What Should Replace Morris Plains ShopRite?

The new Cedar Knolls store has usurped the long-standing supermarket and we want to know what you want to fill the void.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably noticed the immense new ShopRite that sprung up on Hanover Avenue in Cedar Knolls last month.

While the new store is proving incredibly popular with area residents, it has caused one casualty by existing: the Morris Plains ShopRite.

With that space in the route 10 shopping plaza now empty, we want to know what business you would like to see occupy the space.

Do you want Kohl's to expand? A specialty food store to move in? Relocate the closed Dunkin' Donuts to larger digs? What ideas do you have for the spot? Share them in our comments below.

How about a movie theater or bowling alley?

Trader Joe's

Another food store, seniors who use public or government provided transportation used the entire mall when dropped off for food shopping, that is no longer available in our town. With the real possibility that Foodtown will move out to Rt 10, MC Mall will not be an option either.

maybe Two Guys can re-open...

1. Trader Joes 2. Flea Market. 3. Dollar Store.

We really need a fabric store in this area... Trader Joe's would be great, too... Why not both ?
Michael December 06, 2013 at 02:34 PM
I would go along with bowling alley, or Trader Joe's

There wasn't a Two Guys here, (that was on Rt. 46 in Rockaway). It used to be FMC (Farmers Market Cooperative) in this spot in the late 1960's. There is already a Dunkin Donuts just west of there, and since AMC is back in Headquarter's Plaza, we're not desperate for another Movie Theater. The A&P that is moving out of Washington Street in Morristown should move in here. I *really* wish the Chevy's Fresh Mex would reopen across the street.

I would like to see Christmas Tree Shop!

Actually, there was an FMC (which burned in the late 60's. Then, Two Guys in the 70's. Followed by Caldor. Kohls should expand.

We could use a sporting goods store and a craft store in the area & there would be room there for both.

Trader Joe's with a nice sized parking lot!

Wegman's Supermarkets, based in Rochester, NY has a zoning application to build a new market on route 10. If you have ever been in a Wegman's store, you wil not want to shop anywhere else. I like Shop rite. They are the best in the area. But, they don't come close to the customer service, originality of meal creation and low pricing that is offered by Wegmans. Wegman's will also give Trader Joe's a run for their money. It is no wonder that the area markets are doing everything they can to prevent Wegmans from building here.

My guess would be an ethnic grocery of some sort will end up there if Kohl's does not acquire the space. Trader Joe's recently relocated to a new store in Florham Park in a high end strip mall and isn't going anywhere soon. Vornado Realty Trust won't want that place vacant too long or the smaller stores that depended on Shop Rite to drive traffic will fold.
