Stew Leonard’s reportedly in talks for N.J. store

Paramus Park mall could be the Norwalk-based chain's first Garden State location.

Norwalk-based Stew Leonard’s is reportedly in discussions to open its first New Jersey grocery store at the Paramus Park mall.

According to coverage by NorthJersey.com, GGP Inc., the mall’s owner, has been replacing fashion-focused tenants in its malls with food stores and is seeking a grocery retailer for its Paramus location. It is unclear where Stew Leonard’s would be located within Paramus Park, although there is an unconfirmed report that the Sears location within the mall will be downsizing. Stew Leonard’s is a familiar name in this market – the company licenses its name to a wine retail chain that operates a store on Route 17 in Paramus.

Meghan Bell, director of public relations for Stew Leonard’s, acknowledged that the grocery chain is looking for a seventh store location and was in discussions with GGP, but was “not ready to make any announcements in regards to expansion.” Stew Leonard’s is scheduled to open its newest store in East Meadow, Long Island, next month.
