I think Leonard's post about luxury towers being proposed to replace the Waldbaums shopping center is just a joke. A litlle cynacism on his part. Billy Crystal he's not. I hear that the empty stores could be replaced by a check cashing place, a pawn shop, and a bail bondsman.
Leonard Bauman March 15, 2012 at 02:15 AM
Well not exactly a joke, but very wishful thinking. Lloyd is right, about what may become of Waldbaums if it goes belly up due to A&P's bankruptcy due to paying too much to buy Pathmark in 2007. If Lloyd's theory about pawn and check cashers does not happen maybe the City will build more of those ugly chocolate brown brick Section 8 tenements that folks call "The Projects" where Waldbaums is now. They can name it "Waldbaums Houses."

Seriously, Leonard...I'd hate to see Waldbaums close. Love it or hate it, the alternative could be a lot worse. I happen to like it for a variety of reasons and shop their regularly. The way this current admin treats private enterprise with their greed and corruption, I could see that property lying vacant for years just like all those empty lots by my building. By the way....we could use a good pawn shop and bail bondsman here in town.

Yeah, all the Democrat appointees and councilpeople will need the pawn shop and bail bondsmen after grand jury indictments happen. Waldbaums used to be a good store circa 1984-1987, but once Ira Waldbaum sold the store to A&P the place went to the rats. The cashiers are snippy, nasty, and lazy. The men's room is very filthy and smells like a combination of urine and booze. The bottle room is dirty, sticky floors, smells like a beer house, and the machines are few and break down all the time. I wish Wegman's, Aldi, Shop Rite, Key Food, or Super Walmart Supermarket took Waldbaums store over.

I havent had the pleasure of using their mens room. And if I only bought a few things, I use the self service check out. The cashiers I've met seem friendly enough. Generally I go the Oceanside store when I have cans and bottles to recycle. Their machines always work. I do have a gripe about the pharmacy which is usually out of my prescrips and they have to order it for the next day pickup. But now I solved that problem by ordering all my meds through Medco (mail order) for half the price.
