I walked into a bar-restaurant on Broad Street on New Year's Day looking for an old friend and instead I found our new mayor sitting by himself, surrounded by people who didn't recognize him and had never heard his name. Jim Kenney looked perfectly at ease in his anonymity at a place called Bliss. He sat at the elbow on the far end of the bar that faced the floor-to-ceiling windows along Broad Street and framed the passing string bands and fancy brigades like a huge-TV/video-screen tuned to the Mummers Channel.

Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, owner of Exton Square Mall in Chester County, plans to demolish the site's Kmart building and replace it with a large-format organic grocery store.

Philadelphia-based PREIT also has identified a dine-in movie theater and a bowling-and-entertainment center as prospective tenants for the former site of a 118,000-square-foot J.C. Penney Co. store at Exton Square, Coradino said.

Rob Hertzfeld is a man on a mission some believe to be impossible: He is trying to plunk down an upscale supermarket and shopping center in Franklintown. 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. Enter Hertzfeld of the Franklin Town Tower Associates, the Philadelphia- based developer of Museum Towers, 286 upscale apartments at 18th and Spring Garden Streets.

PENNINGTON, N.J. - Gov. Christie on Tuesday vetoed legislation that would have nearly doubled New Jersey's minimum wage to $15 an hour in five years, calling the proposal a "radical increase" that would hurt businesses and consumers. Speaking in the produce aisle of a family-owned grocery store in Mercer County, Christie accused the Democratic-controlled Legislature of pandering "to folks who are uninformed because they neither receive the minimum wage nor pay it. " "This type of heavy hand of government, saying that we know better than the people who actually run these businesses, is the reason why in past administrations New Jersey has gotten less and less affordable," Christie said, standing in front of a stand of 69-cent bananas and various organic foods.

The Philadelphia Housing Authority said Wednesday that discount grocer Sav-A-Lot will develop an 18,500 square foot store on Ridge Avenue at Jefferson Street, where the agency also plans to build a 130,000 square foot headquarters to consolidate 400 empployees. The headquarters and the grocery store are meant to help anchor a major redevelopment effort in the area of North Philadelphia that PHA refers to as the Sharswood/Blumberg neighborhood. "During the development of the plan to transform the Sharswood/Blumberg community, residents told us a grocery store was a feature the neighborhood badly needed," said PHA chief executive Kelvin Jeremiah said.

HARRISBURG - Changes in how Pennsylvania sells wine will go into effect next month. However, consumers might not see wine in the likes of Wegmans and Acmes until Thanksgiving - if then. The sheer logistics of getting a new system up is going to be a challenge, according to those involved in both the licensing and retail sides. That process has been complicated by how quickly the measure moved through the legislature. Changes to how alcohol is sold have long been controversial in Pennsylvania, where liquor laws date to the end of the Prohibition and the state Liquor Control Board has held an iron monopoly over the sale of wine and spirits.

HARRISBURG - For the first time since before Prohibition, Pennsylvanians will be able to buy wine at grocery stores. Barely a day after it sped through the House and unexpectedly landed on his desk, Gov. Wolf on Wednesday signed a law to let hundreds of restaurants, hotels, and grocery stores sell wine. The bill takes effect in 60 days, though it might take months for consumers to see the impact. Besides granting by-the-bottle wine licenses for stores that already sell beer, the measure takes steps to loosen the state's oft-criticized control of the alcohol market.

Before, you could count on burning a few calories walking from your car to the grocery store, or roaming the aisles to load up on what you needed. But that notion has gone out the car window, as major supermarket chains and big-box retailers, such as Walmart, are investing heavily in online grocery and curbside pickup. And with good reason. Online-retail analysts estimate that U.S. consumers spent about $24 billion buying groceries online last year, or about 4 percent of their total grocery spending of $591.6 billion on grocery shopping, according to the U.S. Commerce Department.

BOBBY'S GROCERY in Point Breeze was a neighborhood fixture for 30 years. Bobby - Robert Lee Toomer - was one of the most popular figures in the South Philadelphia neighborhood. Customers loved him. He usually had a big hug for men, women and children, and a kiss for the kids and the ladies. The store at 20th and Federal streets featured hand-dipped ice-cream and if you had been a customer for any length of time, Bobby knew what you wanted before you could open your mouth. OK, one butter almond, one coffee, one rum raisin and two vanilla fudge swirls.
