Investor makes moves on Brewerytown supermarket

It's been a long time coming, but Brewerytown might finally get a much-needed supermarket at the intersection of 31st Street and Girard Avenue.

After a meeting held Friday, Oct. 30, representatives from Farm Fresh Produce and Poultry signed a letter of intent to purchase the triangular, 2.8-acre tract along the 3100 block of Girard Ave. from the Westrum Development Co.

According to Herman Rollins - who owns Farm Fresh Produce and Poultry with his wife, Judith - the Cherry Hill, N.J.-based couple will secure the land for about $2 million.

They hope to bring a 35,000-square-foot supermarket to the site in the near future.

"We have everything we need to put the market there," said Rollins during an interview on Monday, Nov. 2.
