Work on Ocean Township's two newest businesses is progressing quickly.
Sierra Trading Post, an outdoor apparel retailer, and HomeSense, which is similar to its sister store HomeGoods located across Route 66, will be opening soon in the Seaview Square Shopping Center.
"Both stores are working high speed in order to open mid-summer," according to the Ocean Township municipal web site.
The old Value City Department Store was demolished last year to make way for the two stores as well as a third store. The third store is said to be an Aldi supermarket, but the lease for that space has not yet been finalized.
