In short, 42Freeway.com is a commerce blog featuring stories on new retail developments, roadway improvements, and interesting area events all with the goal to inform and promote the towns along Rt 42.
I noticed the Deptford Pizza Hut in the Target Shopping center has a large for-sale sign in front of the property, and a quick Google finds that the property is listed online for sale as a "former Pizza Hut" store. The odd thing is, when I called, the store is definitely opened and the woman answering the phone had no idea if they were closing
Almost as soon as Bed, Bath and Beyond moved out... Construction started on a new HomeGoods Store at the location we all know as the Barnes and Noble Center. The outside facade looks mostly ready but a quick glance through the windows shows opening could still be a ways off. No mention of the location on the website yet. Perfect timing for a store opening as one assumes they'll be ready to go for the fall and holiday shopping season
This beat up old house sits at a major intersection at Rt 41 and County House rd in Deptford, directly across from Wawa. Seems like a prime location and surprising that no one has grabbed it up for development. The grass is well maintained. Will do some googling on this when I get back home.
A new nationally based day-care center, Child Care Centers of America, looks to be nearing completion on Barnsboro Rd. The location is next to the Sawyer's Creek development, near County House Rd where Washington Twp, Gloucester Twp and Deptford meet. Looks like a very impressive and large building.
