High end retailer has been operating in smaller footprint since 2013
RIVERDALE, N.J. – After nearly 90 years in business, upper-end furniture retailer Bograd’s Fine Furniture is closing its doors.
In letter from owners Joe and Marcia Bograd, the company said that it has sold its building to AJ Willner Auctions, which will hold an auction of the remaining inventory both onsite and online on June 15.
The news follows the company’s mid-2013 change in strategy to operate in a smaller footprint that carried fewer brands. The store also was renamed @Bograds, with Joe Bograd serving as CEO and his son Mark serving as president.
Mark Bograd is now general manager at White House Designs for Life, which has three locations: an 18,000-square-foot White House Living store in Wayne, N.J., a 14,000-square-foot White House Luxe store in Fairfield, N.J. and a 5,000-square-foot Design Resource location attached to the Fairfield store. Joe and Marcia Bograd have since retired.
“It’s been 89 wonderful years for Bograd’s and 63 glorious years for me,” Joe Bograd wrote to the store’s longtime customers. “It’s hard to believe that it’s all coming to an end. … Marcia, Mark and I want to thank you for the many years of loyalty you demonstrated to our brand and the help you gave in making Bograd’s one of the most respected names in the furniture industry nationwide.
“The time has come to move on,” he added. “And so we do with wonderful memories of the many customers with whom we’ve developed incredible relationships and the many people in the furniture industry who had enormous respect for the way we ran our business.”
The company has been trying to sell its building in Riverdale since 2012, while operating in a footprint that was about 15,000 square feet, or half the original 30,000-square-foot showroom. The entire space, including administrative offices, was about 38,000 square feet.
“Did we have success? Sure we had success, but at its core, we were saddled with a property that was bigger than what we had needed,” said Mark Bograd, noting that the cost of running a property that size made it difficult to restart the business under the new name. “We certainly tried operating in a smaller footprint, but at the end of the day, my father really wanted to be able to retire, and we really wanted to sell our building. … We had a property we owned and were able to basically utilize the asset until we were able to sell it.”
Bograd said that he got to know White House Designs for Life owner Karen Arakelian while collaborating on a clearance event. He joined the company earlier this year.
“She has a very strong business with interior designers, and I have a very strong business with high-end residential clientele,” Bograd said, noting that key brands include Century, Hancock & Moore, Taylor King among others such as Vanguard and Theodore Alexander. “We felt that capitalizing on both those things would be very good. It also gives a broader range of choice to today’s consumer while not diminishing the quality of the brands overall.”
“In this economy, the opportunities for new collaborations are important,” he added. “I also would rather build on someone’s success rather than the only way being able to move forward is to compete. The smaller independent needs to be strengthened against other forms of retail. There is still room for that, especially at the high end.”
In closing, he believes that this new chapter brings opportunity for both him and his family.
“I think that the important thing from my father’s standpoint is that he always has been able to run the business the way he wanted to run it and build respect from his customer base and in the professional community. He did a great job of that,” Bograd said. “At the same time, it is a great time for him to be able to retire and enjoy the rest of what life has to offer. For me, I am looking forward to new challenges and a renewed activation in the high end retail market.”

TRI-BORO, NJ -- Want to try a more variety of food, or find a new place to have the favorite meal? Yelp has helped those curious find the best places for food, including Riverdale. Here are Yelps top 10 restaurants in Riverdale along with reviewers are saying about them.
1. Coney Island Pizza
40 Hamburg Tpke Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (973) 831-0222
What they are saying: We came here last night and had a delicious meal. We ordered the mussels, a personal Fra Diavolo pizza with pepperoni added, and a Chicken Boniello dinner over angel hair with 2 side salads added. Everything was great. The mussels tasted pretty fishy, but the sauce was so good that it made up for it. The pizza was cooked perfectly. I loved the crust and was so glad we had the mussels sauce to dip it in. (They also gave us bread, but that was nothing to write home about.) The side salads were really nice too. For $4 it was definitely worth it. The Chicken Boniello was great too. I don't usually order chicken dishes when I'm out, but the girl at the table next to us got it and it looked so good we had to try it. It was chicken in a pink sauce with mushrooms over angel hair, and we loved it. Good service, BYOB, can't really go wrong here. I can't wait to go back!
