It seems like for every store that opens in our area, at least two close. After a spate of grocery store closures in the last few years, another long time supermarket is shuttering for good.

After the Foodtown in Bayville closed in 2012, and the one in the Kohl's Plaza in Toms River closed in 2015, the Super Foodtown on Route 35 in Wall just announced that they will be ceasing operations in the coming weeks.

Our sister station, 94.3 The Point reports that a sign on the door informs shoppers:

“To Our Valued Customers: After 43 years of serving this community it is with regret we announce the closing of this location effective June 10th, 2017. We very much appreciate your support and loyalty. We welcome you to shop at our Super Foodtown of Sea Girt location at 2204 Hwy. 35 and Sea Girt Avenue for the freshest meat, perishables, and Circus Own products that you’ve come to love!”

In addition to the Foodtown closures, A&P and PathMark stores throughout the shore have closed in the last few years, as well.
