CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles are opening their first retail store in New Jersey.
It will be located at a mall in the Philadelphia suburb of Cherry Hill — the Market Place at Garden State Park. That’s the mall that was built at the site of a former thoroughbred race track.
The new Eagles Pro Shop will open Wednesday and will be one of three official Eagles retail stores. The others are at Lincoln Financial Field and at the Rockvale Square Outlets in Lancaster, Pa.
The Eagles announced the opening on their website.
The team says a grand opening will be held at the Cherry Hill store July 27 and will feature former players, their mascot, cheerleaders, in-store promotions and entertainment.
