Can Stew Leonard’s save declining Paramus Park Mall?


PARAMUS, NJ - It is no secret that the retail industry has seen a decrease in shoppers over the past year which has caused many stores to close their doors. This decline hit home when Sears was forced to close in February after 44 years in Paramus. The effects the closing of such a power house like Sears could be detrimental to Paramus Park which has seen a drastic decline in the number of shoppers as of late. As the saying goes “as one door closes, another one opens” and that is the case for Paramus Park. With an approval from the zoning board of adjustment, Stew Leonard’s will be set to open their doors in early 2019.









The Stew Leonard’s dairy farm themed supermarket has the opportunity to revive a dying mall. With parking lots empty and shoppers close to nonexistent, Stew Leonard’s can put Paramus Park back on the map. Paramus Park has been tested and has proved able of handling holiday traffic and large volumes of shoppers since 1974. Why would Stew Leonard’s be any different?

The new Paramus location will be the first New Jersey based location for the supermarket chain, which seems to be a reoccurring theme for many new businesses making Paramus their home. Paramus is a community that has all the tools a business needs to be successful and thrive for many years.

Home to stores such as GAP, Champs, L.L. Bean and many other big-name retailers, Paramus Park has the opportunity to become more than just another mall overshadowed by the Garden State Plaza. With close to 4,500 parking spaces and access to NJ Transit, Paramus Park’s unused parking space seems much more than adequate to handle the much-needed spike in shoppers that Stew Leonard’s will bring along and inject fresh air into the nearly 45-year-old shopping mall.

Along with Stew Leonard’s, Paramus Park is planning on welcoming a high end 12 screen movie theater on the second floor of the old Sears location. The addition of both the movie theater and supermarket is sure to spark the illustrious shopping mall.
