NJ's first Walmart supermarket coming to Hawthorne

NorthJersey.com reported last week that the first Walmart Neighborhood Market in New Jersey will be in Hawthorne. According to the story, Walmart signed a lease for 42,000 square feet at 204 Wagaraw Road, and the property will include additional retail.

The story describes Hawthorne as a middle class suburban town about 16 miles from New York City.

Walmart's Neighborhood Market format is a traditional supermarket, and reportedly the Hawthorne location will include a drive-through pharmacy. There are approximately 200 Neighborhood Markets in the United States.

Not surprisingly, a group of residents formed a group that is trying to stop the store from coming to Hawthorne.