3. Blu Alehouse
92 Rt 23 N Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (973) 831-4258
What they are saying: I like this place. It definitely has that "large sports bar feel" but with a more contemporary feel. It's clean, it's open, and the service is always super friendly. I do have to say, service being that friendly on the regular is huge for me in places like these. They still make you feel like you're important even though they have a packed house with hundreds of people. I've been here a few times now, on a raging Saturday, a 'country' popping Thursday and a football Sunday. I think that allows me to believe I've covered my ground. Overall they are consistent, they get drinks out pretty quick, the food is good for bar food. I enjoy this place more than any other sports bar in the area. The crowd is also always enjoying themselves. I like coming here and don't mind driving the few minutes extra than the other sports bar near me. Nice job Blu!
4. Brookside Bistro
26 Hamburg Tpke Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (973) 616-0606
What they are saying: This bistro is a gem! We were here on a Sunday and did the small plates menu with wine pairing. I cannot say enough about the delicious 5 course plates and accompanying wine. We will be back as often as possible! Service was exceptional! Thank you, Wendy and chef-husband for a great meal (and experience).
5. Precious Chinese Cuisine
72 Paterson Hamburg Tpke Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (973) 616-0166
What they are saying: My friend lives in Riverdale so when we order Chinese we always order from here. This was the first time I actually called them and ordered pick up strictly for myself. The woman was so nice!! Food is always really good! Will definitely return!!!
6. Flamming Grill & Supreme Buffet
92 Rt 23 N Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (862) 377-0598
What they are saying: Great buffet with plenty of options to satisfy the pickiest of eaters. Flaming grill has literally every buffet type option I've experienced at other buffets in my day but tops them all in my opinion with their hibachi station.All the food is hot and fresh and constantly being refreshed. I sampled a little bit of everything including their delicious hibachi bar and self serve ice cream with about 8 different options. The hibachi station allows you to customize your dish to your liking and has plenty of options from beef to chicken to shrimp. I wish I took a picture of station because its pretty impressive. They have a huge selection of desserts which is always nice to finish off your meal.The waitresses here are really nice and very quick with cleaning up your table so you aren't left with a million empty dirty plates taking up valuable room. The prices are reasonable especially for what they offer here. I will definitely be back!
7. Italian Table Trattoria/Pizza
92 Rt 23 N Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (973) 248-9900
What they are saying: Best Italian food so far in our area. Their spiedini and spaghetti and meatballs meal are amazing! They also have prompt and polite service, too! Also, their prices are comparable to the other Italian restaurants in the area.
58 Rte 23 N Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (973) 616-0382
What they are saying: My usual spot I come for lunch. Super convenient with the new tablet system that allows fast service. I like that they have a rewards membership that you can sign up and ear points towards free items. I usually get the lunch specials and pick the house salad and the chicken bacon ranch quesadillas with fries that are really good and at a good price. Everything comes out super quick and is really fresh. I love their chips and salsa as well as their guacamole as well. Being able to pay on the tablet eliminates having to chase down the waitress for your check and makes leaving to get back to work on time a much easier obstacle.
9. Black Bull Steakhouse & Seafood
88 Newark Pompton Tpke Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (973) 831-2825
What they are saying: We will be back. Not only was the meat eater of the family happy the vegetarian was pleasantly surprised !!!! I'm so happy we found a place that we both could enjoy.
10. Riverdale Luncheonette
45 Hamburg Tpke Riverdale, NJ 07457
Phone number: (973) 831-0836
What they are saying: I have a serious predisposition to love places like this. It's the sort of old-school lunch counter that's become increasingly rare these days. At the Riverdale Luncheonette, expect to find a great price on a simple meal served with a smile. I sat at the counter and ordered one of the specials, a grilled chicken sandwich that came with macaroni salad. It was served fresh off the griddle on a fresh crusty half sub. The macaroni salad was of the vinegar variety, sprinkled generously with pepper. Service was super friendly and the decor was simple and clean. This will definitely be one of my go-to lunch spots in the area, they have a good variety of food and it's not all fried garbage so I can feel mildly healthy. Breakfast and lunch only, and I'm pretty sure it's cash only. A great neighborhood place!

