High-Profile Businesses In South Jersey Closing

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.

    i call this when a nightmare meets reality! truly shocking for me. to say i loved denny’s and its grandslam breakfasts is an absolute understatement. i loved them soo much that when i would walk in the staff would yell, “bases are loaded and clean up is here!” of course, i would to explain the obsecure baseball reference to my braindead father. anyway, lisa and i had numerous hot spots for dinner such as frank’s, olive garden, chckie’s, etc. however, when it came to breakfast, we never strayed from denny’s. now, ill just have to stick my tail between my legs and see if IHOP will take me back after the infamous omelette incident of 07′.

    A friend and I stopped there for supper last night, and saw the Closed sign. I knew some of the serving staff there. I feel sorry for their plight.

  5. Greg says:

    They closed the Exton, Pa and West Chester, Pa locations years and years ago I am surprised there are any left in the area anymore.
