As word spread quickly yesterday of the impending closure of the Kmart in the Laurel Square shopping center in Brick, an announcement just dropped today of a new retailer that will be coming to the plaza.

I'll admit, I said that the closing of Kmart will hurt the plaza as the space that both Kmart and the former Pathmark occupied would now leave an awfully large vacancy, so it's only fair that I share the announcement that New York based Brixmor Property Group posted to Facebook this afternoon:

Describing themselves as "The Home Decor Superstore", a Brick location of At Home would be just the second in New Jersey, with the closest location being in Cherry Hill.

As you can see in the announcement above, as of now the timeline is just "Late 2018", but we'll be sure to keep you updated as things progress!
