Montgomery Mall has a big empty space.  When Boscov’s reorganized a few years ago, the Montgomery Mall store closed and has been empty ever since.  Now Wegman’s has announced plans to become the newest anchor store at the mall. 

Wegman’s will demolish the old Boscov’s and build a new store.  The store will be 125,000 square-feet, which is the same size as the former Boscov’s.  The opening date will be determined by how fast Wegman’s can fit this new store into their schedule.  2012 is out but 2013 is in the running.

Wegman’s is breaking ground by becoming the first supermarket to open at a Simon Property Group mall.

Wegman’s has a store open in Collegeville and another store opening (Spring of 2012) in King of Prussia.

King Of Prussia Mall Adding 122,000 Square-Foot Building On Former Wanamaker’s Site

The old Wanamaker’s store at King of Prussia Mall will meet with a wrecking ball to make way for a new 122,000 square-foot building that will house 10 new stores.  The former Wanamaker’s store has been empty for some time now.

King of Prussia Mall is having a great year and the mall is looking to add more prime space to attract additional retailers.  The new construction will continue through the fall of 2012.

This is the first major redevelopment project at the mall since 2001 when the Pavilion was created at the Court in the former Strawbridge and Clothier store.

Pottsgrove Falcons Beat Strath Haven!!

After four years of losing to Strath Haven, the Pottsgrove Falcons finally won!  In a gutsy move, Pottsgrove went for a two-point conversion and beat Strath Haven 29-28.  If the Falcons would have failed to score, it would be been five straight years Strath Haven has shut Pottsgrove out.

The Falcons are 10-2 for the year and will face Phoenixville in next week’s district championship game.

We congratulate the Pottsgrove Falcons for their win over Strath Haven and wish them well next week against Phoenixville.
