Hi, This was a small regional chain that I remember as a kid in North Jersey. The origins had some thing to do with management from Penn Fruit. The stores they had in Bergen County were in Paramus. River Edge( was a Shop Rite for many years afterward), New Milford ( purchased by its Deli manager and ran as an Italian American Grocery store for many years) and Hackensack as well as other places I simply can!t recall. They were supermarkets that were known for good deli and produce departments. Why they closed I am not sure but they were serious for some time .
I guess Shop Rite and Pathmark did them in.

My father owned them. The first was in Teaneck. Do you have any idea when it closed? He was wiped out by larger chains.
