Fairway Market is closing its Paramus store for good on May 15 after Amazon purchased the location in March following the supermarket chain’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
The store has remained open since the sale in order to serve the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Closing the Paramus location will allow the grocer to reallocate resources and maintain operations at its seven locations remaining across the tri-state area.
“Fairway Market is committed to serving our communities and maintaining the jobs for our valued employees, especially in these unprecedented times,” said Chief Executive Officer Abel Porter in a prepared statement. “We have maintained operations in Paramus following the sale of this location. The closing of the store will allow us to redeploy our limited resources for the remaining seven locations where we continue operations during the court-supervised auction process.”
New Jersey has one remaining Fairway Market location in Woodland Park.
