The new store is expected to open in October, although an exact date has not been released.

Bridgewater Township confirmed in May that the store would be opening, after planning board approval was granted in December to make changes to the property to make it a grocery store. The property will also include extra square footage from the adjacent Old Navy, for a total of 13,600 square feet.

Speculation ran wild for months that it would be a Trader Joe's before word was officially given.
