Let's Talk Turkey on The Wayne Acme
SO, is the Wayne Acme in the the First Ward of Radnor? Why is there a hornets' nest over there? Public storage for cars? Sucky stormwater management? Billboards? Perpetual full moon? Someone asleep at their desk? What?
Even I have heard the Acme in Wayne rumors. Not that it would surprise me if it closed since most of the people who work there are incredibly lazy. And often rude.
Never-the-less, this grocery store is crucial to Wayne. So why isn't Radnor Township talking about this? And Baker Properties would flip that place in a heartbeat. And if they needed money, they are exactly the type of company that would post a billboard - after all their stupid Baker Property signs are almost billboard sized to begin with!
I have heard since the plans to renovate the Bryn Mawr Acme surfaced that Acme would dump that store. Guess they are moving up the time frame? What I heard (and it was from ACME people at the time), was when the Bryn Mawr re-build was complete, the Wayne, PA store would close. Mind you that was a while ago, and every time I go into the Bryn Mawr Acme employees ask ME when their store is closing for demolition and re-building...I personally don't believe Acme Markets is staying in Wayne, and I doubt they would tell the store employees the truth, because then the employees would leave ahead of time, right?
And who is this Matt Baumann quoted in this article? He sounds like an idiot. But then again, he probably likes billboards too. Yeah Matt, it sure would be unfortunate for ALL THOSE SENIOR CITIZENS who live in those apartment buildings near the Acme to lose their grocery store that was easily accessible.
Walking to the grocery store is also being green. Radnor promotes walkable communities it seems only if the spirit moves them and the daylillies aren't disturbed on Chamounix, right?
No grocery store in Wayne goes against the concept of having a walkable community.
