TOMS RIVER – The closure of the 7-Eleven at the corner of Route 37 and Oak Ridge Parkway might lead to bigger things.
The convenience store was found shuttered on June 27, permanently closed for business. It had a simple, handwritten sign that said “Closed For Business.” The closure seemed abrupt to those who frequented the location.
There are no plans before the township for the future of that property, said David Roberts, the township planner.
The township is aware of a buyer that has been picking up property in that location, including the 7-Eleven, but they have not made any plans public as of now, he said.
Several local sites were reporting that QuickChek would be coming to the spot. That information has not been confirmed.
