Yesterday marked the end of an era for the former Pomeroy’s/Bon Ton department store just off Route 15 in Cumberland County. One of the best retail locations in the entire market, this store finally closed when Bon Ton closed all of its stores last year.
The site, which also includes Bonefish Grille and Texas Roadhouse restaurants, was acquired by the Lower Allen Township Redevelopment Authority to breathe new life into this highly visible location.
Springwood is excited to be developing a 124-room Springhill Suites by Marriott on this site. New retailers will also be joining the development. We are thrilled about the prospects for this new retail space, as upscale, conveniently located commercial locations are scarce on the west shore. We believe good things will happen here.
