Over the past five years since opening their Bergenfield Furniture store at 12 N. Washington Ave., Bergenfield, Mario Millan and his son, Eddie Millan, quietly built a successful business in the borough.

Now, with their recent reopening at a new location 210 S. Washington Ave., the former site of a Chevrolet dealership, they are hoping to make some noise as a standout local competitor to national furniture outlets and discount chains.

"Because you are dealing with the owners of the store when you shop at Bergenfield Furniture, we can offer superior service and competitive prices in the convenience of our expanded new location," Eddie Millan said.

AUGUST 21, 2014, BY ELISE BRANCHEAU, SPECIAL TO TWIN-BORO NEWS

"Bigger may be better; but tiny is so much tastier."

It’s hard to disagree with this statement when you’re eating fresh sliders from Holy Cow Sliders, a new place to eat in Bergenfield.

Holy Cow sliders on W. Church Street at Railroad Avenue in Bergenfield can be identified by its black-and-white cow print paint job, photo above. Owner Marlene Arute, photo at right, serves customers.

Having just opened in early July, it is still new to the community, but people are already taking advantage of its quality food and its great prices.
