retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Stew Leonard’s will open its seventh food store to the public in Paramus, New Jersey, tomorrow, the first food store the company has opened in the Garden State. The 80,000 square foot unit, in the Paramus Park Mall, is in the space formerly occupied by a Sears.

In a ceremony last night, the Leonard family hosted a ribbon-cutting by New Jersey native Martha Stewart … and featured a live cow that was named after Stewart, who has been a longtime shopper at the original Stew Leonard’s in Norwalk, Connecticut.
