NJ Court Upholds Citywide Business Curfew


NJ Court Upholds Citywide Business Curfew

by Robert Levy on May 6, 2013

Most businesses in Camden, N.J. must continue to shutter their doors at 11 p.m. Plaintiffs, including 7-Eleven, recently lost a lawsuit challenging the city’s curfew, which is established by local ordinance.

Under the city’s ordinance, businesses located within residential zones or located in a commercial or mixed zone situated less than 200 feet from a residential zone must be closed from 11 p.m. until 6 a.m. (the curfew is extended to 12 a.m. on Friday and Saturday). There are limited exceptions to the Camden business curfew, including pharmacies and gas stations. Businesses found in violation of the ordinance face suspension or revocation of their business license.
