The "difficult" decision to close the Route 17 store in Paramus was made from a financial perspective after a review of store performance, a Stop & Shop communications manager told the news outlet.

The store was an Acme in the 1980s and a Grand Union in the 1990s, before Stop & Shop took over in the early 2000s, according to the Acme Style Blog. 

The borough's Planning Board in 2019 approved a renovation project for the Stop & Shop store -- as well as the KMart store on the property -- which would have included a Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas, Chick-fil-A, and Taco Bell. That never came to fruition.

Another Stop & Shop store is located nearly two miles away in Ridgewood.
