Rumor: South Jersey Could be Getting a Dave & Buster’s
Sure, South Jersey (mainly the shore) is famous for its arcades where you can play video games and maybe win a stuffed animal... but what about a place where adults can play?
Dave & Buster's has been a fixture on Columbus Blvd. in Philadelphia forever -- it's a huge place where adults can eat, drink, play games, and win prizes and stuff. But, if you live here in South Jersey and you wanted to have that kind of fun, you obviously had to drive an hour to Philly.
Maybe those days will soon be over.
With a major tip of the hat to the website 42freeway.com, rumors are circulating that Dave & Buster's could be coming to the Gloucester Premium Outlets in Gloucester Township (that's right at the western end of the Atlantic City Expressway).
We should caution you that we are commenting on a story that, at this point, is completely based on rumors. However, those rumors seem to be pretty strong.
Should our dreams turn into reality, Dave & Buster's would be a mere 35 minutes away from, say, downtown Mays Landing.
42freeway.com speculates that construction could begin after the approaching holiday season and the new D&B's could open at the end of 2019.
And should anyone from Dave & Buster's corporate office be reading this, just a few weeks ago, we opined about how great it would be if Dave & Buster's moved into the soon-to-be vacant Toys R Us store (and the empty store next to it) in Mays Landing...
We shall see.
