Just another "special event" in the mall to entertain shoppers. Unfortunately, it's a way of life in Toms River.

Hhhmmmmm? A purse snatching at Stop & Shop, and now a robbery at the Ocean County Mall. Unfortunately, with the economic situation the way it is, I feel it's going to get MUCH worse. Let's brace ourselves, Ocean County, NJ. As Bette Davis said, "fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride."
