BIZ ROUNDUP: New Sears Outlet in Cherry Hill, tax deductions, more

A sears outlet has opened in the Garden State Pavilions on Route 70 in Cherry Hill. The outlet — next to Burlington Coat Factory — offers merchandise at 30 to 70 percent off regular retail prices.

The store features home appliances, furniture and apparel. The clothing can be marked down as much as 90 percent.

Some of the fridges, stoves and washer/dryers might have a little scratch or dent, but you might get a great deal.

Store hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.


Evesham's Hill International, a global construction management firm, announced last week it received a contract from the Iraq Ministry of Youth and Sports to provide services for the construction of the Al Samawah Olympic Stadium in Samawah, Iraq.

The 28-month contract has an estimated value of about $2.2 million.

Construction of the 20,000-seat stadium, designed to comply with FIFA standards, will cost about $61 million. This is the third sports stadium project in Iraq managed by Hill.


A security company owned by a former Evesham police officer set up shop in Camden last week.

Signal 88 Security provides services to a variety of commercial and residential settings, including apartment complexes, business and government buildings, shopping centers and malls, hotels, hospitals, and special events, says owner Jeff Gural, who served on the Evesham force for 27 years.

The company's customized security services include patrol and guard services, virtual camera monitoring, online real-time tracking and measurable results reporting.

I recently received an email from the U.S. Department of Labor that talked about seasonal employment spikes.

The release stated there are many workers and employers in the South Jersey area who are not familiar with temporary and part-time employment rules.

To help guide both workers and employers, the release provided a link to the department's Wage and Hour Division fact sheet that addresses some of the most frequently asked questions.
