News just in via Brendan McGrath at the Times of Trenton: a new Costco is set to open in Lawrence Township just outside of Princeton. The proposed site is 4100 Quakerbrideg Road (see map above), which is right on the Lawrence/West Windsor border, about a mile south of the Princeton town line.The news is either great news for local shoppers, who will appreciate another discount chain to help lower their bills. Or it’s more terrible news for local, walkable merchants, who will struggle to compete, and have steadily seen their business drain away to the car-dependent big box stores on Route 1.
Which is it? Let us now your thoughts in the comments section below.
