HOWELL — The closing announcement for the Howell Best Buy was yet another in a string of closures throughout the township over the past few months.

Despite the recent departure of many township businesses, good news is still on the horizon. The Best Buy is expected to be replaced with a Lidl grocery store.

Paramount Realty, realtors of the location in the Howell Plaza on Route 9, recently updated their website stating that a Lidl would be taking the place of the tech store. This information was later taken down off of Paramount’s website by early Tuesday morning, according to earlier reports.  

A post to the Howell Happenings NJ Facebook page broke the news of Paramount’s update on Monday, Jan. 14.

A representative from Paramount Realty did not respond to inquiries by press time.

Lidl grocery stores are beginning to expand throughout the county and state. With locations in Hazlet, Eatontown, and Union townships already, a Lidl is soon-to-be open for business in Lacey Township.
