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.
Here's an update about the planned supermarket at 31st and Girard. Below is an excerpt.
