NEW JERSEY — Acme Markets is planning to close two stores in New Jersey, but will be opening three other locations in the tri-state, NJ.com reported.

Three Acme Markets will be closing by April 28, Acme Markets spokeswoman Danielle D’Elia told NJ.com. Its New Jersey stores in Upper Deerfield Township and Shrewsbury and a third location in Oxford, Penn., will be shutting their doors.

The two New Jersey locations, though, are surrounded by other supermarkets and stores, so residents will still have a place to go grocery shopping, NJ.com said.

But fans of the supermarket chain shouldn’t worry about losing the supermarket completely. Three more locations will be opening — two in New Jersey in Boonton and Sea Isle City, and one in Patterson, New York.

Acme Markets purchased 37 stores in New Jersey from A&P, Pathmark and Superfresh after a judge granted them permission last September, according to NJ.com.
