Pennsauken Mart May Move

Pennsauken Mart May Move
The Camden County Board of Freeholders on Thursday endorsed relocating the Pennsauken Mart, a gritty and decidedly down-market shopping center to Willingboro, a community that's trying to bring its old commercial district back to life.

The match doesn't have universal acceptance.

"We have folks who are poised to do whatever's necessary to keep it out," Willingboro Mayor Paul Stephenson told The Philadelphia Inquirer for Friday's editions.

Stephenson said he has something more upscale in mind for the abandoned Village Mall on Route 130. The owner of that parcel, though, said he could fix it up with an $8 million to $10 million renovation within a year.

Camden County officials want to use the current site of the 120-store and stall Mart for a new $60 million arena.

The debate over whether to close the Mart and where its stores might go has been a big one in southern New Jersey over the past year.

Some call the civic center a boondoggle and say the Mart is more of a moneymaker than it would be. Others see the Mart as an eyesore that ought to be removed.
