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.

"We have heard and value our loyal customers' feedback and as a result, have decided to remove the photo package purchase requirements.

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 Teary Eyez kiosk at Cherry Hill Mall stood empty Thursday, days after its owner was told by mall management that he could not sell T-shirts with a slogan protesting police violence. Management on Tuesday told Amir Miller, 30, that the shirt, which read "THIS HAS TO STOP" above an image of two police officers attacking a figure cowering on the ground, was "controversial" and needed to be removed. The mall was not open to negotiating, he said, and forced him to take down the shirts immediately.

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.

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.

It's all about respect, according to Amir Miller, who pulled his business out of Cherry Hill Mall last month after he was told to stop selling T-shirts calling for an end to police brutality. Since then, Miller has received a corporate apology. He was invited to bring his business, Teary Eyez, back to the mall to sell a variety of T-shirts again, including the ones that raised the controversy. He also is planning to open a shop in Newport News, Va., where the same corporation owns another mall, Miller said.

We are learning about Ben Simmons in increments and loving what we are learning. Out in Utah and Las Vegas earlier this month, we got an initial look at the first overall pick taken by the 76ers in this year's NBA draft, and it validated the comparisons to Magic Johnson. The 6-foot-10 Australian handles the basketball with a dexterity that is uncanny for a man of his size, and he loves giving it to others. This week, thanks to videos on YouTube and Snapchat that were circulated by an 18-year-old man from Camden, we learned that Simmons' affection for giving extends beyond his teammates on the basketball court.

Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust indicated this week that it was open to merging with another shopping-mall operator, raising the possibility that the Philadelphia company may join a wave of buyouts among retail-center owners nationwide. PREIT chief executive Joseph Coradino said at a real estate investment conference in New York that the company - owner of Cherry Hill Mall, among others locally, and a partner in the $325 million redevelopment of Center City's Gallery at Market East - would consider combining with another operator if such a move would be good for shareholders.

Maureen McLoone, drum major during the glory years of the Royaleers, last marched down Kings Highway in 1968. But she'll lead the formation once again Monday as former members of Haddonfield's pioneering all-girl drum and bugle corps, many of them grandmothers now, reassemble for the borough's Memorial Day parade. From 1954 until 1977, the Royaleers - originally called the Christ the King Cadets, later the Royaleer Mounties - were a parade fixture in the borough and beyond. The 100-strong, precision-drilled, spit-and-polish group took home regional and national trophies and exemplified the community's patriotism and pride.

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.
