The Pepperidge Farm Outlet Store, the thrift store that supplied generation of children with Goldfish crackers and was a guilty pleasure for anyone seeking below-price Milanos, will be closing for the final time on Thursday, June 18.
“They just told us that they are closing the store a few days ago. And that was it,” said a clerk on Saturday, May 16.
A Belmontonian message for comment was sent to Camden NJ-based Campbell Soup, which has owned Pepperidge Farm since 1961.
The store located at 87 Blanchard Rd. was known for its discount days – for seniors, teachers and the military – and the overall cost savings in which a wide-selection of breads, snacks, frozen foods, gift packages and cookies and crackers were always on sale.
