Does this remind you of some old threads?

Ward/monica, Barclay shopping Center is on the other side of town. I don't give a rip what year S Klein built that store, but it was after 1964. I have something to do besides play musical stores with you.

I REALLLLLY wish they would put a Trader Joe's at the old Cherry Hill Bottom Dollar location. Can you imagine how much business that store would get? We already have a decent Aldi in Maple Shade, which is close enough, but it's a hike for Cherry Hill folks to get to the Marlton Trader Joe's.

I used to drive to the Delaware Trader Joe's because I hated the parking lot in Marlton that much.

Some of the ones in PA were closer you know... Media (though the parking there can really suck) and Ardmore come to mind.

I'd think a Trader Joes in Cherry Hill could be popular, but I'm not sure of the best space to accommodate the chain at the moment.

The old Pathmark space is still open but that space has a downscale element and isn't as visible. But a center's facade can change and people tend to find out where things are located generally by word of mouth.

There is the old I Goldberg space across the new Whole Foods Market, where a Mandarin Inn and Sleepy's closed. Sleepy's moved to Mattress Giant's space.

That area is nicer,near to 70 and more upscale shopping choices, but I don't think that combined two unit space is large enough. But I'm curious what could go in this relatively decent space given it's across the Whole Foods on Kings Highway. Maybe a few more restaurants.

This is a new article on CH retail space, but doesn't give enough info:

If one can, it's better to come in from the Starbucks side and not park actually in the spaces very close to the Trader Joes store, but close enough where one crosses the pedestrian walk.

The south end of the plaza was designed too close to Route 73. If one is driving on 73 N, coming up from Voorhees for example, even with a right turn signal on and going slowly, it requires a relatively sharp turn into the shopping center,which can be bad if there are cars behind that just want to keep a high speed. There are also not enough parking spaces and too many cars coming in/out in a tight space. That maybe fine for tenants like Sleepy's or Bombay Company (that used to be there before), but for a Trader Joes, it's too tight spaced.

Some that I know in Burlington end up going to the Princeton Trader Joes also.

Princeton (well not really Princeton but its suburbs) also has the biggest Whole Foods in the country, which used to be a Pathmark. It isn't THAT big of a Whole Foods, but is remarkable considering a number of Whole Foods, such as the one in Wynnewood PA (right outside Philly but in a rich area) are very small, about the size of a Trader Joe's or maybe a drugstore.

Anyway, as for that neck of "Princeton", one can tell the area is very rich because Marketfair Mall has no traditional department store anchors. One anchor is a Barnes & Noble which sets the mood for the mall near what perhaps is the nation's most prestigious college.

The Whole Foods in Princeton is only larger than most because it took over an existing Pathmark foot[print. I think the largest one in the country is in Austin, Texas.

As for Trader Joe's; ideally the best spot for it in Cherry Hill is adjacent to the Mall. They should place it right where the closed Bottom Dollar store is and let it serve as an anchor. With the addition of Red Robin, the entire Plaza needs a facelift with the amount of tenants it has.
