A new shopping center with a Superfresh supermarket and 15 stores is finally coming to the corner of Route 113 and Lionville Station Road. Joseph Piccone, developer of the center, called the Shoppes at Lionville Station, said last week that Superfresh, a New Jersey-based supermarket chain with five stores in Chester County, had been signed as anchor store for the 84,000-square-foot shopping center. Uwchlan supervisors approved the shopping- center plan five years ago. The Superfresh, which is scheduled to open next summer, will face Route 113 across from the Pickering Pointe townhouses, east of Route 100. Piccone said he planned to build 15 stores around the supermarket.

A 90-year-old woman was injured Tuesday during an attempted purse snatching at a Main Line supermarket, police said. She was walking into the Superfresh in Gladwyne at 12:45 p.m. when a white female in her 20s grabbed the elder woman's pocketbook and tried to wrench it from her grasp, said Lower Merion Superintendent of Police Michael McGrath. The victim refused to let go of her purse and suffered lacerations of the arm from the purse's strap, McGrath said. The younger woman was accompanied by a white male during the attempted robbery.

Since its 2010 groundbreaking, the 51,000-square-foot building at 2nd Street and Girard Avenue that was supposed to anchor the final piece of developer Bart Blatstein's Northern Liberties vision has remained empty. It was a Northern Liberties dream deferred, possibly forever, especially after Pathmark's parent company, A&P, declared bankruptcy last winter. But Friday morning, rebranded as a Superfresh and staffed by 120 area residents, the new supermarket opens - offering fresh seafood from the Philadelphia Fish Market, regionally raised poultry and beef, locally grown produce, an in-store bakery, and a pharmacy with patient counseling, immunizations and free home delivery.

SUPERMARKET ANTI-LABOR? A&P is closing its SuperFresh warehouse in Florence, N.J., placing more than 170 Teamsters out of work. By moving the warehouse to Baltimore, SuperFresh has not only turned its back on the employees and their families, but also on the communities where these fine people live. The communities depend on these people to bring home hard-earned paychecks so they may pay taxes, support their families, and help build their neighborhoods. This is not only union-busting; it's community-busting.

When the thermometer dips below freezing, rock salt is an important commodity - but when the thermometer gets buried in snow and caked over with a few inches of ice, salt becomes more precious than gold. Throughout Chester County, this week's showering of snow and ice once again sent homeowners scrambling in search of salt for their walks. Local public works directors began borrowing from each other and praying the trucks would make it to them on time. And salt suppliers watched their collective blood pressure shoot to new highs as they tried to meet all the demands placed upon them by increasingly cranky customers.

Paul Lightfoot, marathon runner and local food zealot, is determined to change the way highly perishable, expensive-to-ship produce is grown and distributed to supermarkets in the Northeast and other parts of the nation. Starting in Yardley. As CEO of BrightFarms Inc., a big-picture company with a hyper-local focus, Lightfoot wants to "create beautiful local produce, near grocery retailers, that's thousands of miles fresher, and do it with the same food safety and year-round commercial volume as a large, centralized supplier might have been doing from a huge facility in California.
