"Get ready for a taste of the local flavor. Our lineup includes the finest Jersey flower, pre-rolls that rep our style, edibles that scream hometown pride, concentrates that hit harder than the Turnpike, sleek vaporizers, and tinctures with that unmistakable Jersey swagger. This is cannabis with a side of local love."

In Fall 2022, the empty diner building was finally approved by the Evesham Township planning board to be transformed into Enlighten Health and Wellness . After having sat abandoned and fenced off for several months, this was a significant turn of events for a building that may have otherwise been demolished.

Gone are the old aesthetics of the Marlton Diner, which closed in 2022, and sat vacant and abandoned for several months.

For some context, here's what the diner, located at 781 Rte 70 W,  looked like in April 2023.

Just a few months later, a lot of progress was made on the new layout for the dispensary.
