CHERRY HILL - South Jersey residents are preparing for the pope's upcoming visit to nearby Philadelphia this week.

Papal souvenirs are flying off store shelves at the Cherry Hill Mall in anticipation of Pope Francis as he wraps up his visit to Cuba.

Novelty items like pope bobbleheads and T-shirts are selling alongside rosary beads and figurines.

Some shoppers even posed for selfies with a 6-foot papal cutout.

"Of course he's going to want a selfie with the pope, but this is the closest we're going to get, so we figured we'd take the picture," said one shopper as her husband posed next Pope Francis' cardboard likeness.

The website popeswag.com is selling the cutouts for $90.
