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 Cherry Hill Mall's $200 million makeover, while expected to boost the mall's appeal when finished, is taking a toll on merchants in the short run. Starbucks Corp. said yesterday it would close one of two sites there, and other merchants have noted a decline in shoppers. "Usually a lot of people walk around exercising in the morning," coffee drinker Ernie Alejo, sitting at the food court, said yesterday. "They stopped because of all the inside construction.

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.

Cherry Hill Mall - the first big enclosed shopping center in the Eastern United States - is getting a $100 million makeover and a high-profile upscale retailer, Nordstrom. 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. The long-sought Nordstrom deal was the key to PREIT's moving forward with the overhaul, which adds valet parking and a new mall brand: "South Jersey's fashion destination.

My wife and I had many adventures while in New Zealand on our recent honeymoon. We rode rafts down rivers and flew in a helicopter that landed on a glacier. We took buses, bikes, and ferries; we even took a train across the country. But my biggest thrill of the entire trip - besides being with my bride, of course - was stationary, free, and did not involve a human. It involved a sheep. His name was Tom. Tom was one of three sheep kept on the grounds of a bed and breakfast where we stayed on the North Island.

Before he decided to reinvent the grim Gallery at Market East as a fashion outlet, Joseph Coradino considered converting it into a standard, suburban-style mall. The CEO of the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust also thought about making it into a giant restaurant-and-entertainment venue, or even a full-price high-fashion mall. But none seemed right for a Market East corridor that had grown decrepit, but now bloomed with new money, construction, and hope. Coradino combined elements of all three to create a vision for the Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia, a $575 million development whose unveiling last week ended years of speculation about the future of the property.

Space is becoming a premium in Cherry Hill as applications for new development keep pouring in. "The entire township is hot," said Paul Stridick, township director of community development. "We are trying to accommodate them all. " Kennedy Health plans to break ground on a $50 million medical office building this month, and several pockets are under township review as potential "areas in need of redevelopment," which could lead to more businesses moving in. Stridick said he was running out of room along Haddonfield Road, one of the most sought-after addresses.

THE EAGLES may not be done moving players this spring. And while that might excite you, it has absolutely petrified those in charge of area stores that carry team jerseys. Petrified is the operative word here. Little inventory coming in, very little going out. "I don't know what Chip Kelly is doing," Frank Sanders, the store manager of Lids Locker Room in the Cherry Hill Mall, was saying yesterday. "So, yeah, I'm a little nervous getting anything in here just yet. " Nearby, Sports Authority is in a state of suspended animation as well, said employee Tina Lopez, saddled with an inventory of shirts of players no longer with the team.

It was better to be late than sorry for Daquan Bohannan of North Philadelphia as he braved the rain, bumper-to-bumper mall parking, and throngs of last-minute Christmas shoppers at the Cherry Hill Mall on Wednesday. He had a mission: Pick bracelet charms for his mother, Nicole, 41, at Pandora, which by noon was packed to the brim with customers, almost all of them men on the hunt for gifts for mothers, girlfriends, or wives. It became so crowded an employee was stationed at the store entrance, having customers sign a waiting list to get in. "I just remembered yesterday that I had a few last-minute things to get," Bohannan said as he stood behind a jewelry counter, perusing a catalog.

Less than a year ago, the former post office on Collingswood's Lincoln Avenue was an eyesore. It had been vacant for a decade and was becoming increasingly dilapidated. Now, it is the chic new home of Collingswood Music, another business contributing to the evolving hip personality of the town. "It's probably one of the last buildings in the area that hasn't been worked with," business owner Ted Velykis said. Some work remains, including putting up a sign. The borough lost a great deal of business to Cherry Hill Mall in the 1960s, and by the 1990s, Haddon Avenue was laced with vacant storefronts.

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.
