For thirty years, Camden, N.J., population 80,000, hasn’t had a supermarket. Soon, that may change. Plans are in place to construct a Shop Rite on Admiral Wilson Boulevard, which Mayor Dana Redd said would “provide residents with accessible, healthy foods.” Realistically, it won’t be built for another couple years. Let’s just hope this really is an oasis in the food desert, rather than a mirage. After all, last year’s plans to build a Fresh Grocer have stalled. [CBS 3]
