Cherry Hill’s Garden State Pavilions shopping center on Route 70 has several tenant changes coming up in the next few months, with 4 Wheel Parts and Boot Barn under development, plus Petco will be moving out to neighboring Garden State Park.
This is in addition to the Chick-fil-A coming to Garden State Pavilions which was approved last fall for the front pad site where a former Friendly’s restaurant is located. The existing Chick-fil-A location in the neighboring Garden State Park complex will close once the new store is developed.
So if you didn’t catch that… the two competing shopping centers are swapping 2 stores.
Garden State Pavilions is giving up their Petco and will be gaining a Chick-fil-A… and the Garden State Park complex will be gaining a Petco and giving up their Chick-fil-A.
There was no word if any future draft picks were involved in this trading! 🙂
Let’s run down the stories!

4WP – 4 Wheel Parts
We’ll start of with 4 Wheel Parts store as they already have their signage up at their very prominent “can see it from my car on Route 70” location in the shopping center.
If you weren’t into 4 wheel vehicles you may not realize this this a big deal… but 4 Wheel Parts is a global leader in truck, Jeep, SUV and off-road performance parts, with over 100 locations!
They maintain the nation’s largest inventory of off-road tires, wheels, suspension products and accessories!
And the Cherry Hill seems to be their first location in New Jersey… and really the Philadelphia metro area as from what we can see the next closest location is Carlisle PA.
They are hiring for this Cherry Hill location, so give them a “google”!
As mentioned, they are occupying a prominent location in the Garden State Pavilions Shopping Center, taking the very first store on the end closest to Rt 70 which originally was home to Old Country Buffet!
A Facebook post from April 11th shows the interior walls of store seems construction complete, and shelving and merchandise should follow soon.
4 Wheel Parts – Cherry Hill
2230 Marlton Pike W
Cherry Hill NJ
Boot Barn is a lifestyle retail chain focused on western and work-related footwear, apparel, and accessories for men, women and kids.
The stores offer a full array of boots, shirts, jackets, hats, belts and belt buckles, handbags, western-style jewelry, rugged footwear, outerwear, overalls, denim, and flame-resistant and high-visibility clothing.
The new Cherry Hill store will be located in the second building in from Rt 70, in the spot which previously was home to a Modell’s store.
From what we can see on their location map, Cherry Hill appears to be the first New Jersey location for Boot Barn, and will be the closest location for Philadelphia.
42Freeway has known about Boot Barn coming in to the Garden State Pavilions for months now, but we hadn’t posted at the time as we wanted to pinpoint the exact store location.
That being said, since them What Now Philly posted on this location last month, and in their article they say the store is planning for a late May opening.
The What Now Philly piece also says additional area stores are in the works, including Melville, NJ and Harrisburg, PA. Their second Delaware store will open in Dover in late July.
Cherry Hill is also home to a recently opened Duluth Trading Company store, which also features outdoor western style clothing. The are located in the neighboring Garden State Park shopping center near Costco and Wegmans
Chick-Fil-A Previously Approved for Friendly’s Location
Back in late 2021 a new Chick-Fil-A location was approved for the Garden State Pavilions, on the location that currently houses a closed Friendly’s.
The plan would be to demolish the Friendly’s building, and build a new Chick-Fil-A with dual drive-thru lanes.
42Freeway was aware of the Planning Board meeting at the time but wasn’t able to cover it at the time. Have no fear because 70and73.com has a story on the approval.
In a case of back of forth swapping of tenants, this new Chick-Fil-A will replace the existing store which is located in the neighboring Garden State Park Shopping Center.
Petco Relocating to Garden State Park Shopping Center
With all of the exciting news of new shops coming to the Garden State Pavilions, there is one piece of sad news as Petco will be leaving them… and setting up a new home just a few 100 feet away at the Garden State Park complex near Costco.
Store personnel tell us they are targeting a June opening at the new location… which is 100% new construction.
Coincidentally… the new Petco location will be in the same building as Duluth Trading which we just mentioned, in fact directly to them.
I think everyone knows what Petco is, but for posterity we’ll say this… Petco is an American pet retailer featuring pet foods, products, supplies and services… and even some small animals.
