Acme closed their Collegeville Shopping Center store and moved it to 31 W. Ridge Pike, next to the new Court At Upper Providence Shopping Center, a few years ago. Now it would seem the “new store” is under performing due to competition from Giant, Target and Wegman’s and will close by the end of February.
With the departure of Acme from Ridge Pike, the closest Acme stores within a 20 mile radius of zip code 19468 are Phoenixville, Norristown, Lansdale and King of Prussia.
The Wayne Acme is also on the chopping block along with three stores in New Jersey and one in Maryland.
Another big empty building! Ironically, the old store in Collegeville was doing much better! Just proves the grass is not always greener!
