Berlin NJ based A.C. Moore is closing all stores, parent company Nicole Crafts announced today. Of the approx 145 stores, up to 40 locations will be taken over by Michaels, Deptford has both craft stores located less than 1/2 a mile from each other so it would seem one of the two Deptford craft stores will close.
Fashion Retailer Forever 21 has filed for bankruptcy and put together a list of 178 stores they plan on closing. Deptford Mall, Cherry Hill Mall, and Hamilton Mall are on the list but there is a lot of hope they remain open. Company officials seem confident better lease deals can be negotiate. The status of the planned Gloucester Premium Outlets location in Blackwood is unknown at this time.
