Two Hillsborough shops are slated to close this year.
Though it’s news that Kmart and Blockbuster Video will soon close down shop in Hillsborough, it’s hardly unexpected. Comments on the Hillsborough Patch Facebook showed little wonder about either store closing, with residents noting that they preferred shopping at WalMart or Target or that they just get movies from NetFlix or other, similar services.
With the two empty storefronts, what would you prefer to see in the Blockbuster and Kmart spots? We’ve heard residents requests for a Trader Joe’s somewhere in town, a Retro Fitness, and your editor would love to see an Ulta somewhere closer than Warren, East Brunswick or Princeton.
What do you want to see in the vacant stores in town?
