History

The Grove at Shrewsbury, New Jersey's first lifestyle center, opened in 1988.[citation needed] In the late 1980s, the lifestyle center was a new idea in retail. It requires less land than a regional shopping center, produces higher per square foot sales than many shopping centers and is thought of as being more convenient and accessible to shoppers due to its smaller size. The Grove fits all these qualities and further attracted retailers to its property due to its lush, well-kept gardens, brick walkways, comfortable seating areas, community events, and individual storefronts. The primary anchor in the early years of The Grove was Epstein's, a regional New Jersey Department store. Epstein's would later close and Sealfon's, another upscale, regional New Jersey department store opened in its place. That store also went out of business. The space was eventually subdivided and in its place opened a flagship Brooks Brothers and Anthropologie, Monmouth County's first.
