TOMS RIVER – Two new businesses were announced to be part of the Ocean County Mall redevelopment: LA Fitness and Homesense.
These spots will take up residence in the retail hub portion of the mall, being constructed where Sears used to be. They will be across from the BJ’s Brewhouse and Restaurant that is currently under construction. The restaurant is expected to be open for the summer.
The LA Fitness is expected to open in the beginning of 2020. It will have 34,000 square feet, including a swimming pool and other amenities.
Homesense is scheduled for the second half of 2020, according to the mall’s press release. The retail spot sells such things as furniture, lighting, rugs, art, and décor.
“We are committed to reinvesting in the property including the look and feel of the center and LA Fitness and Homesense will be great additions,” said Tara Melodick, Mall Manager at Ocean County Mall. The mall will remain opened throughout the redevelopment and the entire project is scheduled to be completed by mid 2020.
