Something none of us like to see in Jersey is store closures.

Whether it's a local mom-and-pop business, or a bigger chain, seeing closures in our state brings with it a lot of pain.

People were shocked to learn that Stop and Shop announced it was closing stores across the Garden State.

More on that right here. 

Recently, a coworker of mine went to try and grab a bite to eat at the Vorhees, Diner but was greeted with locked doors.

That being said, in a world of closings when we notice something new opening up, it's a more than welcomed site!

A New Pizza Shop Plans On Opening Soon In Toms River, NJ

From what I understand this is actually the reincarnation of a once-popular pizza joint that was at one point located off 35 near Point Pleasant.

The steel building has been a staple on 37 just past Garfield Avenue since my wife and I moved to Jersey in the spring of 2022

That's what it looked like when we first moved here, and then at one point it just had a black-and-white sign that said "37" and nothing else.

I've always wondered what would come of this place, and now there's a new sign-up giving away all the details.

It appears as though The Spot Pizza And Grill has found a new home on 37 in Toms River.

At one point the Spot had a few locations around Ocean County and now they're reopening in Toms River.

You can never have too many pizza spots, and I can't wait to try this one!

No word on an opening date, but as soon as I find out, I'll let you know.

In the meantime, you have to check out these places.
