Not enjoying crowds, we did not go to the great “opening celebration” of Clark Commons this past weekend.

But plenty of other people did.

We have gone over a few times during the soft opening that has been going on with some stores since June. The other night we tried Smashburger. The food was okay, but the logistical flow of it was a little odd to me.

Now that the Whole Foods has opened, it will be interesting to watch what ShopRite does to meet the threat. They have already been busily renovating and doing a reset. Will it be enough?

And I am sure that Clark Township already has the increased tax inflows spent on a host of items that have been on their wish lists for some time.
