Barber shop in store for E. Grand property

It looks like another barber shop is in store for Rahway. While snapping photos of the demolition work for Renaissance at Rahway last week, I noticed signs in the window of the former MJ Bait and Tackle shop promoting a new barber shop, “T-Liners,” coming soon.

The property at 273-275 E. Grand Ave. was the only one not acquired for the adjacent Renaissance project, a five-story 88-unit development. The owner of the property threatened to file suit against the Renaissance project during a Planning Board meeting last spring. The lawsuit doesn’t look very likely at this point and the property has since been removed from the redevelopment area by the Redevelopment Agency.
