Folks in Franklintown, between Spring Garden and Vine Streets, want a supermarket, most people agree. The problem is where to put the store, said Warren Huff, senior Center City planner for the City Planning Commission. Just about everybody prefers that it be on somebody else's street.

PHILADELPHIA Amid a crowd of face-painted children and noshing parents, a small knot of old-timers gathered Sunday to gossip and reminisce at the 40th birthday party of the Weavers Way co-op.

And now a couple of hundred stalwarts held a picnic at Cliveden, a historic mansion in Germantown, followed by - what else?

"There's a need for a grocery store and a desire for people to support fresh local produce and products," said West Chester Mayor Carolyn Comitta.

By the time she reached the checkout line, the 44-year-old Chester resident had a cart brimming with chicken wings, bread, eggs, soda, and popsicles.

The other one - a nonprofit market called Fare & Square, operated by Philabundance - opened in the fall.

TWO SIGNS greet customers as they approach the front door of Serrata's Grocery Store in West Oak Lane: "No weapons allowed" and "Do not enter with mask or hoodie. " They sit at eye level - it's impossible to miss them. But a would-be robber ignored both of those warnings Friday and ended up dodging bullets for his brazenness, police said yesterday. Store owner Raul Serrata, 42, said he didn't have time to think when a masked punk entered his corner store, at 75th Avenue and Walnut Lane, with a handgun drawn and demanded money from him about 7:15 Friday night.
