So, why can't Toms River get a Wegmans?

THIS is the only thing you want in the Kohl's plaza in Tom River. The building is definitely shaped like a supermarket because that's what it was at one time. I remember that the supermarket was so busy all the time, it was sad when it closed. What type of business would be a good fit for the Toms River Shopping Center? A Wegmans would be perfect in this spot.

A Wegmans would be perfect in this spot in Toms River.

It's a giant store and there is so much you could do in this location. There's a lot of traffic and it's right off of 37 and the Garden State Parkway entrance is. It's the perfect location for something great for Toms River and surrounding areas. Notice what I'm doing there, yes it's the perfect spot.
