As someone who has grown up in Hudson County and was raised on the concept of value shopping, I realized most people don’t know where to go for essentials at a reasonable price. There’s a strange connotation behind buying clothes from certain stores simply based on value, but let’s be realistic – most people can’t afford to spend too much money on clothing, or would rather stay under a certain budget while still getting quality products. In Journal Square, there’s a number of stores that are perfect for anyone looking to spend money wisely while still buying what they need.
If you’re not sure where to start, here are a few spots in the Journal Square area great for value shopping!
2865 John F. Kennedy Blvd.
Rainbow has been around for years, and it’s one of the most convenient places in the area for women’s clothing at a reasonable price. Running from size Small to 3X and selling key items, Rainbow is perfect for women looking for a place to get great-looking pieces without breaking the bank.
2. 10 Spot Plus

Thrift stores have become a trend over the last few years, but it’s important to remember that thrift stores and donation-based clothing centers like Goodwill are the main places of clothes for many people. When it comes to getting clothes for reasonable prices, thrift stores and donation-based centers are great resources. New or gently used clothes (including those of name brands and well-known designers) are donated and made available for purchase at low prices. Other items are sold here as well, from toys and books to furniture! Consider stores like Goodwill for anything at a fair price.
