Overcome by competition, Genuardi's in Exton is closing. All 100 full-time and part-time employees, however, are expected to continue to work for the supermarket chain. Genuardi's has stores nearby in Chesterbrook and East Goshen and soon will open stores in Pottstown and Kimberton. "We expect all of the employees are going to go to our other stores," said David Genuardi, special-projects coordinator. "It has worked out great for us so far. " Genuardi said the location of the Exton store in a small shopping center between Route 100 and Waterloo Road made access difficult.

Chemical Leaman Corp. yesterday reported a turnaround in its fourth-quarter earnings, but it experienced a drop in full-year profits because of a change in accounting procedures, a previously announced charge for environmental cleanups and other costs. Net income for the year declined to $619,755 from $1.1 million in 1987. David Hamilton, president of the Exton-based bulk-commodity trucking company, said that without the accounting change, earnings for 1988 would have been $2.1 million.

According to family members, Mr. Wolfington enjoyed telling how he and the driver of the company wagon, towing two or three carriages, delighted in finding back roads to customers' homes to avoid the toll houses on Lancaster Pike.

The opening of the Giant Food Store in Exton yesterday had a bit of everything. There were banners, musicians, a man in a dog suit - and pickets. The entertainment was planned by the store owners. The pickets came from a trade union unhappy with the food company's proposal to trim workers' medical benefits. The United Food & Commercial Workers Union does not represent workers at the new 54,000-square-foot store in Chester County, but it does represent Giant employees in central Pennsylvania who are on strike because they have been asked to give up some medical benefits.

The Exton Bypass, it seems, will have a single creator. A Delaware construction firm submitted the apparent low bid for a 2.1-mile stretch of the bypass yesterday. Last week, it was the apparent low bidder for the other, 3.4-mile section of the Chester County project. If approved after the bids are reviewed, James Julian of Wilmington will build both sections of the 5.5-mile highway that will bypass the heavily used Route 30-Route 100 intersection in Exton. Yesterday, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation opened bids for the 2.1 miles that will connect Route 100 with Route 202. James Julian's bid for the job was $35.3 million.

Don Rossi wanted country living with easy access to major roads. His wife, Marian Rossi, wanted a historic house. It was 1991, and the couple, recently married, were relocating to the Philadelphia area from upstate Pennsylvania for Don's job. So, the two spread out a map, pinned the most desirable areas, and happily settled on what they've christened Terra Sanctum, a circa 19th-century house nestled on a wooded wonderland in Exton. The one-acre property was once part of a larger tract owned by William Penn.

Some people, and some companies, look for stability when faced with tumultuous times. Exton-based WPCS International is trying a slightly different tack in meeting its challenges. WPCS, which says it employs about 250 in designing and building communications infrastructure, is diving into bitcoin. Or rather, the technology of trading bitcoin. In existence - virtually - for only a few years, bitcoin is digital money. No central government authority backs bitcoin, as the U.S. government does with the dollar and as other governments do with their currencies.

ViroPharma is no more. Done. Gone, including from the list that matters most: Philly50. The Exton-based pharmaceutical company was officially taken over by Shire P.L.C. on Jan. 24. Shire has a big operation in Wayne, but it is officially based in Ireland. ViroPharma was replaced by Beneficial Bank on The Inquirer's list of the 50 locally based companies with the largest market capitalization. "After thoroughly evaluating our strategic options we determined that this transaction is in the best interests of ViroPharma, our shareholders and our patients," Vincent J. Milano, ViroPharma's chief executive officer, said when the Shire deal was struck in November.
