West Windsor Shoplifting Lawyers
West Windsor Shoplifting Lawyer
West Windsor has one of the busiest shoplifting courts in Mercer County primarily because of all the retail stores along Route 1. Nassau Park Pavilion shopping center on U.S. 1 is home to Wegmans, Kohls, and Home Depot. Other stores along the highway include Target, Marshalls, and Lowes.
