MATAWAN, NJ-C-Town Supermarkets has gotten the go-ahead to open an 11,800-sf supermarket on Main Street in this Monmouth County community’s downtown area. The local planning and zoning board yesterday granted the New York-based regional grocery chain its approval to open up on the site, which was formerly occupied by rival grocer Foodtown, and before that a hardware store.

One of the issues involving the project dealt with parking; Steve Hanna, president of C-Town had proposed 32 parking spaces, while local ordinances call for a minimum of 74 parking spaces for a retail building of that size. The project will get the 74 space, and Hanna says he’s currently in negotiations with the owners of an adjacent site to complete that parking complement.

C-Town currently operates 170 mid-sized supermarkets in a five-state area in the Northeast, and the local unit will be the chain’s 14th in New Jersey. The store is expected to open in about a year.
