New Grocery Store Coming To Fairfield Shopping Center?

Newark – Rumors about a new Fairfield Shopping Center grocery store have been swirling around social media for the last several weeks.

In mid-February one of the businesses located in the Fairfield Shopping Center reportedly called Della Donne, the property management company, to inquire about the fate of the shopping center, according to social media reports.

The post said that the business was told that a grocery store will be replacing the Super Fresh and that an announcement was set for the end of the month.  Well it’s four days into the new month and no announcement?

Although residents are hoping for the likes of a Trader Joes,  a Zingo’s or an Aldi to fill the old Super Fresh location, it’s more likely that a Food Lion is in the works, according to several merchants in the strip mall. One merchant adding that she thinks that the new grocery store will be larger than the Super Fresh footprint.

Another merchant said that he heard that the old PNC is to reopen as a Dunkin Donuts.

Although nothing official has been announced the store merchants seem to think that the Food Lion and Dunkin Donuts are a go.

When Super Fresh closed it’s doors in late 2015 residents that live near the Fairfield Shopping Center found themselves without a neighborhood grocery store. They will likely be very happy if the rumors are true.
