Residents of West Chester say they want to buy local groceries - and they want to buy them locally. That is the conclusion of a study released last week by the West Chester Food Cooperative. It's been years since the borough had a full-service grocery store - the nearest one is outside the borough border - and people have long talked about bringing one into town. "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.

The A&P was just three blocks from where Joseph M. Bail Jr. grew up in downtown Chester. A Food Fair was within about three blocks of the Bail residence, as was the Edgmont Beef Co., whose orange trucks would deliver groceries right to doorsteps. That was 50 years ago. Today, Delaware County's only city has nothing even approaching the level of a "grocery store. " "It's just shocking," said Bail, 62, now the city's police commissioner. At a time when food-market wars are raging in some suburbs, Chester transcends the government definition of "food desert," said Marty Meloche, a food-marketing professor at St. Joseph's University.

Funeral services were to be held this morning for Anna Miller Quinlan, who spent most of her life operating a small grocery store that she and her husband started back in the days when the door didn't have to be locked. Quinlan was 87 and lived in Gloria Dei Plaza, Newtown, Bucks County. She ran her grocery store in Olney for 57 years, well after her husband, Michael John, died in 1969. She operated the store until she was 81, and then moved to the country. "It was the quintessential mom and pop grocery store; they poured themselves into it," said her grandson, Edward Dougherty.

Gunplay on a North Philadelphia street critically wounded an armored-car guard who was shot in the head Thursday night while servicing an ATM in a neighborhood grocery, police said. But the shooting about 7:30 p.m. in the 3000 block of North Ninth Street, near Clearfield Street, initially reported as a robbery, was not a typical attempted heist, police said. Instead, it appears the guard, 29, whose name was not released, was the victim of an errant shot aimed by unidentified gunmen firing from outside the store at a 17-year-old male, police said.
