We are on the north end of Somerset, New Jersey for a look at this 9300 square foot Indian supermarket right on the Raritan River! (We were previously about four miles to the southeast for a Stop & Shop, a Tropical Supermarket, and a Fine Fare.) Now above, we see the new facade installed on the store. But the store itself dates back to the 1960s, and by zooming out a little we can get a good idea of what it used to be...
Certainly a beautiful remodel of an A&P centennial! The building is just over 18,000 square feet, meaning that Star Bazaar takes up a little more than half of the space.
Star Bazaar opened in 2016, making it pretty new. It's very nice inside, and spotlessly clean! The store includes eight aisles plus the produce department.
The floor looks great! It's the first thing you notice. Very clean. By the way, the A&P space became a Drug Fair and was subsequently divided in half. The other half is now a liquor store.
We have one more Somerset store, just to the west, tomorrow on The Market Report. Stay tuned!
