6th Ave. Electronics Cited in Retail Vacancy Rate In Northern NJ

Brunelli & Co released a report stating that the vacancy rate in retail properties in northern New Jersey's six major shopping corridors increased to 8.2 percent in April, up from 8.1 percent a year ago and 8.0 percent in 2010. The former Springfield site of was among the properties cited. 

R.J. Brunelli & Co reports that while a number of big box stores have acquired significant commercial spaces in the state, continued store closings—including 6th Avenue Electronics—are keeping the percentage of vacant stores high.

Very confusing report. In the same paragraph it says Dick's Sporting Goods took over the former Circuit City in Union. Yet later in the paragraph it says that the closings in Springfield, etc, added to existing empty buildings, including the Circuit City in Union. It also mentions the "long-vacant 150,000-square-foot Home Depot Expo in Union." It's been several years since Home Depot absorbed the Expo to create the Superstore that now stands.
