Jersey City Target renovates, expands supermarket & groceries

I could have sworn that at some point in the past four years – within the 10,000 stories published on Hoboken411, that there’d be a listing for Target over in Jersey City… Amazingly not.

Regardless, the JC Target is one of my favorite places to shop. Not only do they carry practically everything you’d ever need – the prices are fair and it’s ridiculously close. Many Hoboken residents even walk there (you can even get a nice waterfront walk in while you’re at it…)

I’m sure many of you have noticed the new coupons Target sent out in the mail recently. As you might know, the Jersey City location recently underwent some major renovations. They slightly expanded the store (by eliminating some “back room” space), and arranged the aisles in a more efficient manner. But their proudest upgrade is the expanded grocery section. While very far from a full-fledged supermarket, the number of choices have increased dramatically.

What do you think of the renovated Target?

It’s great to have a Target so close to Hoboken. Hard to remember what life was like before it opened. The new grocery section doesn’t move me. I’d rather see a wider selection of non-food items. Targets in the ‘burbs carry more stuff.

As much as I liked the International Food Market, I find this Target a lot more useful. It’s so much more convenient than driving to the Walmart in Kearny or Jersey City.

Not impressed. Quality of produce is terrible, as are the prices. But the rest of the JC Target is fine.

What do expect when you limit your shopping to the dollar aisle.

Not everyone can afford top of the line goods, and having a place for general necessities at good prices is valuable to many in Hoboken. Some of the grocery items were very well priced ($1.99 for Simply Orange Juice, etc.) Saving money everywhere you can is important these days.[quote comment=”192059″]What do expect when you limit your shopping to the dollar aisle.Where do you think I get my cool logo T-shirts that have Run DMC or Atari on them – damn I am cool

I love the new section! Bananas are $0.19 each and salad bags are something like $3.19 (as opposed to $3.59 at the grocery store). It’s not a full sized grocery, but has all of the essentials, including chicken and ground meat. What is there not to like? It seems like people just like to complain.

The prices of many of their groceries are cheaper than the A&P and way cheaper than any of the Washington St. Markets. I mean really, less than 2 bucks for a 1/2 pound brick of cheese![quote comment=”192074″]I love the new section!
