two Fairway Market stores in NJ
Amazon will take over two Fairway Market stores in New Jersey — two fewer than the tech giant had hoped to acquire in a bankruptcy auction that ended on Wednesday, The Post has learned.

Sources say Village Supermarket — which operates Shoprite stores and had been the stalking horse bidder for Fairway’s five Manhattan stores, a store in Pelham, and its brand name — is buying at least four stores.
Village is said to be taking the flagship Fairway store at 2031 Broadway, the Kips Bay store at 550 Second Ave., 240 E. 86th St. and 766 Sixth Avenue in Chelsea. It’s unclear whether Village is taking the Harlem store, sources said. Out of 14 stores, five did not receive bids. They include Westbury, Plainview, Stamford, Conn., Douglaston and Red Hook, Brooklyn, according to multiple sources.
