The Deptford Planning Board meeting for September included a presentation by the Burlington Operating Group to build a new IHOP restaurant in Deptford. The eatery is planned for Clements-Bridge Road, behind the Chik-Fila, which is also considered to be part of the Lowe’s Home Center property.
42freeway was not at the September presentation, but we did communicate with the Planning Board office to confirm the location. We were planning on reviewing the proposal in the Deptford Municipal Office, but could not get over the office yet.
The location choice could prove to be a good one. The Chik-Fila at the same location is always packed. Lowe’s brings in good business. The new Nemours Children Medical care facility will be bringing in families looking for places to eat, and Inspira purchased 30 acres across the street to build a not-yet-fully-defined Health Park. Even the old and neglected Pathmark shopping center could soon be seeing new life.
At this time we don’t know any details on timing of the IHOP store.
Meanwhile over at Deptford’s Home Depot, they will be getting a new Autozone store, but their eatery, the Old Country Buffet… remains closed.
