Whole FoodsThe newest Whole Foods store will be opening in Wall, NJ, with the Grand Opening scheduled for this coming Wednesday, 4/13, at 9:00am. This store opening, located in the shopping plaza at 1933 Route 35, will mark the third Whole Foods to open in Monmouth County.

The 39,000 square foot store will employ 175-200 workers.

Michael Sinatra, a spokesman for Whole Foods has said, “It’s really accessible from a lot of communities and a great location for the year-round residents of communities like Wall and Spring Lake, and also easy to get to for the seasonal visitors to the shore. We’ve been hearing for some time that we have a lot of people from southern Monmouth County and Ocean County who travel to our stores in Middletown and Marlboro. Now they’ll have access to the same great store, a little closer to home.”

IMG_0978The Sandy-destroyed boardwalk in Long Branch, originally slated to be completed just before Memorial Day Weekend, held its ribbon cutting ceremony today, 4/1/16, a month and a half ahead of schedule. This early completion makes the City’s newest project ready for the NJ Marathon to be held on May 1st.

“We are in the 90 percentile as far as completion goes,” Long Branch Business Administrator, Howard Woolley, said. “We still have to get (Ocean Avenue) paved, finish up the concession stands and do some other detail work on that, but that has come along fabulously.”

After finalizing a $14.4 million contract with George Harms Construction, work on the boardwalk originated less than a year ago. The new boardwalk is much wider than the original and will include bathrooms and concession stands, as well as landscaping, LED lighting, and railing similar to what is currently located in Pier Village. The total cost of the project will be around $25 million – the largest the City has done to date on any one project.

There will be 10 access points from Brighton Avenue to Morris Avenue. There will be four handicap-accessible beaches at Cottage Place, West End Avenue, North Bath Avenue and Pavilion Avenue.

ClydesdalesOn April 7, 1933, in commemoration of the end of Prohibition, August A. Busch Sr received the tremendous gift of a six-horse Clydesdale hitch from his sons. Realizing the marketing opportunity they could present, an additional six-horse hitch was purchased and sent to New York for a small ceremony that drew a crowd of thousands as they trotted down the seats of NYC to the Empire State Building. Over the years, the Clydesdale hitch was increased to eight horses and a Dalmatian mascot was also introduced. Anheuser-Busch now owns approximately 250.

And, now, the legendary Budweiser Clydesdales will be visiting Asbury Park for the first time in 15 years. Horse and beer lovers alike do not want to miss this special event on Thursday, July 7th. The Clydesdales will make their trek from McLoone’s all the way down to City Hall.
