It’s fitting that a guy who is a runner, then found success owning running themed retail stores, would open a bar called “The Mile” in RUNnemede, NJ.
Big news in Runnemede New Jersey, as just last week the somewhat recently closed Antonietta’s Restaurant on the Black Horse Pike, officially changed hands.
The new owner is Dave Welsh who is a successful area business man, owning the four Running Company stores in Haddonfield, Mullica Hill, Moorestown and Medford. According to the Running Company’s “Meet the Staff” page, Dave started out as a runner himself, purchased the Haddonfield Running Company Store, and has continued to grow the business.
Within days of last week’s sale close on March 14th, the new Mile bar Facebook page is already up, and vehicles are on the lot getting the business ready for a May/June opening.
We’ve reached out to Dave, but we haven’t connected yet (I wanted to get the big news out!). Dave posted “We will be bringing you a great new bar and concept to SJ soon!“, but no indication of the direction.
Although… media posts indicate Dave was a big fan of Westmont’s “The Irish Mile” bar which recently closed after being sold to the PJ Whelihan’s group, and considering the color scheme on Facebook is green… makes me wonder if there will be some luck of the Irish in the new bar.
Good luck to Dave and his crew. We hope to be in touch with him soon, and get photos and video his upcoming plans.
