The once West Orange landmark was green-lit to move to its new location in Roseland with approval from the town's Planning Board Monday night, the Progress News has reported.
The board approved plans for Marty Horn, the original owner's grandson, also Marty Horn, to open a 60-seat restaurant inside the market with a few stipulations, the article stated.
Fans of “Pals Famous and Original Foods,” including cream of mushroom soup, French onion soup, the Redwood Wrap, foot-long hot dogs and hot turkey and roast beef sandwiches, will be able to get their fill at Fairchilds Market, 171 Eagle Rock Ave. in Roseland.
Fairchilds, also a wine shop and gift store, serves breakfast and lunch, originally announced through its Facebook page it planned to include dinner service soon following its partnership with Pals in early July.
Pals closed its doors after 81 years at its famous site in West Orange back in June citing high overhead costs.
Pals opened in 1932, when friends Martin L. (Marty) Horn and Bion Leroy (Roy) Sale joined forces. It started off as a modest hot dog stand, 10-by-12 feet, in the midst of the Great Depression. The restaurant was passed down through the Horn family throughout the years.
No timeline was reported for the approved plans.
