By PAUL J. PEYTON Village Super Markets of Springfield has won a lawsuit against opponents of a ShopRite Supermarket that the company wants to build in Garwood on the Westfield line.
The supermarket, which will be approximately 58,000squarefeet, was originally to be built in Westfield and Garwood on the site of Westfield Lumber and Home Center.
The WestfieldGarwood store was rejected by the Westfield Planning Board and approved by the Garwood Planning Board in 1995.
Village Super Markets later presented a plan to shift the entire store into Garwood, a plan also approved by the Garwood board. It was this plan that Union County Superior Court Judge Edward W. Beglin, Jr., ruled on last week.
