Allamuchy General Store Accident 1/10
A tractor trailer just drove into the store!! The cab is actually in the store ! Not sure about injuries yet.
Bummer. I sure hope no one is injured badly as it states injuries on the first responder website.
Seems no one was hurt...thankfully.
Didn't they just finish repairs from a previous accident from a couple years back? So fortunate that no one was hurt.
I hope Dean can get back up and running quickly! He's a good guy and works his ass off in there.
Glad to hear no one got hurt.
Mr. and Mrs. Pipes are sad and sorry that this accident happened, and we are glad nobody was hurt! Dean works very hard and is a good guy. We hope repairs can be made quickly and The General Store will be fully functioning soon!
Looks like damage to the building and chairs, tables, at least the deli and ice cream cases seem ok in the pic. Can they even back the truck out or do they need to prop up the ceiling first somehow? That is crazy!
So glad no one was hurt. All the Allamuchy kids grew up going into this store/post
office every day. Loved the ice cream fountain. Hope it's up and running soon.
Any word on when they will reopen?
The owner was interviewed on WRNJ last week and said probably 3-4 months before the store will be up and running. He and his family actually live in the building and have been displaced by the accident.
It was announced at Trinity on Sunday that Dean donated all the food from the store to the Lord's Pantry at Trinity. What an act of generosity at a time of personal tragedy!
Well, he has insurance and it should be insured along with business interruption coverage. It makes no sense to find a way to save the food which would cost money and what can be saved is questionable and an accounting nightmare. He probably ran this by his insurance company and after photos were taken to document...
Ok and he could have easily just thrown it out iJay. What's your point? Obviously he thought about people who needed it and rather than throw it out he put it to good use.
Dean, Thank you for your donation of food to Trinity. It was a very good decision. We are happy you will eventually reopen and hope the process goes smoothly. We look forward to again patronizing the Allamuchy General Store!!
Will this place ever reopen?

Was in there last week. They've created a beautiful new cafe that feels like an old time general store inside, great new menu and staff. Had an amazing burger!
