MAPLEWOOD/SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — In these ever changingm challenging times, it’s good to know what local businesses are open, closed, or accessible through a website or online live stream. Although this list is large, TAPinto SOMA cannot guarantee it is authoritative: local companies are doing business as they are able, and it is always best to call or check a website when in doubt.
In Maplewood, many Springfield Avenue restaurants, services, and essential retail outlets are still open; the restaurants are, of course, only delivery and carry out. The Springfield Avenue Partnership keeps an updated list on their website.
Their website notes, “We are actively compiling information from Springfield Avenue businesses to keep customers informed of new hours and pick-up or delivery options. Please note this list is a work in progress, and will be continually updated. If you are unsure if a business is open please call ahead.”
In downtown Maplewood, although all non-essential businesses are physically closed, such as Mona Lisa Framing and Village Barbers, some businesses who are able to are going online: Chaise Fitness will live-stream to its Instagram TV channel and Baker Street Yoga is doing class by Zoom. Others, like [words] Bookstore, will deliver online orders. Others, like Retail Therapy, are posting their wares on Facebook. Some have reopened, like Bagel Chateau, which is now doing curbside pickup from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.
The Maplewood Village Alliance continues to update their list of each downtown Maplewood business and their status:
Maplewood Village merchants are working hard to continue to service their customers in these uncertain times.
Below is a list of most of the merchants (food/drink, retail/services and classes/lessons/health and wellness) and a description of how they are currently operating or if they are closed until further notice. Please support them however you can until we’re on the other side of this pandemic.
Until then, be safe, be strong, be healthy! We can’t wait to see you in person again!

South Orange Village Center Alliance keeps an up to date list, and by following their Facebook page, you can find out more. The Local Business page on the South Orange Covid 19 website says:
"Grab a ready-to-go dinner. Live stream your yoga session while your kids take an online guitar lesson. Buy a gift card for a future date. Tag #SOMAopenforbiz when sharing how you are supporting local businesses. Above all, think “local first” when purchasing those essential supplies. It all makes a difference.
Some restaurants, like The Fox and Falcon, are closed entirely. “These are trying times,” owner David Massoni said on the popular restaurant’s outgoing phone message, “but we will get through it, and we will be stronger on the other end.”
Others, like La Villa Mexican and Salvadoran Food, which had the misfortune of opening in the month leading up to the coronavirus crisis, and Bay Leaf — an Indian favorite on South Orange Avenue — had closed and now have reopened for takeout. Bay Leaf also delivers through several delivery apps.
Some businesses, like Sadie's and Kitchen A La Mode, are open online and offer delivery.
