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.

Josh Evans went to the Cherry Hill Mall last week to try on shirts at Abercrombie & Fitch, look at shoes at Nordstrom, and enjoy a cappuccino at Starbucks. But he was mainly there to test-drive a 2014 Honda Civic Coupe. "Oh, this is nicer than I thought it would be," Evans, 24, of Erial, N.J., said as he slipped into the leather seat of the shiny black Honda loaded with a sunroof, red wheel trim, and a rearview camera. To see how it handled, he drove around the mall's 2.5-mile perimeter.

Can a paint job encourage you to dine in or do takeout? Saladworks believes so, and that's why the company is replacing bright, primary bold colors with earth tones for a warmer, more inviting feel at its stores, said CEO Paul Steck. The move also reflects how far the 30-year-old company built on salads has come from its humble start in Cherry Hill in 1986, to a chain of more than 100 stores in 15 states (mostly Mid-Atlantic) and four countries. Sales were $82 million last year, up from $80 million in 2014.

First, it's too warm to buy a new winter coat. Then, just when you need one, a powerful storm forces the stores to close. While many began the exhaustive task of digging themselves and their vehicles out, others stayed indoors, hoping the sun would do much of the work. As a result, the region's malls, restaurants, and bars reopened for business, but their customers didn't return in droves. Wendy Silverwood, 55, of East Goshen, Chester County, was among those who stayed home Sunday.

As of Monday morning, Michael Lefkoe already had logged more than 50 miles. "This year, my goal will be 1,200," says the retired Cherry Hill accountant, whose pedometer topped 1,100 in 2015. Lefkoe, 70, is a mall walker. Six days a week, he laces up his New Balance shoes - the black pair one day, the white pair the next - and heads for either Cherry Hill Mall or Moorestown Mall. He refers to the route he walks as a "course. " A grandfather of two, Lefkoe is part of a serendipitous, unorganized, and congenial community of men and women, most of them middle-age or older, who exercise and socialize for free in the early morning, pre-opening quiet of indoor shopping centers such as Cherry Hill and Moorestown.

Retailers across the region claimed a successful Black Friday weekend, with the heaviest traffic in years at area shopping malls. Although more people than ever are doing their holiday shopping online, two of the area's biggest malls reported substantially more shoppers in their stores than on the typical weekend. More than 95,000 people went through Cherry Hill Mall on Black Friday alone, said Lisa Wolstromer, the mall's team marketing director. That compares with the usual Friday mall crowd of about 25,000 shoppers, she said.

Black Friday was, by most accounts, mall madness. The annual shopping tour de force began at 6 p.m. Thursday at the region's shopping meccas and big-box retailers. With unusually warm weather and retailers' deep discounts, the public's appetite to buy, peruse, or eat remained strong all day Friday, according to retailers and shoppers lugging bags full of purchases. Long lines for parking spaces, restrooms, and checkout lanes didn't deter the crowds from steadily pouring into King of Prussia, Cherry Hill, Willow Grove Park, and Oxford Valley Malls.

You better not cry. You better not pout. And, if you want to see Santa at the Cherry Hill Mall, you better have at least $35. I'm telling you why: To enter the mall's Adventure to Santa holiday display, visitors must choose packages which range in price from $35 to $50 (marked down from $75), according to the mall's website, and include photos or, for the pricier option, video of the visit with Santa. But there's no sitting on Santa's lap without first paying the entrance fee. That's left some parents and children surprised and disappointed.
