Lidl Opens in Weehawken, Replacing Acme

Mayor Richard Turner and store manager Cody Smith cut the ribbon to Lidl’s newest food market location at Tower Plaza in Weehawken on Wednesday, Oct. 28 – bringing a walkable grocery store back to the area since Acme closed a year ago.

Located at Park Avenue and 40th Street, the grocery store is Hudson County’s first Lidl, a German grocery chain that expanded into the U.S. three years ago. 

“From the minute Acme closed down we had tremendous requests to get a new supermarket, and Lidl came in,” said Mayor Richard Turner.

This grocery store is much needed for residents along the Gold Coast – bringing a sense of security back to the community that relies on foot traffic.
