One of the longest-tenured West Long Branch Consumer Centre stores is making a move.
Five Below, a store which sells everything from candy and toys to clothes and makeup will be moving across the plaza, located on Route 36, to the space once inhabited by PetSmart. The PetSmart moved next-door to a larger location as well.
The facade and sign for Five Below have been constructed and a sign states that the store's grand opening will be on May 19. The original store will remain open while the interior of the new location is finished.
West Long Branch Zoning Officer James Miller has said there have been negotiations with "high-end retailers" over the last few months to replace some of the larger closed spaces in the plaza, including Chuck E. Cheese and Sports Authority, but that nothing has been solidified at this time.
