Did it last a year even? I'm waiting for the new Naples joint. Whatever they are putting there.

Hey how come the ristorante is no longer in business? I wanted to grab some grub from the Valle San Giovanni ( http://vallesangiovanni.com ) area of Abruzzo Italy.

I believe the reason it is gone as well as many other businesses here is because they either did not do a business plan or did not do one properly. If you want to open up a business in Woodbury and keep it open for more than a year, here is the first thing you should do:

RESEARCH THE DEMOGRAPHICS OF WOODBURY FIRST!

And I am specifically talking about the people who live here, not the people who work here. If you do not have a business that appeals to and is affordable to the majority of the people who live here, it will not last. End of story. I understand that there are other reasons for businesses to fail like poor management or not starting out with enough cash to float the business for a while. But honestly, I have watched businesses open and knew which ones would close. For instance, the art store that sold sculptures and other things to decorate your house.$100 dollars for a stuffed snake? Not in Woodbury. Maybe in Collingswood or Haddonfield. Woodbury is not ready for that yet.
