New Jersey extends deadline to apply for Homestead Benefit

Honoring Cherry Hill’s longest-standing businesses: Camden FlooringCamden Flooring.jpg
As we continue to honor some of Cherry Hill's oldest businesses, I'd like to recognize Camden Flooring -- another one of Cherry Hill's longest-standing establishments. Camden Flooring moved to Camden shortly after the opening of the Ben Franklin Bridge in 1926. A few years later, in 1932, the flooring company moved down the road to Cherry Hill. Its owners, the Sweigart Family, made their home right here in Cherry Hill, and today, brothers Rob and Steve Sweigart continue to run the company. 
With the help of the Cherry Hill Historical Commission, we have identified many businesses that are 50 years or older, and I will be visiting each of them in the near future to recognize their longevity. During the next several weeks, I want to highlight each of these businesses individually. Each of these businesses has become a living piece of Cherry Hill’s history, and I’m honored to be able to recognize their longstanding investment and presence in our community. Click here to read about this project in the Courier-Post; if you know of a business that has been around for 50 years or more, please let us know by calling (856) 488-7878, or e-mailing me at MayorCahn@chtownship.com.
