The Applebee's empire in New Jersey grows with the start of construction of a new restaurant in Williamstown. Ground was broken just last week in the Walmart parking lot, in the corner closest to the intersection of Black Horse Pike and Malaga Rd (rt 659)
Noticed the sign this weekend, although I had been told previously it was coming. It will be located in the older shopping center where Sam's Bar is on the Black Horse Pike, and I can only assume it will be positioned right at the undeveloped corner. This also appears to be the first ancillary development driven by the new Outlet Mall opening this summer.
Bob's Discount Furniture Opens Thurs Feb 12, filling out the Barnes And Noble shopping center in Deptford NJ, and joins the recently opened HomeGoods store. Additional details can be found at an previous 42Freeway post.
