One month ago today, Shana's Wild Fig Restaurant opened on the Black Horse Pike in the Historic Blackwood Downtown district. Owner Shana Mastranduono is so local she grew up in Blackwood and is a Highland High School graduate!! Shana has a very diverse culinary background and she carries that into her regularly changing menu. Italian, American, Mexican, Asian and more... she loves to bring her creativity to her dishes.
Popeyes Chicken locations around the country are being overwhelmed with customers trying to get a taste of the new chicken sandwich, including our Blackwood, Turnersville and Lawnside stores! The craziness is because... well word is, it's good enough to hang with (or beat) the Chik-Fil-A sandwich. In our area traffic is backing out on to the highways! We have our video experience review on YouTube!
A second location of Primitive Axe opens this weekend in Blackwood's Gloucester Premium Outlets! "Soft" opening is this weekend starting with Friday, June 7th, and carrying on through the weekend! I'm mostly going to let owner Adam and his video commentary do all the work on this one! Check out the video in the article. As mentioned, this is the second location with the first one located on Rt 47 in Glassboro NJ!
Primitive Axe hatchet throwing experience is expanding to the Gloucester Premium Outlets from their original Glassboro location. This could be a devastating combo of "Let's go throw some axes and then move over to Dave and Buster's for a beer and arcade games!"
AT&T Retail is moving into the recently remodeled building on the prominent corner of Blackwood-Clementon Rd and College Dr (in front of Zallie's Shop-rite). The site was previously a gas station.
The new Royal Farms Convenience and Gas store opened last week on Blackwood-Clementon Road, Gloucester Township. The building is the site of the former Super Fresh Supermarket (which was demolished to make room) and sits across from the new Republic Bank and the now closed Denny's.
