Last Day to Shop at Super Foodtown of Wall is June 10

Conveniently located at 18th Avenue and Route 35 in Wall, this popular grocery shopping destination for Belmar and Lake Como residents will cease operations on June 10.

WALL, NJ — After serving as a popular grocery store for many Belmar and Lake Como residents for the past 43 years, the Super Foodtown of Wall will close its doors on Saturday, June 10.

Parent company Food Circus Super Markets has posted a sign announcing the closing on the front door of the store, located at the intersection of 18th Avenue and Route 35. It cites economic reasons and the changing retail landscape for the decision to shutter the store.

Shoppers are being encourage to frequent its other Super Foodtown, located nearly 3 miles south on Route 35 in Sea Girt “for the freshest meat, perishables and Circus-own(ed) products that you’ve come to love.”

The Wall store’s 75 employees have been offered positions at that store, as well as the chain’s other stores in Atlantic Highlands, Ocean, the Port Monmouth section of Middletown and Red Bank. Owned and operated by the Azzolina and Scaduto families, Middletown-based Food Circus celebrated its 60-year anniversary in 2016.
