Supermarkets Returning to Former Pathmark Spaces in Irvington and Belleville

Irvington, New Jersey: Supermarkets are returning to two Essex County townships. 

Pathmark's locations at 115 Belmont Avenue in Belleville's Silver Lake section and 471 Lyons Avenue in Irvington closed in 2015 when parent company A&P filed for bankruptcy. The Belleville space, located just down the street from the Silver Lake Station on the Newark Light Rail, and the Irvington space, located near Route 78, had been vacant since the Pathmark stores closed. 

Now, new supermarkets will occupy the spaces. According to the company website, Key Food is opening a SuperFresh Food World location in the Belleville space. In addition, the Irvington space will be occupied by a SuperFresh. 

The SuperFresh name was purchased from A&P by Key Food in February, according to Supermarket News. 

Last month, a SuperFresh Food World store opened in the former A&P space at 19 Belleville Avenue in Bloomfield, and Fine Fare is currently operating a market in the former Food Basics space on Main Street in Belleville. The former Pathmark location at the corner of South Orange Avenue and Bergen Street in Newark still remains vacant. 

An employee of the Bloomfield location told Essex County Place that the Belleville store will open on July 1st.

UPDATE: The SuperFresh locations have opened in Belleville and Irvington.
