Truck Parts Store Opens on Route 21

Newark, New Jersey: A store selling truck parts has opened to drivers in Newark's East Ward, which is one of the largest bases of New Jersey's trucking industry. Rodriguez Distribution opened at the end of December at 605 Route 21/McCarter Highway, between Cottage Street and Mulberry Place. Batteries, brakes, wipers, and other items are sold. A similar retailer, C&C Heavy Duty Truck Parts, previously operated at the site. The entrance to the complex, which also contains a car repair business, is notable because it is one of the last brick streets in Essex County.
