The Hamilton Township Zoning Board approved a plan to bring a Snap Box self-storage facility to former Cost Cutters site on Whitehorse-Mercerville Road.

The plan will renovate the existing 43,000-square-foot building and add over 38,522-square-feet in additional space, according to a statement from the township.

The building has been dormant since the Mega Dollar store closed five years ago.

No new businesses are set to open at the neighboring dormant shopping mall, which is under different ownership, but Mayor Kelly Yaede said in a statement that the owners “expressed a desire to have a preliminary conversation” about the future of the site.
