It was announced earlier this month that the much anticipated ShopRite planned for Admiral Wilson Boulevard in Camden won't be coming after all. City officials announced three years ago that the supermarket would anchor a new shopping center, create permanent jobs and provide the community with access to fresh, affordable food.
An explanation for the deal falling apart from the developer or tenant was not provided to reporters. However, Actega North America, a Delran-based industrial company, was approved recently to receive $40 million in state tax incentives if it agrees to build a 130,000 square foot headquarters on the site. According to the company the move would create 21 jobs.
