Cherry Hill’s long running massive development project at the former Garden State Park property is closing in on another exciting milestone, as Trader Joe’s Supermarket, a very large HomeGoods store, and a TJ Maxx store are nearing completion… and have started hiring for employees! These three new buildings appear core development complete, and are located in the same area on Haddonfield Rd as the recently opened Shake Shack!
We aren’t clear on opening dates yet of the businesses, but it seems to be getting very close! Both TJ Maxx and HomeGoods have their signs up and the interior walls look complete. Trader Joe’s still needed a sign up when we visited early last week, but it also looked “construction complete”. The parking lots are paved, and in the entire new complex there was just one construction vehicle.
The location was originally being developed as residential housing, and in fact buildings were constructed along Haddonfield Rd and then tore down to make room for the new businesses.
About the Stores
TJ Maxx and HomeGoods are both part of the TJ Maxx family of companies. While internet sales is having a big impact on retail stores, the TJ Maxx companies are thriving and they have been aggressively adding stores in South Jersey area for the last 5-10 years and several more are planned. It seems their plan is focus on stores which have a higher need for people to physically touch and see the merchandise… such as clothing and home decor.
- Trader Joe’s is an industry darling in Retail and Grocery. Everyone loves them, and every town wants one in their community.
- Trader Joe’s has a “Crew for new store opening” post for the Cherry Hill store. Salaries are listed as $12-18 an hour!
- TJ Maxx store is a discount fashion retailer who are very well known in our area, and have been aggressively adding locations.
- Right now there are SIX different TJ Maxx roles posted online. Check their website for all job listings (search on Cherry Hill)
- HomeGoods is a well loved home decor retailer, and it seems this category of stores is booking with HomeSense, At Home, Kirklands and others making a big growth push into the area. While I am not an expert on HomeGoods stores, the Cherry Hill location appears significantly larger than the Deptford location. Near the Cherry Hill mall is a large At Home location, so maybe this larger HomeGoods store is because of that.
- TJ Maxx is hiring for a variety of positions including Assistant Store Manager. Check their website for all job listings (search on Cherry Hill)
