Have you checked the Yellow Pages for Glass Shops? Those are the places you need.

Michaels in Mt. Olive does custom framing and stuff like that, I think they cut glass. You could call them maybe?

Are you looking for A. glass cut to size or, B. having a piece of glass you already have cut to size for you?

If it's A. I have to believe there's a glass shop in either the Ledgewood / Roxbury area or Belvidere area if you can't find one in H-town proper.

If it's B. that may be a tough call. Even if you find a shop, they may not cut your glass and just about none will guarantee the result. The only place I know of that will cut glass you bring them is Mesko glass on Washington St. in East Stroudsburg.

Gheez, That's hard to understand. We have an old "Morristown Area" phone book (2009-2010) here at work and without looking hard at all I saw two ads for shops selling plate glass. 1/4" may be the sticking point.

Like I said, there's a Mesko Glass on Washington St. in East Stroudsburg, Pa that's cut 1/4" and 3/8" for me more times than I'd care to admit to. If you call them, they'll cut it for you ahead of time and you can just pick it up. They're open Saturday mornings. Should be about a 45 minute drive for you, but I gotta believe you can get closer to home.
