Paramus Real Estate & Homes
Paramus is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. The borough is one of the largest shopping destinations in the country, generating over $5 billion in annual retail sales,more than any other ZIP code in the United States. Paramus has more limited shopping hours, as it has some of the most restrictive blue laws in the nation (even stricter than those prevailing in the rest of Bergen County), banning nearly all retail and white-collar businesses from opening on Sundays. The only exceptions are gas stations, restaurants and grocery stores, and a limited number of other businesses. More than 63% of Bergen County voters rejected a referendum on the ballot in 1993 that would have repealed the county's blue laws, though the Paramus restrictions would have remained in place.
Paramus was not always the land of enormous malls and shopping centers that has made it one of the top retail zip codes in the U.S. When it was incorporated as a borough in 1922 it was a rural area of celery farms and dirt roads.
New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Paramus as its 21st best place to live in its 2013 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey.
