IF A supermarket worker doesn't have health insurance, how likely is it he'll see a doctor when he might be sick? The answer should concern consumers. Study after study shows that workers without insurance are less likely to see a doctor when they aren't feeling well than those who have it. And when it comes to supermarket workers, those without insurance may be placing customers at risk of food poisoning. Food poisoning has become a significant problem. President Obama, in his recent address on food safety, said cases of the disease have risen 250 percent since the early '90s.

German supermarket giant Lidl is building up a real estate team in Philadelphia, establishing the city and environs as a beachhead in its aggressive U.S. expansion, the company's first foray outside Europe. The discount chain, a unit of the Schwarz Group grocery conglomerate, is seeking an acquisition manager and three other real estate staffers in the city, according to its U.S. website. Another acquisition manager is being sought in Pittsburgh, while more than a hundred additional slots are open - for jobs ranging from store managers to human-resources personnel - in a strip of East Coast states between Virginia, where Lidl U.S. is headquartered in Arlington, and Georgia.

It was the kind of neighborhood decision city officials have nightmares about. Opposing organizations, each with valid arguments on their side, squared off against each other yesterday to demand a decision in their favor on the future of an empty lot. The subject was a proposed Super Fresh market at 19th and Hamilton streets in the Franklintown section. Passions ran high as 150 supporters and opponents crowded into the city Planning Commission's bimonthly meeting seeking a final vote.

In a move that effectively blocks a controversial proposal to build a supermarket on Maple Avenue, the Planning Board last night voted unanimously to change the property's zoning to a mixture of residential and light commercial. The zoning change, which planning officials said would be reviewed tonight by the Township Committee, would leave open the possibility of building strip stores along Maple Avenue but would prohibit the large-scale supermarket the Pennsylvania-based Goldenberg Group had proposed.

To outsiders, it might seem like just another grocery store. But to the residents of Pemberton, who say they must travel out of town to find a decent salad bar or fish section, today's groundbreaking of an Acme at the corner of Broadway and Trenton Road is a big deal. Banners are flying. Hot dog and ice cream wagons are stocking up. And the high school band plans on stopping by, as does U.S. Rep. Jim Saxton (R., Mount Holly). Township officials are expecting hundreds of residents to attend the 11 a.m. event, which they hope will signal the beginning of an economic revival for the Browns Mills business district, not to mention good produce.

When it comes to stocking the family larder, Barbara Gorenstein, substitute teacher, does not so much shop as forage. "I keep my money and my coupons and my shopping list in my purse at all times, and I shop whenever I see a market near the school I happen to be teaching at," said Gorenstein, who lives in Franklintown. "I have no real loyalty. All I need is a market and a parking spot. " Such shopping strategies are not uncommon in a city that, before October, hadn't witnessed the grand opening of a supermarket in its core for 20 years.

The Cinnaminson Planning Board last week put to rest the development proposal of CenterPoint Properties Inc. of Atlanta, which would have brought a 24-hour supermarket to town and wholly renovated the near-bankrupt Square 130 Mall. CenterPoint's five-month, 30-hour presentation testimonial attracted up to 90 people at times, spurring strong feelings among Rolling Hills residents who said the supermarket would generate too much traffic, noise and crime. The proposal included renovating a portion of the existing mall, which is enclosed, and constructing a 55,184-square-foot Pathmark supermarket and 22,806 square feet of additional retail space.

A 33-year-old Croydon man has been charged with robbery and attempted kidnapping after a bizarre incident yesterday outside the Giant Food Market on West Trenton Avenue. Police said Vincent Joseph Marino forced his way into the car of a woman, identified only as in her 30s and from Morrisville, as she left the market at 9:30 a.m. Demanding money, police said, Marino told the woman, "Cooperate and you won't get hurt. " The woman tried to satisfy Marino's demands, said Cpl. Gene Ross, by giving him her last $20. But Marino balked, Ross said, and ordered her to drive him to a nearby bank to withdraw money from an automated teller.

A new, bigger Genuardi's supermarket is coming to the neighborhood. And some residents aren't about to jump on the Welcome Wagon. The Abington Township Commissioners' Code Enforcement Committee Tuesday unanimously endorsed the 50,000-square-foot Genuardi's store proposed for the southernmost end of the Huntingdon Valley Shopping Center, at Huntingdon Pike and Shady Lane. The plans - which, Abington officials say, conform to the township code - are scheduled for consideration next Thursday by the full Board of Commissioners.

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - Gov. Wolf chose three Pennsylvania wines and a six-pack of beer, and paid in cash. Not far behind him in line was House Speaker Mike Turzai (R., Allegheny), who picked up a bottle of white. The two are usually on opposite sides of the political debate, but on Thursday, they had a meeting of the minds on making booze more accessible to consumers, hoisting flutes of champagne to toast the first bottle of wine sold at a Wegmans store in Pennsylvania. "Here in Pennsylvania, that is a really, really big deal," Wolf told the politicians, businesspeople, shoppers, and gawkers gathered at the supermarket in a Harrisburg suburb.

Plans to build a ShopRite supermarket on the Admiral Wilson Boulevard in Camden, a project that officials had said would create permanent jobs and provide improved access to fresh, affordable food, have fallen apart, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Instead, Actega North America Inc., a Delran-based company that makes coatings and sealants, on Tuesday was approved to receive $40 million in state tax incentives if it decides to build a 130,000-square-foot headquarters on the site.

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvanians may soon be able to buy their Thanksgiving turkey and a bottle of Chardonnay at the same store. In an unexpected vote Tuesday, the House approved a bill to let restaurants, hotels, and hundreds of grocery and convenience stores sell up to four bottles of wine to go. The measure cleared the Senate late last year, but languished untouched for six months. It hadn't even been included on the schedule of planned votes this week. Its passage, by a 157-31 vote, sends the bill to Gov. Wolf, giving him a high-stakes decision as he and the Republican-led legislature march toward a July 1 budget deadline.

We keep hearing that Philadelphia needs to eliminate its food deserts so everyone has easy access to fresh meat and produce. It's an important step in fighting poverty. But what exactly should a healthy neighborhood look like? That was the question posed by this year's Better Philadelphia Challenge, the student competition organized by the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The winning entry , by a team from the University of New Mexico, showed idyllic scenes of lush community gardens, compact urban greenhouses, and shady pocket parks, all sensitively threaded into a typical rowhouse neighborhood.

Shoppers once chose supermarkets for convenience, cost, customer service and quick checkouts. But a recent study found 83 percent of consumers pick only retail outlets that look clean to them, according to supermarket guru Phil Lempert . A full third of the people he surveyed have turned around and fled stores that seemed less than pristine. So just how clean is your favorite supermarket chain? The Inquirer, as part of its Clean Plates project , examined two years of health department reports for large grocers in Philadelphia and Bucks County.

HARRISBURG - Put down the corkscrews, wine lovers. A day after the Pennsylvania Senate approved historic legislation to let consumers buy wine in some supermarkets and restaurants, the leader of the House dashed hope of its winning the necessary support in that chamber. "It would not come close to passing the House," Speaker Mike Turzai (R., Allegheny) said Friday. "The bill needs improvement. " Turzai wouldn't spell out exactly what that improvement entailed, except to say the bill lacks any "meaningful divestiture" of the state liquor system.
