Destinta Theatres closes Independence Plaza 12
HAMILTON, NJ — December 31, 2010 was the last day for the Destinta Independence Plaza 12 which opened in 1999.
Mayor John Bencivengo on Monday night said Hamilton has recently seen positive developments with local businesses but that Destinta’s closure “is a result of the national economy” where consumers are putting a “tight hold on discretionary spending.”
“It’s never a good moment when a business is closing, especially when it’s in Hamilton,” Bencivengo said. “We hope that (the Independence Plaza) center does well, and we hope it gets filled again, that particular movie theater.”
There is more in the Trentonian.
