Bagel Shop Evicted, Owed Landlord $59K

The Shop, Inc. defaulted on payments and was forced out by an NJ Superior Court Officer, documents say

, the bagel and deli shop that was located in the shopping complex on Macarthur Boulevard, is no more. According to a notice posted on the eatery’s door, the owners were evicted late last month by an officer from the Superior Court of New Jersey’s Law Division.

According to court access records posted on the Superior Court’s website, Ramapo Centre Developers, LLC, the owner of the Macarthur Boulevard complex, filed suit against its tenant, called ‘The Store, Inc.,’ in May of this year for defaulting on payments.

The developer claimed the bagel shop owner owed $59,361.19 in unpaid fees, court documents said. Representatives of ‘The Store, Inc.’ did not appear in court at a May 15 hearing, documents said.

The landlord received a 'default judgment' in its favor because the bagel shop owner did not appear, documents say.

According to the notice posted on the door, Court Officer Bruce Piekarsky was ordered to “dispossess the tenant and place the landlord in full possession of the premises.”

Though the note said that the shop owners had three business days at the end of June to remove all possessions from the store, many remnants are still inside the now vacant storefront.

A representative from the Wilf Law Firm, which represented the Ramapo Centre Developers and was the listed attorney of record for this case, said he could not provide any additional information about the circumstances of the eviction.

I heard the same thing this morning from someone who works at Ramapo Centre. Not sure the space is big enough for a Market Basket, though.

I should clarify that the space that I was told Market Basket would be using is the former PrimeTime daycare center, not the bagel shop.

Would love to see some kind of yoga/workout studio go into the daycare spot!

I don't think that a yoga/workout studio would last in the day care center
