Now, if only there was a city named "New Jersey" in New Brunswick...

Hey Groceteria - I see just a couple of edits you might want to make to your (otherwise very cool) New Brunswick list.

- 20 Elizabeth St is currently a Food Universe Marketplace, a banner of Key Food which is a cooperative based in Matawan, NJ. In 2021, the owners of the Foodtown sold it to the store manager and he converted it to Food Universe.

- 275 George St was a CTown until 2011 (though I will say it doesn't exactly look open in the August 2007 street view...) and in 2011, it was converted to Bravo with a renovation. CTown and Bravo are both part of the same cooperative, Krasdale Foods. When I visited in the summer of 2020, there was a sign on the outside saying "Available - Redevelopment" but I haven't heard anything further.

- Not exactly a place to put this, but 710 Somerset St (which is sometimes referred to as Franklin or Somerset, but that is across route 27) was a Met Foodmarket in 1976-77. It was apparently a poorly run store, which closed very shortly after opening.

Thanks for putting this together, and always fun to see cities I recognize!
