Scott’s Review:

The latest flagship ShopRite is located about a mile away from the old New Milford location and bears striking resemblance to the Wyckoff store.

The Food Court

If you are like me and did not pre-plan your trip in advance, grab a circular and some food from many of the the mini restaurants and relax in the food court. You will save money if you take a minute to see what is on sale. People also make less impulse buys when they shop with a full stomach. #smartshopping #savemoney

You enter into a small food court with a cafe, Mediterranean bar (8.49/ lb). Unlike their other new location in Wyckoff, this location has a salad and soup bar! (Also at $8.49/lb). And for the easy grab and go, there are a lot of pre-packaged meals. Their hot grill has breakfast sandwiches as well as burgers, cheesesteaks and chicken hot sandwiches at reasonable prices.

The deli offers standard fare but a nice display with friendly staff. To save you a lot of time, there is a nice section of pre-cut deli selections if you are not too particular with your deli order.

The produce displays the standard produce selections. There is a “certified organic” island that is clearly marked – if that’s your thing.

Also note, for young shoppers, there is a display as you enter the store near the produce section (see above “Free Food” photo) with free healthy fruits for kids to take while you shop. So take some wipes and napkins with you to help keep the little fingers clean.

The bakery is very well appointed with breads, cookies and cakes. You will wonder on how the artfully decorated cakes sport price tags under $10. This will be your go-to place for desserts!

Seafood and Butcher

The seafood department also has a fresh sushi section and while the lobster tank is in the back, there is a nice clam washing shower in the front of the seafood department. Ask the happy butcher about the dry aging process – I learned something new today!

If you are into organic food, note that there is an organic aisle just near the produce section – and there is a refrigerated area there with the organic milks and dairy.

Organic Milks – Located Far From Other Dairy

The grocer aisles are cavernous – this is not a store you run in and run out of for a few items. What I did find nice was that the refrigerated sections all had doors on the cases which made the section warmer than what you would find in other stores.

Please consider their Wholesome Pantry offerings which claim to be without artificial flavors, colorings, and unnatural preservatives. There are regular Wholesome Pantry and organic Wholesome Pantry options.

The are an abundance of registers with plenty of express lanes and staffed registers. But, if you’d like to check yourself out you’ll find the “self check-out” lanes on the left side of the register bank.

This ShopRite store DOES NOT have an attached liquor store. But never fear! Right around the corner, you will find New Milford Liquors at 401 River Rd and a bit further away you can find Bottle King in Dumont.

Florist: Get some fresh flowers for a friend, yourself or you sweetie at the florist located by the store entrance.

Hacking Shopping

Dieticians Nook: As you enter the store, you will see the Dietitians Nook on your right. This contains a little display conveniently stocked with a recipe card and ingredients to make a healthy meal. I like this idea as it reminds me of those boxed delivery services like Blue Apron. So, stop by and give it a try.

Shop from Home:  Go to the ShopRite website and Shop from Home

Shop from Recipes: On the ShopRite web site you can find the Recipes Section which provides recipes and ingredients where you can add the ingredients right to your shopping cart – Although currently this location does not offer Shop at Home, you will be able to print out your shopping list.

Place your Deli Order ahead of time:  ShopRite New Milford allows you to place your Deli Order ahead of time – If you’re like me, you hate standing in the deli area waiting for your number to be called – what a waste of time. Now improve your efficiency by visiting this site: ShopRite Deli Online

Get on Facebook: There are a couple of Facebook groups dedicated to the whole couponing experience and you can learn a lot from these groups. To find them, search Facebook for “ShopRite” in groups. Then learn how to purchase items for pennies. And, possibly make extra donations to food pantries and shelters in your area.

Scott’s Review:

Tucked away from the main roads of Waldwick, NJ, the Whistle Stop is a bustling place for locals and commuters to grab a quick bite or enjoy some ice cream. This is a quintessential mom and pop place owned by locals Tami and Neil Moses with a breakfast, lunch, hot grill, ice cream and to-go comfort food dinners. During the warmer months, the picnic tables and an outside play areas can be overrun with kids and adults enjoying burgers, sandwiches and ice cream.

Weekly homemade soup specials can include: Chicken Noodle, “Famous” Broccoli Cheddar, Corn Chowder, Cream of Spinach or Split Pea with Ham/Bacon. Be sure to try their salads and chili’s too!

Dinner Specials include soup or salad and can be purchased individually or by the 1/2 tray. These rotate on a weekly basis and can be chicken, beef, pasta dishes..

