Putting together this project felt so nostalgic. We requested that our readers, family members, and friends submit us a list of their favorite New Jersey department stores that had a significant impact on their life but are now permanently closed.
Following this succinct overview, we have compiled a photo gallery, each with a detailed description of the famous store.
We all have fond recollections of these events, whether it was going to your favorite department store for back-to-school clothes and other school supplies or everyday shopping requirements.
Growing up in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Two Guys was my preferred department store. We went there for all of our back-to-school shopping as well as for any other reason or no reason at all. Everything appeared to be theirs. You didn’t require it if they didn’t have it.
The covered soft pretzel shop next to the front door was one of our favorite aspects of visiting Two Guys. Soft pretzels can now be purchased frozen, heated in the oven or microwave, and consumed whenever you want.
It was one of the only ways to savor mouthwatering, freshly made, sizzling hot soft pretzels back then. Here are a few old photos taken by the Two Guys group. I paid for both of these pictures myself.
Star Trek was one of the most popular television shows in America at the time, Leonard Nimoy, aka “Mr. Spock,” visited the set of Two Guys. Two Guys was that “huge” and current at the time.
The last Two Guys department store closed more than 30 years ago, and I still miss it a lot. All that is left are the pleasant recollections of a period when life was much easier. Please enjoy the gallery of fantastic stores that we adored but are no longer open.
