Glassboro's Collegetown Shopping Center transformation continues at full steam ahead, with significant progress on the new LIDL, Chipotle and Chase Bank! We stopped in on Sunday November 22nd and have a photo update for readers!
The DLC Management Corporation indicates that a new tenant is coming to their Deptford NJ Property… Kids First Swim School!
I don’t know much about this business, but as the name indicates… its a kids swimming instruction facility.
DLC owns the Red Lobster/Olive Garden/Hobby Lobby/Burlington shopping center. Site plans indicate the new swimming facility will be in the same row of stores as Chuck E Cheese, and share the inside corner of the center with the Launch Trampoline facility. Many would remember this as the original location of Party City.
So get this… based on images I’ve search in the web… it seems they will be building and in-ground pool INSIDE the building.
This is a great trifecta combination of kid oriented business, which should compliment each other as families going to any of the three child focused places will see the other offerings and think “We need to come back and try…”
Their website indicates other locations for Kids First Swim Schools are (or will be) in Cherry Hill NJ, Aston PA, and Delaware.
Court of Deptford Amazing Rebirth
I’ve never met the management team over at DLC but I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with them and their turnaround of this property. I am a Deptford resident, and participate in their very popular town Facebook group, and I remember right before the opening of the Burlington Store (which started the rebirth) that many were complaining about this property… that it was a dump. Too many empty stores. While other property managers have been complaining about economy online competition impacting new leases, the folks over at DLC continue to make one deal after another. Congrats.
