Schooley Mountain General Store for sale?

Noticed a For Sale sign our front. Wonder why...
Hopefully it sticks around as it such a fixture in the area. Terrific sandwiches there.

Owner retiring

I think the asking price I heard on WRNJ was $900 or $950k for it.

Double your money every 10 years on the sale of that property? Buy it now for 900k and in 2029 sell it for 1.8 mil.

Isn't this the place that had no pricing just made it up as they went?

And don't forget the memorable people who visited this prime spot.


OK, this one's a little tougher. It's from the 70's, obviously you know the coffee, but can you guess the star? And no, it is not Woody Allen in a wig...…. Good luck, my pretty.

I have never been. I want to try it before it may close. Do they take credit cards or just cash?

overpriced and attitude last time I was in there

Food was barely average and super over priced. Don't bother going there. Post office is great though

For that asking price you better have a really big bank account or a really good plan to sell a ton of sanwhichs and pizzas I would think and that’s not even including what it takes to keep the lights on jeez. 750k maybe

Bought hoagies, pizza and coffee there. Prices are reasonable. Kids that work there are friendly. And this is recent, was just there a couple of days ago. Problem is the same as when the homeowners in NJ want to sell their houses that reek of Rheingold and Cabbage, and have not been updated since Eisenhower was President, then want top dollar for it. Of course we are not talking about updating this place, that would be destructive, but the price is outrageous as are the houses I described above that were purchased for 30k and on the market for 500k. The youth of today need to stay in their mommy's basement for another 10 years instead of paying top dollar for these overpriced crapshacks that come with astronomical tax bills that, by the way, only pay the interest and not the principal that is owed to the retirees of NJ-the amount that currently stands at 239 BILLION DOLLARS. Who left that debt, and why should a child born today pay it?

The 900k price. EZ - just ask for 10 years taxes, run a breakeven and you’ll know asap whether you’ll make or lose money. Then put your spin on changes and improvements and you’ll have a plan to take to the bank for your loan.

I suggest posting prices and lose any surliness fyi.

Or mow it down for a new wawa’s.
