Paramus New Jersey Is A Shopping Mall Paradise

Now that Thanksgiving is past, the annual holiday shopping season is in full swing.  Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights, and Christmas dominate the December holiday buying season.  We also have Kwanza  and that is also a significant holiday this month.  With all the parties, events and home entertaining that goes on in December it’s no wonder that this is a busy time of year.

Bergen County is famous for it’s concentration of shopping malls located on Route 17 and Route 4 in Paramus.  There is one major mall right on the border, Riverside Square.  This major mall is actually in Hackensack although none of the shoppers going there know it.  No matter where you live in Bergen County, you’re no more than a 10-15 minute drive to a major shopping center.  This is truly a shopping mall paradise.

Right on Route 4 you’ll find the very upscale Shops at Riverside and the discount mall Bergen Town Center and a minute or two west at the intersection of Route 4 and Route 17 is the Garden State Plaza which is one of the largest shopping malls in the New York metro area.  Further up Route 17 is the Fashion Center and the Paramus Park Mall although connecting all of these are countless other local malls.

In addition to the major malls and countless others on the Paramus highways you have other options too.  Major local shopping centers with national brands exist in robust local town business districts.  Englewood has a bustling downtown with The Gap, Starbucks, Ann Taylor, Chicos and more.  Ridgewood has the most extensive business district in Bergen County that is peppered with 4 star restaurants.  Westwood is much smaller but boasts stores that are into 2nd and 3rd generation owners.

Paramus remains the epicenter of shopping however.  If you need to “shop till you drop” Bergen County has will make you smile!
