If you’re looking for a hard-to-find Funko Pop, hot chocolate bombs or “Squid Game” inspired cookies, you can bet that Showcase has it. These stores, which are called the “Home of the Hottest Trends” are popping up all over NJ but have actually been around in North America for a while. They sell the trendiest items that you and your kids are looking for including items in the home, beauty, toys, candy and tech categories.
Showcase says on its website that they’re the largest retailer of this kind and they have over 129 stores in North America including three in NJ. Founded in 1994 in Edmonton AB, Showcase is in every major market across Canada and is now expanding in the US.
There’s a newly opened Showcase at Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, one in Bridgewater Commons in Bridgewater and at the Freehold Raceway Mall in Freehold. New locations are coming soon to Rockaway Townsquare Mall in Rockaway, Menlo Park Mall in Edison and Paramus Park in Paramus.
Showcase sells those “As Seen on TV” products, but you can also find items like a weighted dinosaur plushie, ring lights, slime, selfie sticks and Proactiv and all the Squishmallows (basically all the stuff your tween/preteen or teen is begging for.)
This is the store that sells all the stuff you never knew you needed but will definitely need to have once you lay eyes on it. One thing customers love about Showcase is their “try it before you buy it” policy which means they have most products open and on display. Their #ShowcaseMadeMeBuyIt hashtag is also trending on social media. The store is sure to be a big hit for holiday gifts this year and we’ll be curious to see how crowded the new NJ locations get!
