UPDATE and Question; What’s Going on at the Bayville ShopRite Plaza?
A while ago I wrote about how the back wall of a building was knocked out in the ShopRite Plaza in Bayville.
I believe most people, at least my friends and neighbors that live in Bayville - say, "The ShopRite Plaza." You can't see it from the front, but behind the building there's some major construction was going on.
The Berkeley Shopping Plaza is located on Rt. 9 in Bayville. ShopRite, Schiano's Pizza, Atlantic City Jewelers, and more are in the shopping plaza.
Here's the update that so many of you let me know about. You told me there was a car repair place coming there and it would've totally made sense because the back wall was taken down, it's back up now. Still a tire place and I believe oil change coming to the ShopRite Plaza?
Here's the new question, the back of the building is redone and closed up. I thought originally a car could drive through the building because they were keeping the back open, guess not?
The Family Dollar used to be there and an open store on the end of the plaza. It used to be a Movie Theater. Do you remember? A little history about the theater, it was called the Berkeley Cinema, owned by the Music Makers chain, which opened in the 1970's. In the mid 80's it was taken over by Loews and named Friendly Cinema. The theater closed in 1986, according to cinematreasures.com.
So, at the old Family Dollar, the back of the building or store is being ripped down. At one point we could see completely to the front of the store from the back. Lots of construction vehicles are behind the plaza and only on the other end of the ShopRite, there's work being done. Now the area of the parking lot is closed and taped off and we can't drive through the back.
Does anyone know what's going on in Bayville?
