THINGS TO DO:
Attention Shoppers - There is a new outdoor outlet center in Blackwood.  Gloucester Premium Outlets opened a few years ago.  Located near the Blackwood Car wash and around the corner from Camden County College.

Believe only a Friendly's Restaurant there at the moment, with plans to add a Dave & Busters in the furture.
