A chain of “super” convenience stores mounting a challenge to Wawa’s dominance over southern New Jersey will bring its fresh design, affordable fuel prices and signature fried chicken to Brick.
Royal Farms, based in Maryland, received approval from the Brick Board of Adjustment Wednesday night to build its newest location at one of the busiest intersections in town – routes 70 and 88 – at the site of the former Jersey Paddler kayak and outdoor store. The Jersey Paddler building, which currently occupies the site, will be torn down in favor of the convenience store building, which will face Route 70, and eight gas pumps with 16 nozzles to the side.
The store received unanimous approval after a lengthy board meeting. No members of the public objected to the project, though township officials sought information on traffic impacts to the area as well as upkeep of the store itself.
