Manasquan Property Marks Second N.J. Location for Blaine’s Jewelry Box
Blaine's Jewelry Box is coming to Wall Towne Center in Manasquan, marking the second area location for the family owned and operated jewelry store. The new lease brings the 100,000-square-foot grocery-anchored shopping center to 100% occupancy, according to Levin Management Corporation (LMC), the property’s exclusive leasing and managing agent.
Blaine's Jewelry Box is a full-service jeweler that has operated a successful retail location in nearby Brick since 1993. The store sells a wide selection of jewelry ranging from custom hand-made pieces to simple sterling silver items along with fine, vintage and estate jewelry. Watch and jewelry repairs are done on the premises.
LMC Leasing Representative Kendal Hand-Freda arranged the 1,200-square-foot Blaine’s Jewelry Box lease at Wall Towne Center. “Blaine’s Jewelry Box was seeking a well-located shopping center with an in-place tenant mix that draws significant, repeat traffic; this property checked every box,” said Hand-Freda. “As an established, locally owned business – with a loyal clientele – this newest addition will even further enhance Wall Towne Center’s ‘destination’ appeal for shoppers.”
Earlier this year, Wall Towne Center secured another new tenant, locally owned optical provider Wall Eyecare Associates (coming soon). Both lease signings reflect continued confidence among independent retailers. Within LMC’s leased and managed portfolio, recent activity includes start-ups as well as established concepts expanding operations or moving to improve location. “These transactions certainly underscore the continued viability and resilience of brick-and-mortar retail,” said Hand-Freda.
Located at 2433-2445 Route 34, less than one-quarter mile from the intersection of Route 35, the property is anchored by a 71,000-square-foot ShopRite supermarket and also includes Ocean First Bank, Joe’s Bagel & Grill, Master Park’s Black Belt America, Great Clips, AT&T Wireless and Wine King, along with a strong roster of local restaurant and service providers. Wall Towne Center serves a residential population of 130,000 people within a five-mile radius. More than 34,000 vehicles pass the property each day.
