MOUNT LAUREL, NJ (CBS) - The economy may be rebounding, but it’s apparently come too late for some recognizable business names in South Jersey.
Denny’s restaurants are still offering their Grand Slam breakfasts nationwide, but three of their locations in South Jersey have struck out. The Denny’s in Mount Laurel, Turnersville and Gloucester Township suddenly closed their doors yesterday. No explanation or comment from the company. A handwritten sign taped to the glass door here at the Mount Laurel Denny’s simply reads, “Closed.”
In addition to Denny’s, the Borders book store right down Route 73 in Marlton has announced it is closing its doors effective January seventh. 20-percent off store closing sale signs went up yesterday. A company spokeswoman tells the Courier-Post the store wasn’t meeting its sales objectives and there are no plans to open any new stores in the area. The Borders in Mount Laurel remains open.
This news comes on the heels of the Charlie Brown steakhouse chain closing its three South Jersey restaurants as it files for bankruptcy protection.