This restaurant is rooted in Waldwick with a couple of their items created in honor of hometown heros whose foundations will receive a portion of the sales. Get the “Daggo” in honor of SSGT. Joseph D’Augustine which is a Bacon, Egg and American Cheese on a hero roll. Or try the “#38” to honor Ptl. Christopher M. Goodell which is a Vanilla ice cream chocolate crunchies “dirt” with Whipped cream topped with red, white and blue sprinkles.

Ice Cream!

They proudly serve Nelson’s Dutch Farms Ice Cream “Nix Besser / None Better” which is imported from the Pennsylvania Dutch and its fresh!

You can visit the Nelsons Dutch Farms Ice Cream website to read descriptions of their flavors and review their list of allergens.

For your canine friends, order the “Doggy Delight” which is a small cup of vanilla ice cream with a dog biscuit.

Scott’s Review:

This ShopRite is the new flagship store which is located a few yards away from Stop and Shop. My goal for this review is to capture the entirety of the store and it’s the ShopRite website in this review to help you better plan your trip.

The Food Court

You enter into a food court with a cafe, florist, Mediterranean bar (8.49/ lb) I wish they had a standard salad bar – but they don’t. Their hot grill has breakfast sandwiches as well as burgers, cheesesteaks and chicken hot sandwiches at reasonable prices.

The Chef Prepared foods are also good for a quick grab-and-go. The deli offers standard fare but a nice display with friendly staff. To save you a lot of time, there is a nice section of precut deli selections if you are to particular in your deli order. There’s a cheese nook past the deli which looks to have every type of cheese you can imagine (including local selections). Grab some good gouda!

Seafood and Butcher

The seafood department doubles as a food truck since it sells freshly made sushi, ramen bowls and Deopbap (Poke) bowls.

The butcher has fresh cut meat on display and old meat on display (aged beef) which is typically only found at high end steak houses.

Remainder of Store

The grocer aisles are cavernous – this is not a store you run in and run out of for a few items. What I did find nice was that the refrigerated sections all had doors on the cases which made the section warmer than what you would find in other stores.

The registers are in abundance with about 20 of them with the express lanes on the left and the “self check-outs” on the right.

You will see that there aren’t any liquor stores attached to this ShopRite. But right around the corner, you will find Wine & Spirit World.

The local Pharmacy options are:

Exiting ShopRite of Wyckoff, you will find:

  • Carpet Steamer rental
  • Coinstar
  • Scratch Off Lottery vending machine
  • Water bottle return container

Scott’s Review:

Bernie’s Bagels is a great local sandwich shop in Allendale, NJ that provides fresh bagels and sandwiches. Stop in for breakfast or lunch or have them cater your event or meeting.   In the morning you’re having a fresh bagel with coffee and for lunch you’ll have a sub, sandwich, salad, or a wrap.  They have Boar’s Head selections and are very generous with their potions.

Haven’t had a bad cup of coffee from here yet.

Typically fast service but calling in your order ahead of time will guaranty a quicker visit.

They have a large assortment of drinks and chips to choose from in addition to their daily specials which are posted near the registers.

Dine-in, take-out, or dine outside during the warmer weather months.

Also, they have outdoor seating available weather permitting.

They accept  Cash, Amex, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.

70 W Allendale Ave
Allendale, New Jersey 07401

Parking: Park on the street (free street parking) or in the parking lot in the back.

Phone:  (201) 327-1081

Hours: M-F 9AM to 5PM (according to the yellow pages) but I know their hours vary.

Scott’s Review:

During their over 40 years in business, they have perfected what visiting an eye doctor is all about – they really should package it up and sell their business model to all new optometrist graduates.  First, call the main number and make an appointment – the office staff is nice and friendly.  As most good eye doctors, expect to not get an appointment that week but it will be worth the wait.  Dr. Levy is skilled in glasses, contacts and other eye-related things.  Even though he is an eye doctor, he’s not afraid to push laser vision (Lasik) correction performed by someone else if he thinks that it could be beneficial for the patient.

They have state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment (glaucoma testing, peripheral vision and retinal checking that also predicts the strength of your lenses) Dr. Levy is very personable as is his office staff.  Appointments last about 45-90 minutes but you’re moved between different rooms and devices so it doesn’t seem so long.

It’s a family practice so I recommend bringing your children there and stopping before or after your appointment for lunch or dinner at the AB&G (Allendale Bar and Grill)  across the street from the office for a burger, and some popcorn while you wait for your food order.

They (Dr. Levy, not AB&G) 🙂 take VSP insurance.

He’s highly rated on Healthgrades   and Wellness.com and as a 15-year patient, I will recommend him to any of my friends in Bergen County.
