Sickles Market, One Harrison Avenue, Little Silver, will open a second location in Red Bank in early 2018.
The newest addition to Sickles Market will occupy a 7,000-square-foot, street-level space in the totally renovated Anderson building – which has been vacant for more than 30 years – in the heart of the Antique and Arts District on the city’s west side. Renovations to the Anderson Moving and Storage Building are scheduled to begin in 2016.
The new market will continue Sickles’ century-old commitment to quality and service, and include a deli with prepared foods, bakery, butcher, seafood, coffee and more. The new site will add approximately 55 local jobs to its existing staff of 165.
The Anderson building, a 40,000 square-foot 1920’s former warehouse located across from the Red Bank Train Station, is being developed by Metrovation, a privately owned specialty redevelopment company with locations in California and New Jersey. Metrovation also owns and manages several properties in Red Bank and Shrewsbury including The Grove, an upscale lifestyle center in Shrewsbury, and its latest project – the West Side Lofts, a state-of-the-art, mixed-use development with 91 residences, nine townhomes and approximately 25,000 square feet of retail located next to the Two River Theater.
“We are thrilled to be working with Metrovation on this project,” said Bob Sickles, a third generation owner. “They have a proven track record as one of our country’s most innovative and visionary developers. This is smart growth for Red Bank and it is the right time and place for Sickles Market to expand its superior products and services into downtown Red Bank. In fact, over 100 years ago Sickles Market started in the town of Red Bank. We’ve come full circle,” he added.
Sickles Market, established in 1908, is a trusted source for the highest quality produce, baked goods, gourmet grocery items, meats, hand cut-to-order artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, prepared foods, cut flowers, plants, kitchen tools and essentials and service to be found anywhere. Sickles Market is located on ancestral property that dates back to a King’s Land Grant in 1665. It is open daily from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. For more information, visit www.sicklesmarket.com
