Ed Forler is Dave and Buster's Vice President of Operations, which seems to have him involved in all aspects of D&B new store roll-outs and when necessary, being a public voice for the company. This article is a quick read 20 questions style interview with Ed, where he talks about the new location coming to Gloucester Township, the Philadelphia location, their competition with Round 1... and more importantly, Ed's connection to the Delaware Valley. He has Eagles Season Tickets!
It's been widely reported that the Dave and Busters coming to Gloucester Premium Outlets is opening Spring 2020. But no one knows when the Round One venue at the Deptford Mall will be opening... until now. 42Freeway has literally translated the Round One Japanese Quarterly earnings report to get the expected opening date for the Deptford Mall store, and it's surprising. Also, this is a two-part post as we interviewed a Dave and Busters Executive who knows the business and our area, and I should be posting that Friday!
The planned Aldi Supermarket for Winslow has been under site development for a few months, and recently the first "vertical" evidence appeared as the steel frame has started going up. The location is on Cross Keys Rd behind the Panera Bread and Wendy's.
A second location of Primitive Axe opens this weekend in Blackwood's Gloucester Premium Outlets! "Soft" opening is this weekend starting with Friday, June 7th, and carrying on through the weekend! I'm mostly going to let owner Adam and his video commentary do all the work on this one! Check out the video in the article. As mentioned, this is the second location with the first one located on Rt 47 in Glassboro NJ!
On Sunday June 2nd, Mark from 42Freeway was a guest on area podcast "Small Bites". While it's an hour long radio podcast show, I was featured in the first 10 minutes of the show... so if you want to jump ahead to listen follow the link in the article to the show page to stream or listen via an app. I talk some history of my blogging, Bellmawr's Bass Pro Shops, new restaurants in Washington Township, future plans for the site and more.
The Burger King on Blackwood-Clementon Road is looking to upgrade the store in a big way by building at a completely new location up the road a bit in the lot between Filomena's and Rite-Aid. Many will remember the lot as the location of the former East Side Mario's Restaurant. No word on what becomes of the old Burger King.
