Another suburban casualty has been logged in the sometimes frenzied bookseller's battles. B. Dalton, the sole bookstore in Cherry Hill Mall, closed Jan. 10, failing to renew its lease. Waldenbooks, of comparable size, is scheduled to fill the space on April 1. "This was not a competition issue," said David Altman, general manager for the mall. Barnes & Noble, the parent company of B. Dalton, is the largest retail bookseller in the country. Its urban tangles with other bookstore behemoths, such as the number two Borders, have spilled over into the suburbs in recent years.

Tony Reese of Cherry Hill would walk a mall to stay in shape. Tanned and trim and 73, Reese kept a brisk pace on a recent spring morning, marveling as the sun poured like juice through a skylight and spilled onto the freshly waxed marble floor. "Pleasant conditions, the most pleasant conditions," Reese remarked as he ambled along on his daily five-mile jaunt at the Cherry Hill Mall. "The temperature never changes in here. It's marvelous. The time goes by very quickly. " Ask him if he would rather walk outside, and Reese talks of cold gusts and car exhaust.

In a sudden, swift changing of the guard, the Cherry Hill Mall management dismissed 30 members of its cleaning staff and replaced them with a private company yesterday. The staff members - responsible for cleaning the food court, bathrooms and floors of the milelong mall - had no warning that they were about to lose their jobs. When they showed up for work, they were given severance pay and sent home. "It was a difficult thing to do, but something we felt had to be done," said David B. Altman, the mall's vice president and general manager.

The mall's makeover, announced yesterday, had been promised in 2003, when Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, or PREIT, the Philadelphia-based retail landlord, bought the mall from its developer, the Rouse Co., of Columbia, Md.

A $200 million splurge on Cherry Hill Mall during the depths of the last recession, when cash was poured into a full-blown renovation while many Americans were clinging to every last dime, appears to be paying off four years later, according to financial disclosures Tuesday by its owner, Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust. Sales per square foot at the mall reached an all-time high of $623 during the quarter that ended March 31, executives of Center City-based PREIT told investors, and a plan to refinance the property this summer could generate yet another payday for the crown retail jewel of Ronald Rubin's real estate empire by helping to pay down $2.3 billion in debt.

Police have seen arguments over parking spots at Cherry Hill Mall, but the one that unfolded Saturday when a woman nearly bit off another's finger has launched an investigation that authorities say stands out even among the department's more unusual ones. On Tuesday, authorities released grainy surveillance images of two women and two younger males. They hope someone will recognize them and provide their identities to police. "We've had disputes in the parking lot, but I've never seen anyone nearly have their finger bitten off," said Cherry Hill Detective Sgt. Rick Humes.

Had it not been for the multiple bags in each woman's hands, it would have been easy to believe Judy Dunn as she and her sisters griped, during a pause inside the King of Prussia mall, that Black Friday had lost its appeal as the Day of the Deals. "They're killing Black Friday, the retailers," said Dunn, a 55-year-old elementary school principal from Broomall, wagging a cookie in her hand before taking a bite. "The sales weren't there like they used to be. " "Black Friday is not the same," interjected Marijo Gannon, 43, of Broomall.

LAST YEAR, 6ABC weatherman Adam Joseph overextended himself a bit. After running around all morning as master of the Fan Cam at the 93rd annual 6ABC Dunkin' Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade, he went home and cooked a full dinner for his entire family. At least he didn't have to do the dishes. Joseph made it clear to me that he despises dishes. This year, Joseph is keeping it low-key post-parade, opting instead to dine at someone else's house, although he'll have his signature dessert, a play on an old recipe that he's deemed Adam's Apple Delight (check out the recipe if you're in need of a last-minute turkey day treat)
