Discount retailer to open new NJ stores in Princeton, Freehold
PRINCETON – Ocean State Job Lot, a self-proclaimed “liquidation retailer”, will soon be moving into space at the Nassau Park Pavilion, formerly occupied by a Walmart that closed nearly a year ago.
NJ.com has indicated that the store’s new location, if it opens as planned by the end of 2021, will be the chain’s seventh in New Jersey. Five are already open, in Clinton, Deptford, Franklin Park, South Plainfield and Sparta, and the NJ.com report says another is slated to open this fall in Freehold.
The Nassau Park Lodge is technically located within the boundaries of the Township of West Windsor, on the south side of US Highway 1, just north of the Township of Lawrence.
Ocean State Job Lot sells indoor and outdoor furniture, lawn and garden care products, and other household essentials and decorative items.
According to the company’s website, more than 140 stores are currently open in all New England states, as well as New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The “Ocean State” is the nickname for Rhode Island, where the chain began in 1977.
