Remembering The Past: Past New Brunswick Businesses

by Diane Norek Harrison

NEW BRUNSWICK-My column can now contain memories or past material from any town in Middlesex or Union counties. Here is a new one to start it off. New Brunswick is the county seat for Middlesex County.

In 1926, Paulus Dairy had John Paulus as the proprietor and was established in 1890. The main office was at 189-195 New St. phone number was 2400. Their motto was “Cleanliness-Protect the babies-Don’t be mislead-Be sure it is Paulus’ milk.”  There was also Krauzer’s Dairy.


George St. was a popular shopping area, a few businesses that were once there: Arnold Constabile’s, Buell & Reppert, florist, Camera Craft, Food Fair Markets, P.J. Young, W.T. Grant Co. and Wallach’s.

Remember the soda fountain at Zajac’s? In 1942, there was Boltin Music Co.

Remember when the New Brunswick Police Station was on Memorial Parkway? It is now on Kirkpatrick St.
