Ocean State Job Lot purchased the rundown decrepit and long neglected Webster Square Plaza in Berlin, Connecticut where their store is located in a former Foodmart for $3.3 Million in early December 2013. Now it looks like they're going to be taking over the former vacant 60,000 A&P Super Foodmart.

"F" is Job Lot's current location in the plaza and it's shown here as vacant. "K" is the former A&P Super Foodmart, which is shown as Job Lot's location.

60,000 square feet is huge for a Job Lot store and nearly 3 times their existing store in the plaza!

Webster Square the run down fire damaged shopping center off the Berlin Turnpike?

I know that Job Lot is  a close-out chain, but I'm still surprised to see them selling electric fireplaces from Walmart Canada.

Yeah, I think they'll buy from anyone who wants to get rid of something :)

My "famous" example (which is probably somewhere back in the 7 pages of this post) is one past summer where they had an aisle set up for cook outs.  Seemed like every item there (like plates, cups, silverware, condiments etc.) was from a different chain, mostly grocery stores, all over the country, including a couple fairly local (for example, I think that was when S&S was changing logos, so they had something with their old logo).

Something's going on with the Ocean State Job Lot in downtown New Britain, Connecticut. While the store is still listed on their store locator, the space is shown as vacant on the landlord's website.

I emailed the weekly independent newspaper The New Britain City Journal and their editor responded that she heard rumors that they were closing, but hadn't heard anything official yet.

I asked Ocean State about when their Berlin, CT store would be ready, and they said due to a slower construction process, it won't be until October.

I see they are continuing their NY state tradition of choosing former/future supermarkets for their stores (one or two aren't, but they have an old Price Chopper, A&P Future store, part of an Albany Public space, a couple former Grand Unions, a Finast and one future Grand Union (plus this Pathmark) among the 10 stores in the state (and one former Joy Store/toy store as well)).

Also checking the store locator, I see 3 NJ stores - those have to be fairly new as well?

Shaw's moved to the larger Ames space when they folded, leaving their former location in the Falmouth Shopping Center without a tenant for more than a decade.
