Two exciting new dining options for Washington Township are getting close to opening, and the are actively hiring right now! Chipotle and First Watch are finishing up construction on Egg Harbor Road, at the Acme Shopping Center. We don't have the date yet as to when they are opening, but it looks like Chipotle will be opening first. Job links in the article.
The beloved Seven Star Diner in Deptford (at Five Point) is absolutely fine. They are waiting for indoor dining to resume, and no... they are not for sale. The real estate signs on Rt 41 and 47 were to promote additional buildings to be added to the larger property they own (the signs are now gone). Video in the article!
The Bobby Ray's Black Horse Tavern in Mt Ephraim is back under construction, not letting the events of 2020 change their plans! What has changed things up a bit is... what was hoped to be a remodel has turned into a full rebuild, with full use of a new lower level basement area! Currently at the site you can see the raised floor in place... raised to make room for the lower level.
In 2002 the Wegmans Supermarket company made a major commitment to Washington Township, by purchasing 30 acres of land on Watson Drive for $4.6 million. The Metro Commercial site features the property... 30 acres directly behind the Lowes Home Improvement store... with an asking price of $5 million.
Deptford's own John Eichenberg has just opened the Turnersville location of Crab Du Jour Xpress! Located right on the Black Horse Pike / Rt 42 in the former Wendy's building. They are offering a variety of seafood items (and other) from fried baskets and po' boy sandwiches, to full seafood boils! The core of this post is Mark's experience video... "Unboxing" and eating!
Things are finally happening with the new Super Wawa project on Clements Bridge Road! Underground utility work is complete, concrete curbing and sidewalks are in... and we should see the building start going up soon! 5 min video overviews the current site and how the traffic will flow in and out of the property, and a possible (much later) new cut-through from Clements Bridge Road and Rt 55 at Deptford Center Road!
