

Lame, once again dissing the real parts of JC




"Yes, let's forego profits in order to appear real to iGreg"

- said no successful business person, ever

I agree with the argument that having it closer to a larger percentage of potential shoppers is a better plan, we're talking about Whole Foods and the fact that those wishing to shop there would most certainly make the schlep up the hill if it were placed in JSQ. I don't believe they'd lose any profits.

The whole point is moot though since they are going to be at Grove St.

Not to mention that a large draw of WF locations in urban areas is their accessibility for those on foot. Old Colony is a good location for people with cars, but too far for the masses that rely on PATH. Not a whole lot of people would like to walk all the way to Old Colony and then back track. By choosing the area right outside of the Grove Street PATH plaza, they are being smart: they will get a lot of foot traffic from commuters coming home after work, but will also capture customers who may be heading out of JC by car. Check out any WF or TJ location that is close to subway and PATH stations around 5 - 6 PM and you will be faced with long lines. As with real estate: location, location, location.

They have a consumption license to sell wine and beer in Vauxhall in the restaurant attached, they don't sell wine, beer, or liquors in the supermarket.

Well, maybe somebody should look into that.

33:1-12.31. Acquisition of beneficial interest in more than two retail licenses prohibited
On and after the effective date of this act no person, as the same is defined in R.S. 33:1-1, shall, except as hereinafter provided, acquire a beneficial interest in more than a total of two alcoholic beverage retail licenses, but nothing herein shall require any such person who has, on August 3, 1962, such an interest in more than two such licenses to surrender, dispose of, or release his interest in any such license or licenses.

Well I think that's why it is where it is. So a shitload of people are within a 10 minute walk of it, and another shitload of people can access it by Path train (from JSQ mostly).
