Location: 195 N West End Blvd, Quakertown, PA
Opened in 1998
Closed August 23, 2007
Last week, Jason, aka Kapi, left a link to photos he had taken of the Quakertown store getting demolished. At this point, it looks like a majority of the front of the store is being removed with the remainder of the building being left intact. TJMaxx and HomeGoods will be moving in to the former Acme. Jason said he will be taking more pictures so we'll get to see how the conversion plays out. The photo above is how the store looked back in 2009. It remained in that condition until just recently. Below are photos Jason took over 3 different days in March...

The Acme in better days...
Sadly, this store only lasted 9 years despite Acme's presence in Quakertown for decades.

Quakertown's very first Acme on Fourth Street. You can see the tower and it's shadow on the upper right corner of the building. The store has since been torn down.
