One of the many Jewish business owners who were a part of Camden NJ in its glory days was Leo Spector. Leo’s was remembered long after Leo Spector closed his business on Broadway, for the distinctive sign that graced the building for decades afterwards. Leo’s also sold radios and appliances.

Leo Spector had a store at 307 Broadway as late as February of 1936. By 1942 he had moved his operation to 401 Broadway. He made his home at 1530 Wildwood Avenue in the late 1940s.

In 2002 the building was remodeled, and the sign removed. 401 Broadway then became the home of a Domino’s Pizza franchise and, later, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University.
