Here's what surprised me, I went to their website and clicked on locations in New Jersey. The one on Rt. 37 in Toms River is a new location, one opening soon in Brick, and one opening soon in Beachwood. I didn't know about the one coming to Beachwood. On their website, Farm Stores Beachwood, coming soon at 315 Atlantic City Blvd. Beachwood, NJ.

There was a drive-thru grocery pick-up store there before, remember Welsh Farms. Will they knock that building down to put in a Farm Stores? Or will they just use the building that's already set for a drive-thru?

The Farm Stores grocery drive-thru is red and looks like a small barn. They're known for their fresh bread and fresh squeezed orange juice, and all your grocery needs.

Fresh groceries everyday, drive-thru, that's convenience. What do you think? Is Ocean County ready for the Farm Stores? YES, why not?
