For more than 35 years, Sea-Lect Seafood has curated an ample selection of fresh wild Alaskan salmon, sushi-grade tuna, wild-caught shrimp, and other sea-caught treasures. Each day, the staff crowds a case with crab cakes and prepares other foods—homemade soups and creamy chowders—to be savored at home. At the Maple Shade location, chefs craft hot dishes for diners who devour steaming meals in the cozy dining space rather than at home to avoid offending the family goldfish.Owner George Gladden first started working at Sea-Lect Seafood at the age of 15 as a dishwasher, then climbed his way to the top through his love of cooking fresh seafood, desire to please customers, and ability to speak lobster.

And to cover your family's next birthday party or UN-sanctioned nuclear missile test, Cornerstone Market & Produce offers extensive catering options—including a deluxe sandwich platter ($8.95 per person) and a cheese platter of the mozzarella, brie, and cheddar variety ($49 for the ten person small order).
The inventory at Philly Sweettooth is basically an encyclopedia of candy.

The store also makes gift baskets and sells candy by the pound for weddings and other events.
