Planet Fitness, Wing Stop coming to Toms River

Planet Fitness and Wing Stop both signed leases to open locations at the Toms River Shopping Center on Route 37 and just off the Garden State Parkway, R.J. Brunelli & Co. announced Thursday.

Both tenants are expected to open in the third quarter of this year. 

Planet Fitness, which will now co-anchor the Ocean County center with Kohl’s, is taking over a 17,867-square-foot inline space that was previously occupied by Modell’s. 

Wing Stop will be situated in a 1,500-square-foot inline space that formerly housed Liberty Travel. 

Brunelli made other announcements on Thursday, including: 

  • Dollar Tree signed a lease to take 9,977-square-foot inline space at Union Square, located at the intersection of Route 35 and Oak Hill Road in Red Bank. Dollar Tree is projected to open in the third quarter;
  • Bridge Life Thrift Store signed a lease to take 8,400-square-foot endcap space in The Marketplace at Matawan on Route 34 and Disbrow Road in Old Bridge. This will be the first New Jersey location for the not-for-profit store, which is expected to open in early September;
  • Tilebar purchased a 0.75-acre site with an 8,000-square-foot building at 443 Route 17 South in Paramus. The New York-based tile company – which currently operates nationwide distribution from New Jersey and Arizona hubs – plans a complete interior and exterior renovation of the former Casual Male building. The company expects to open at the site in the second quarter of 2022.
