Marlboro residents will have a new place to buy groceries as a new chain takes over the space on Rt. 520 last occupied by A&P.

The Asbury Park Press reports The Food Emporium is expected to open next summer in the Marlboro Shopping Center, and will be the first store of its kind in the area. The chain is under the umbrella of Key Food.
