New Britain/Chalfont, PA
Aerial images of both stores are included below. Neither store currently appears on the blog. I was quite sure I had Warminster photographed but unfortunately I'm not finding any pictures. I have been to the store several times, and will return prior to it closing. I have never been to New Britain, which is often referred to as Chalfont. Both stores are set to close in November. Some comments have come in the last day about the news but have not been posted. Acme confirmed the news on their Facebook page just hours ago so it's safe for Acme Style to now pass on the unfortunate news.

A classic 90's superstore location. I'm not terribly familiar with the competition in the area. A former Genuardi's very close by is now a Giant. I've never gotten word that this store was in danger so this one came as a surprise. Did the relatively new Giant run Acme into the ground? All indications are the new owners are have significant success in turning around Acme's fortunes but apparently there are locations that are just too far gone.

Not sure if this store was ever successful. Opened sometime in the early 2000's. I have been told repeated for years that this store would be closing. Well, the day has finally arrived. Particularly sad to see such a new Acme dying off although Alberstons didn't have the best track record for picking new store locations during their first round of running the company.
