Deli Opens on Main Street in Lumberton
I drove on Main Street in Lumberton, NJ almost every day of my life. And many times while driving on that street, I think about how nice it would be if Lumberton's Main Street could have some restaurants or shops like the Main Streets in nearby towns Medford and Moorestown.
Then one day last week, I noticed a sign that said "Grand Opening." That sign was on a building on Main Street that used to be home to the Lumberton Post Deli and now years after that establishment closed, a new deli has opened.
The new deli, which is located at 579 Main Street, is called Not Just Subs and according to its Facebook page, it's open daily from 7am-2:30pm and serves breakfast and lunch.
Not Just Sub's Kitchen Manager, Christina Salvatore, told the Burlington County Times that in addition to normal deli items, Not Just Subs "will offer all kinds of specials, with at least one available on a daily basis."
According to realtor.com, the building that was home to Lumberton Post Deli was listed "on sale" in 2008 for $450,000. The property was sold in 2013 for $147,000.
The only other business currently located in "downtown" Lumberton is an auto repair shop called Always Running Automotive, although about a mile away (and closer to Route 38), there are several local businesses, including a convenient store called Pak A Sack, a florist called Amy's Flower Junction, and a pizza shop called Little Shop of Pizza.
According to a post on worthpoint.com, a restaurant named McGarrity's Hedgerow Inn was located on Main Street in Lumberton between 1902-1952.
An image of a postcard found on cardcow.com shows the inn and describes it this way, "Excellent food. Refined colonial atmosphere & hospitality. Ample parking. Air conditioned. Also cocktail lounge. Always a friendly welcome."
