Delite renovates – more a liquor store than a market now

Little markets and bodegas are staples of urban neighborhoods that residents rely on for every day necessities. And Delite Market at 420 Washington Street was just that. They even boasted some pretty competitive wine prices too!

However – they’ve radically changed over the past few weeks – with the “market” like products vanishing, and it looks like it’s turned into a almost dedicated liquor store.

Hoboken411 reader Tanya said: “For the past month I’ve been wondering what’s going on with Delite Market on 5th & Washington. It was a nice market with a great selection of day-to-day items plus gourmet selections. For the past weeks it looks like they’ve been clearing out the store. Am disappointed because I’ve relied on this neighborhood store for about 10 years now!”

Speaking with the owners yesterday – they said it was a business strategy to switch to mostly liquor.

With 7 Eleven next door selling similar items, that may make sense. They even blamed the $5 foot longs at Subway as one of the influencing factors.
