Creek Food Mart (in Newly Named “Creek Plaza) Set to Open in March

The new “Creek Food Mart” in Bellmawr (across from Bellmawr Lake) is set to open in March, 2021.

The food mart is the first tenant that will open in the strip that had been sitting mostly vacant and dilapidated for years.

All of the units there have been undergoing major renovations for some time now, and it is a welcoming sight.

We recently spoke with the owner, Harpeet “Bobby” Singh and he said that he bought the property last year.

In addition to the food market, Singh said that he is communicating with other potential tenants and “would welcome them.”

Singh who lives in nearby Deptford, said that the food mart is something he is bringing to Bellmawr because he would like to give the community something that is easy, convenient, reasonable, and affordable.

Singh stressed that town officials have been very accommodating to him as he renovates the property.

Of the renovations on a former eye sore and the potential for new business at that location, Mayor Chuck Sauter said: “We are so fortunate.”

I grew up down the street from here (in the “Dead End”) and it’s great to see new life being breathed into these stores.

We’ll provide updates as new tenants move in….hopefully soon!
