Cherry Hill Mall a bright spot for money-losing shopping center operator

Cherry Hill Mall, Cherry Hill, NJ

The owner of three South Jersey malls has reported a multi-million-dollar loss for a fourth year running.

But Philadelphia-based PREIT said last year’s deficit narrowed to $160.1 million, compared to a $286.8 million net loss attributable to shareholders in 2020.

And company executives, while acknowledging the need to reduce debt through property sales, pointed to Cherry Hill Mall as a bright spot in PREIT’s operations.

The Route 38 mall has become the firm’s top performer after “tremendous sales growth” in the past year, said Heather Crowell, a PREIT spokesperson.

Cherry Hill Mall led all PREIT properties with sales of almost $1,000 per square foot in January, noted Joseph Coradino, the firm’s chairman and CEO.

Barclay Farm Shopping Center owner working with neighbors to make redevelopment more acceptable

Revised plans for the development of the Barclay Farm Shopping Center in Cherry Hill have been presented to the Preserve Barclay residents organization, which has protested a Super Wawa planned for the northwest corner of the center.

The citizens group has been meeting with representatives of center owner Kaiserman Company Inc. of Philadelphia to make development of the Route 70 site more acceptable to neighbors. The continuing negotiations come long before the proposal goes to the Cherry Hill Planning Board, which is expected in February.

Preserve Barclay is hosting a virtual meeting on Tuesday night at 7 to present the proposed changes and other options.

A revised Super Wawa plan would swap the site of the store with the gasoline pumps so that cars would be filled toward the middle of the parking lot, rather than near residences.

Kaiserman still would demolish the Barclay Pavilion office building and the former theater, now a pet supply store.

Chick-fil-A gets the nod from Cherry Hill planners to build on old Friendly’s site near Garden State Park

Trends in the restaurant business often embody the notion of “out with the old, in with the new.”

That will be evident near a busy intersection in Cherry Hill at Route 70 and South Cornell Avenue as the now-vacant and traditional Friendly’s restaurant will be torn down to make way for a Chick-fil-A with dual drive-through lanes.

The Cherry Hill Planning Board voted unanimously on Monday night to approve preliminary and final major site plans and bulk variances to build a new 5,147-square-foot Chick-fil-A after it demolishes the existing 4,727-square-foot Friendly’s, which closed in 2018 after 15 years. It is a permitted use under Township zoning ordinances.

An existing Chick-fil-A, without drive-through lanes, in the Garden State Park shopping center will move into the new facility, Clint Mattson, Chick-fil-A’s principal development lead, based in Atlanta, told the Planning Board. He noted the drive-through lanes are an important marketing focus for the restaurants.

Chick-fil-A could replace former Friendly’s in Cherry Hill

CHERRY HILL – Chick-fil-A wants to demolish a long-vacant Friendly’s ice cream shop to build another restaurant here.

The 5,400-square-foot fast-food eatery would rise in an outlying area of the Garden State Pavilions on Route 70 near Cornell Avenue, according to an application before the township’s planning board.

About 1,500 square feet would be dedicated to indoor dining for 98 patrons at the fast-food chicken eatery.

The restaurant also would offer outdoor seating for 14 people and a “drive-thru, multilane fulfillment facility,” the application says.

The planning board is expected to consider the application at its Dec. 6 meeting.

The Friendly’s restaurant closed in September 2018 after operating for more than 15 years at the Cherry Hill shopping center.

The site is about a mile from an existing Chick-fil-A — with curbside delivery but no drive-thru lane — off Route 70 in the Market Place at Garden State Park.

Chick-fil-A also has local sites on the 400 block of Haddonfield Road, across from the Cherry Hill Mall, and on Route 70 near Marlkress Road.

Chick-fil-A says the planned eatery will provide 70 to 80 jobs, with up to 18 workers per shift.

Amazon 4-Star and Warby Parker take space at Cherry Hill Mall

Two digital-native retailers have expanded to the Cherry Hill Mall in what is a continuation of online stores migrating into brick-and-mortar locations. 

Warby Parker leased 2,050 square feet and Amazon 4-Star leased 4,400 square feet at the mall, which is owned by Philadelphia-based PREIT (NYSE: PEI). Both retailers are expected to open during the first half of 2022, joining other online retail brands such as Purple and Peloton that already have a presence in the mall. 

The Cherry Hill Mall is 94.4% occupied. 

This will serve as Amazon’s first 4-Star store in New Jersey, though it does have an Amazon Books in Paramus. The new location is part of Amazon furthering its presence in traditional, physical retail. In this case, it uses Amazon 4-Star to showcase what it says are among the top-selling items from Amazon.com. The store will also sell Amazon devices and books.

Cherry Hill’s Short Hills Restaurant & Deli announces it is permanently closing

Short Hills Restaurant & Deli — a Cherry Hill institution for 25 years — announced on Tuesday morning that it is permanently closing, effective immediately.

“This past year and a half has posed many challenges,” owner Jerry Kaplan wrote on the restaurant’s Facebook page. “The pandemic, combined with my health and forthcoming retirement, has led me to make this decision — one that is the most difficult of my life. The beautiful memories are countless.”

The Jewish-style deli has operated in the Evesham Road commercial area of the Short Hills development, which formerly was a horse farm. A fire in March 2020 destroyed several stores in the same commercial area and the owner now is rebuilding. The restaurant’s building was not affected.

One store that burned was the Classic Cake Bakery, which has since been operating out of the Short Hill Restaurant & Deli. A note on the Facebook page states Classic Cake will remain in the store.

“From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for a wonderful 25-year run and allowing us to serve you and be a part of your happy occasions, sad occasions, and everything in between. It has truly been our honor,” the restaurant said in its Facebook goodbye.

The Facebook announcement was posted shortly after 6:30 a.m. and by 10 a.m. there were more than 60 comments about the closing, many of them memories of the food and special occasions.

“I’m so sorry you’re closing! Where will I get my chicken noodle soup when I don’t feel good? You will be missed!,” one woman commented on the page.’
