Today's three stores are on Somerset Street, and we're here in the first block west of Front Street for our first one! The 3100 square foot store sells grocery items and has a butcher and deli, and it looks quite nice inside although I didn't go in. Front Street is the main street in downtown Plainfield, but if you go just a few doors up Somerset Street you're in North Plainfield (which is a different town but it's also a different county, Somerset instead of Union). So we're doing all three North Plainfield stores at once here -- our other posts today are the Fine Fare at Somerset and Pearl, and the World Supermarket at Somerset and Park. But don't worry, none of them are more than about a quarter of a mile away from Front Street, and we'll be back to Plainfield tomorrow for a greengrocer right here on The Independent Edition!
