The news of new retailers continues as I've caught word of a massive retailer with over 11,000 worldwide who is planning on moving in.

Bob's Stores moved into new digs right next to Primark.

Bob's was originally located on 537 near the intersection of 33. The retailer was a mainstay at that site for a long time.

When Bob's announced it was closing, many believed that the store was toast.

It turned out to be a good thing, as this move puts Bob's in a high-traffic area.

Lots of people have been wondering what is going to be moving into the old Bob's Store's.

As with any new business, there is a lot of red tape, and planning involved.

It's not surprising that it didn't take long for a retailer to take advantage of such a great location.

According to APP's What's Going There's David Wills, the Freehold Planning Board approved an application for a new grocery store.

I'll let you know when the move-in begins in Freehold.

Hey, how many of these have you shopped at?
