“We are extremely excited to re-open and see so many familiar people,” says original owner and long-time Cherry Hill resident, Jerry Kaplan. “I can not say enough about our loyal customers, who stopped by often just to peer inside, and when the doors opened last Friday morning, they were there. Amid them I saw new faces, too. What a true compliment. Thank you!”
