WOODBRIDGE – A grocery store with seven locations across New Jersey is looking to expand one of its two Oak Tree Road locations to provide customers with fresh baked goods.

The Patel Brothers grocery store, 1551 Oak Tree Road, in the Iselin section, is looking to build a 1,656 square foot addition that would be used for on-site cooking. Jahu Inc.’s request is for approval of the minor site plan and associated bulk deviations.

The request, which will be submitted to the town planning council at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, also provides for storage space and the fencing of the existing trolley storage area. The store is also looking to reconfigure the unloading and loading area, and making improvements to lighting and landscaping.

The meeting will be held in the Council Chamber at the Woodbridge Municipal Building. Anyone wishing to attend the hearing is asked to contact the Planning Commission office at 732-602-6005 to discuss the public health requirements in effect at the time of the hearing.

The Patel Brothers store in the Iselin section of Woodbridge, which is similar to this one, is looking to expand to offer baked goods on site.

To add a covered wagon corral, a parking space will need to be removed. To reconfigure the unloading and loading area, a screen wall will need to be moved 6 feet from a residential property.
