Paramus is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 26,342, reflecting an increase of 605 from the 25,737 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 670 from the 25,067 counted in the 1990 Census. A suburb of New York City, Paramus is located 15to northwest of Midtown Manhattan and approximately 8mi west of Upper Manhattan. In 2013, it was named as a "New Jersey Healthy Town" under the state's Mayor’s Wellness Campaign.Paramus was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 2, 1922, and ratified by a referendum held on April 4, 1922 that passed by a vote of 238 for and 10 against. Paramus was created from portions of Midland Township, which now exists as Rochelle Park.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, 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 More than 63% of Bergen County voters rejected a referendum on the ballot in 1993 that would have repealed the county's blue laws, though the Paramus restrictions would have remained in place.
