Back in the spring, we told you about the plans that German mega-mart company Lidl has been making for their first foray into the Garden State, which included plans for a location in Lacey Township.

Well, it's been 5 months since that first report, and not a whole lot is going on at the proposed Route 9 location.

So what's up?

While Germany's answer to Wal-Mart is building at a decent clip in other parts of New Jersey, including an upcoming location in Vineland that's already starting to hire, there hasn't been a lot to see for the locations that were slated for Lacey, Eatontown, and Hazelt.

According to a recent report in USAToday, all three are in various stages of planning, and in the case of the Lacey plans, possible litigation.
