It’s very rare not see these stores in large malls like Freehold Raceway, Monmouth or Ocean County.
This can be a welcome addition for some fans.
There have been a lot of changes to the Howell Commons on Route 9 this year.
These are all good changes in my opinion.
Too often I share news of store closings in Monmouth and Ocean counties.
It truly is a breath of fresh air when popular brands like Burlington and Old Navy come to town.
For some time now, there have been empty storefronts between Ulta and Sally.
This is where Carter’s, The Sleeper’s Shoppe and The Children’s Place were located.
Hope you are ready for Howell Commons to become more fragrant as a standalone Bath & Body Works is about to open.
Now fans will no longer have to travel to the mall to get their wallflowers, candles and lotions.
This is not the only addition however. Bath & Body Works will have a new neighbor next door.
H&R Block tax preparation company will be right next door to Bath & Body Works.
While most of the Howell Happenings NJ Facebook page was happy with the news, others still want more.
One addition that several reviewers have mentioned that they would like to see in the commons is a grocery store.
Specifically, group members said Whole Foods or Wegman’s would be fine. Hey, you never know!
If you’re hoping to get into the new Bath & Body Works before the holidays, you might be out of luck.
While there are clearly preparations going on inside the store, it will likely be months before they are ready for a grand opening.
Watch this place.
