City of New Brunswick Statement Regarding the Closure of SuperFresh
When SuperFresh began to falter on their monthly rent payments, in an effort to maintain a downtown supermarket for the benefit and convenience of our residents, the New Brunswick Parking Authority worked closely with SuperFresh management to devise a business plan to maintain the daily operation of the store and to catch up on back payments owed.
This included a reduction of their space and a nearly 60 percent reduction in their rent, with the hopes that they would be able to convert into a successful operation. Despite these efforts, SuperFresh was unable to meet its financial obligations and the NBPA filed for eviction.
June 28 was agreed upon as the final day of business, but store management moved ahead and closed abruptly over the past weekend.
We are disappointed by this outcome, but discussions regarding the future of the space are ongoing as we search for new tenants.
