Home Discount Center Opens in Downtown Newark

Newark, New Jersey: A new business is now open in a historic building in Downtown Center. Home Discount Center's Newark location opened recently at 768 Broad Street, between Market Street and Clinton Street. The storefront was previously occupied by the Wee Bee Kids children's clothing store and a location of the regional Danice clothing store chain. Home Discount Center has other locations in Orange and Hackensack, Bergen County. A variety of carpets, toys, and bed, bath, and kitchen items are sold. The building was once the headquarters of the Howard Savings Bank, and was built in 1899 by George B. Post to look like a Greek temple. It is known for the limestone lions' heads atop the building.
