A new look is on the way for the shopping center ahead of the arrival of the organic grocery in 2014.
While it’s still months before Whole Foods opens its doors at the Ellisburg Circle Shopping Center, the center’s ownership revealed plans to give the grocery’s home—and eventually the entire center—a major facelift, which were approved unanimously by the Cherry Hill planning board Monday night. Part of what Federal Realty Investment Trust (FRIT) representatives called at least a three-phase project, the improvements call for the old Geunardi’s façade—now a blank expanse of brick and stucco—to come down and be replaced by a mixture of brick, stonework, composite panel work and a swath of glass across the entryway. Along with an outdoor seating area, bike racks and a canopy over the sidewalk, the exterior work for Whole Foods is designed to …

With their first official Stroller Strides class, Marci Terris and Katie Bryan introduced Fit4Mom to locals at Challenge Grove Park.
When Marci Terris and Katie Bryan first met in Chicago several years ago, there weren’t a lot of options for staying fit. The two moms concocted a plan, donning their workout gear and heading out on what they dubbed “sporty mom walks,” to get moving and stay healthy. When the two reconnected after their families both moved to Camden County, that idea turned into a plan to bring Fit4Mom, a program that began in San Diego in 2001, to their new home. After months of training and planning, they officially launched with Stroller Strides, one of Fit4Mom’s programs, in Cherry Hill, with eight moms working out at Challenge Grove Park, doing everything from stretches to squats in the perfect spring air in a preview of what’s to come through the …

Cherry Hill liquor store owners say unbalanced competition could spell doom for small businesses.
Vishnu Reddy can look out the front windows of his family’s liquor store, Wine Legend, and see one grocery store that’s already become a major competitor in the beer and wine business. In a few months, he’ll have another big competitor another mile up Route 70—and one with another edge in convenience, after the Ravitz family bought Cherry Hill’s latest liquor license and announced plans to open a liquor store within ShopRite of Garden State Pavilions. It’s the doomsday scenario for his business, as he said when the township council passed an ordinance allowing sales inside large retailers, and a quiet Reddy stuck to that position after hearing the news another supermarket was getting into the business. “I’ve said what I had to say,” he …

The family plans to open a liquor store inside the ShopRite of Garden State Pavilions, according to a spokeswoman.
Grabbing a bottle of wine to go with a gallon of milk could be possible in just a few months at ShopRite of Garden State Pavilions, after the Ravitz family delivered the sole bid for Cherry Hill's new liquor license Tuesday. The Ravitzes' sealed bid of $501,000, which came through their subsidiary, Empire Liquors, LLC, was opened before a handful of township officials Tuesday morning, just after the bidding process officially ended at 11 a.m. The family will now get to work planning out the store-within-a-store concept, which ShopRite spokeswoman Karen Meleta said will remove some office space in the building and fit in an area that's previously been a coffee shop and a florist inside the Garden State Pavilions supermarket. “They're going …

A new ShopRite will open along the Admiral Wilson Boulevard in 2015.
The Ravitz family is taking a step out of the suburbs and into the inner city. After 40 years running Supermarkets of Cherry Hill, which operates ShopRites in Cherry Hill, Marlton and Mount Laurel, the Ravitzes and Camden officials announced a plan for the city’s first new supermarket since the 1980s, part of a massive shopping center along the Admiral Wilson Boulevard. With the city working to transform itself, it’s the right time to make the move, said Jason Ravitz, vice president of retail operations for Supermarkets of Cherry Hill. “My brothers and I are proud to be bringing a ShopRite store to Camden,” he said in a statement. “We recognize that there is a great need for a full-service supermarket in the city and have been trying for …

A major regional developer has signaled interest in the club, according to a newspaper report.
Woodcrest Country Club, which has been ordered by a bankruptcy trustee to be auctioned off, could be turned into a medical campus, if a major Philadelphia-area developer wins the bid on the property, according to a Philadelphia Inquirer report. Developer and invester Bruce E. Toll, co-founder of Toll Brothers, stepped into the process this week as a possible bidder, but wouldn’t consider trying to turn the property—currently zoned institutional—into residential, a representative told the Inquirer. The 155-acre property has been mired in debt stemming from an ill-fated clubhouse expansion, and Sun National Bank, its largest creditor, attempted to force a sheriff’s sale last year. Woodcrest filed for bankruptcy last May to stave off that …
