Is FoodSource in Bryn Mawr Closing Late October 2011?
File under comings and goings: residents affected by the ACME's closure and rebuilding efforts are telling me today that they have been told by FoodSource in Bryn Mawr employees that the store is closing either October 16th or the 22nd?
Their website www.afoodsource.com seems to be down and I called over to the grocery store and someone got so upset they put me on hold and then someone else answered when I called back and said they were surprised it got out.
They shouldn't be surprised, as they are the only grocery store between Wayne and Ardmore/Wynnewood - not that they are full service per se they are more specialty. Yes there is a Superfresh in Gladwyne, but that changed it's formula to a lot of prepared foods, so as someone who cooks I don't go there much.
I hope Patch and Main Line Times and Delco Times will follow up and I hope these employees have other stores they can go to. FoodSource is located on Lancaster Ave in Bryn Mawr and is actually in Haverford Township.
Anyway, that is all I know and this store has been rumored to have been closing off and on for a couple years now, only it seems for real.
It seems big box stores and the economy might be killing grocery stores too? Something that seems pretty basic and useful.