RIVERDALE, NJ — Two weeks after a single ticket won the $533 million Mega Millions jackpot, the winner's identity has been revealed: Richard Wahl from Vernon, New Jersey. The Wahl family has opted for the cash option, meaning they will take home $175 million after taxes.
The winning ticket was sold at the Lukoil South gas station on Route 23 in Riverdale on March 30. Although the owner said last week that Wahl was a regular customer, Wahl disputed that characterization, saying, "I've been in there maybe four or five times."
Wahl, 47, who is originally from Michigan, played the lottery after chatting with a coworker about retirement. It was only the second time he had ever played Mega Millions, he said.
"Baby, we get to go on vacation," Wahl said, recounting how he told his wife they won the jackpot, tearing up as he spoke. He declined to say where they were headed, but that they were flying out tonight.
"We believe God has a plan, so for us the plan is to do a lot of good things with it," Wahl said, saying he wants to use the money to change the lives of his family, friends, and those in need.
Wahl said the family would not "go out and party it up," and would rely on financial advisors to make the most of their winnings. He declined to speak further about how specifically he would use the money for his family, but did say he looks forward to helping his retired mother and has always dreamed of rebuilding a 1960s Corvette.
He said the family is looking forward to contributing to communities in Mexico, where his wife is from.
A manager at AAK Foodservice, Wahl said he's helping the company find a replacement before retiring.
The winning numbers were 11, 28, 31, 46 and 59, and the gold Mega Ball was 1. Wahl said he used easy pick numbers when he bought the ticket, calling it proof that it was "God's plan."
It’s not unusual for winners of particularly large jackpots to wait several days, if not weeks, before stepping forward. Winners usually consult legal and financial professionals before claiming their life-changing winnings.
Wahl took home the 4th largest Mega Millions lottery jackpot in history, and the largest in New Jersey history.
This is a developing story. Check back for more details.

Denizens Brewing Co. announced this week that they will be partnering with local food truck Catalyst Hot Dogs to bring an accessible New Jersey-style food menu to match their beer at the brewery’s Riverdale Park location.
Catalyst Hot Dogs, which hit the streets of Silver Spring in late 2020, will take over Denizens’ kitchen in Riverdale Park from Jan. 5 to expand their dream of opening a brick-and-mortar hot dog restaurant in New Jersey, while Denizens will continue to focus on expanding its beer footprint in the area.
“COVID-19 significantly disrupted the hospitality industry, which created new opportunities for partnerships and creative ways to operate,” Denizens said in a press release. “In response to the pandemic, Denizens has been simplifying their business operations to focus on beer, brewing, and distribution. Catalyst Hot Dogs responded to the pandemic by striking out on their own. As a result, they are meeting each other in the middle.”
Catalyst Hot Dogs owner Chris Van Jura was featured in a July 2021 episode of NPR’s The Indicator from Planet Money, which discussed businesses that were started as a byproduct of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Denizens Founder & Chief Brand Officer Julie Verratti said to the Source that the menu will replace the collaboration with All Set Restaurant & Bar and sister food truck Money Muscle BBQ at Denizens’ Riverdale Park location; the All Set/Money Muscle menu will remain in place at the downtown Silver Spring location. The new collaboration will include a kids menu, as well as a happy hour food menu to complement Denizens’ happy hour drink offerings, Verratti said.
“I grew up in New Jersey, and one of my first jobs was at a deli,” said Denizens’ Chief Beer Officer (and Short Hills, NJ native) Jeff Ramirez. “I’ve been a fan of the casual comfort food that can be found up and down the Garden State and how it plays a part in what it means to be from the Tri-state area. This new partnership with Catalyst Hot Dogs in Riverdale Park is nostalgic for me. Chris is elevating the ‘hot dog joint’ and also serving up some other Jersey deli and diner classics.”
“We can’t think of a better pairing than hot dogs and beer,” said Catalyst Hot Dogs Chief Hot Dog Guy (and Hasbrouck Heights, NJ native) Chris Van Jura. “We’re so excited to have a home for Catalyst that all the friends we’ve made over the last two years can visit anytime, and we can’t wait to also serve our new Riverdale Park neighbors.”
