Newark Welcomes First Supermarket In Over 20 Years

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — For the first time in over two decades a new supermarket has opening in Newark’s Central Ward.

Mayor Cory Booker was on hand Tuesday morning for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Food Depot on First Street.

The 31,000-square-foot store will not only give neighborhood residents another place to shot but it is also expected to provide about 100 permanent jobs.

Booker said the supermarket is part of a wider initiative to combat so-called “food deserts” – which are areas where options to buy affordable and healthy fresh foods are limited.

    I’ll give it three to six months before it files for bankruptcy, due to shoplifters and employees passing goods out the back door!
