One of the empty buildings is an old bank and the other was Fins. These two buildings need to be something good for Brick. The Laurel Square Shopping Plaza is trying to fill stores. At Home is an excellent store. A supermarket is needed and Wegman's and Trader Joe's are wanted in this location.

Does Brick need another restaurant? It looks like some work is being done on at least one of these buildings. Is there any information out there, on what will be moving into these two buildings?

I do remember Laurel Square on Rt. 88 in Brick when the shopping plaza was full of stores when Kmart was there. There was a supermarket in that plaza and several listeners have said it was very easy to get to and convenient for residents that lived by the plaza.

So, the questions are, "Does anyone know what's going in here?" And, what does Brick need and want?" Let us know if you know. Here's a look at the Laurel Square Shopping Plaza and the two buildings.
