Proposal Calls for Liquor Store at Vitarelli’s Site in Cherry Hill

A Voorhees businessman wants to raze the building that held Vitarelli’s, a long-time presence on the 1200 block of North Kings Highway, according to a proposal before the township’s planning board.

The proposal is one of two conversion projects expected to go before the planning board at its May 17 meeting.

The township panel also will consider an application by Azura Surgery Center of Cherry Hill to occupy a vacant store on eastbound Route 70 near Conestoga Drive.

A 5,880-square-foot building at the Vitarelli’s site would be used for the sale of wine, liquor and beer, says an application from Prakesh Patel.

It says the site, which is accessible from West Tampa Avenue, would be upgraded “with new curbing, paving, sidewalks and lighting.” The plan also calls for an additional 2,000 square feet of green space at the property.

The business would operate from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, the application says.

The existing building was erected around 1970 to hold six shops. A deli at the site eventually expanded into Vitarelli’s, which closed in 2020.

Patel, who acquired the building for $500,000 in October 2020, could not be reached for immediate comment.

In a separate project, Azura would occupy a vacant building that previously held a Calico Corners fabric shop.

The facility would offer “vascular access procedures” for patients with end-stage renal disease, its application says.

It also would provide a range of “interventional radiology procedures.”

Azura currently has a Cherry Hill office on the 200 block of South Kings Highway.

A representative of the surgery center could not be reached for comment Monday.
