I was going to Delaware & went to Trader Joe's in addition to other places. A drive to Media & Ardmore would have been stupid.

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:
Cherry Hill's a hot property with developers





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.
Before I Goldberg, that space was an Acme.

The Marlton Trader Joe's used to be a Pepperidge Farm outlet many years ago.

I don't like the traffic or the parking there. I used to go to Delaware & saved my Trader Joe's shopping for there. It's an option. It's not that far & there's plenty of shopping in the area & you know what they say about Delaware. No sales tax.

Guess what the Princeton Trader Joe's has in common with only one other Trader Joe's in the state (quite far north I believe): booze! Coming from South Jersey I would much rather drive up there than to the Wilmington location and have to go to a soulless Total Wine for the best booze selection and prices close by.

Not sure how long it will take to convert the locations to the Aldi format, but the Cherry Hill location is sporting a coming soon banner out front.

I don't drink. I like tax-free Delaware over booze that I won't buy.

Are you trying to say that you're also from South Jersey? You've stated on other boards that you're from Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana.

An article about renovations being started at the Woodbury location, mentions that it could possibly open by the end of August. It also confirms that the nearby West Deptford location will close when the new Woodbury location opens. I am guessing the same will happen with Maple Shade when Cherry Hill opens.

After driving past the former Woodbury Bottom Dollar, it is obvious that remodeling is way ahead at the Cherry Hill site. I also found a marketing flyer for the Cherry Hill center, that lists Aldi as "Coming in July 2015". I guess an opening is closer than we thought. http://x.lnimg.com/attachments/5BE6C...5142ED0BC6.pdf

I wonder if Aldi would consider stores in Atlantic County?

From Aldi's store locator, there are no Aldi stores there with nearest Aldi's in Turnersville and Vineland. I can think of a couple of sites:

-Former rundown site of Acme in Egg Harbor City. Aldi could demolish and build a free-standing store.
-Hamilton Mall area, near Sears. There's a entirely vacant shopping center where Aldi could be a side anchor.
-Assuming part of the former Genuardi's space in Egg Harbor Twp.
-Assuming part of the former Superfresh space in Hammonton

Maybe Egg Harbor City, the first one mentioned, is even too downscale for Aldi though.

^^ I wouldn't be surprised to see them expand there eventually. Aldi is in the midst of an aggressive expansion plan. They plan to open around 650 new stores in the US within the next five years. Aldi details plan to expand in the U.S. - MarketWatch

Don't forget that we may also eventually see their European rival Lidl a few years down the line. They plan to launch by 2018 and it looks like they selected Virginia as their headquarters. Lidl confirms U.S. expansion | Retail & Financial content from Supermarket News
