Acme Markets intends to build a 1.4-million-square-foot warehouse and distribution complex near Reading, worrying leaders of the union that represents the company's warehouse workers in Philadelphia. Acme, operated by American Stores Inc., has two warehouses in Philadelphia that together employ about 750 in about 1.1 million square feet, according to Jim Brennan, president of the warehouse workers' union, Teamsters Local 169. The local, fearing that Acme plans to move those operations out of the city, will hold an informational meeting this morning at its headquarters.

A five-alarm fire engulfed a warehouse and four condominium apartments in Margate just before dawn yesterday, destroying the homes of four families and slightly injuring a police officer. The Atlantic County prosecutor was investigating the cause of the fire, which broke out about 5:35 a.m. in a construction warehouse at 108 N. Decatur Ave. A man from the warehouse ran up to Police Sgt. Edwin McMeekin and asked for help in evacuating two other men, who were sleeping in a small room in the warehouse.

Citing concerns for health and safety, two area congressmen want to put $9.7 million in the next federal budget to build a warehouse for flammable materials at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. Reps. Thomas M. Foglietta (D., Pa.) and Curt Weldon (R., Pa.) this week asked the subcommittee on military installations and facilities of the House Armed Services Committee to authorize $9.7 million in fiscal 1990 to replace a 50-year-old storage building. They said the warehouse, which holds flammable materials such as paints, solvents and metal cleaners, poses a threat to the environment because it is next to a basin that flows into the Schuylkill and, ultimately, the Delaware River.

There is no greenhouse at the Plant Outlet in Bala Cynwyd. The large stock of house plants is crowded into a nearly windowless warehouse where most of the illumination comes from overhead fluorescent lights, rather than daylight. Also missing is the controlled humidity usually found in greenhouses. The Plant Outlet's owner, Harvey Oxenfeldt, views all this as an advantage. His plants are already accustomed to the conditions in a home or office, which are vastly different from those in the greenhouses where house plants are grown.

More horns honked on the road leading to the Strawbridge and Clothier furniture warehouse yesterday. That's the only change since eight workers from the Teamsters local took over the plant Saturday to protest the loss of 95 union jobs when S&C is sold to May Department Stores Co. Officials at May couldn't be reached for comment, but with the official completion of the sale yesterday, the peaceful tone of the conflict might change as May's...

EVERYONE HAS guilty pleasures. I have three: chocolate/peanut butter ice cream, reading Christine Flowers on Fridays and shopping at the dollar store. The first guilty pleasure is fattening, the second is incendiary, the third is awesome. Awesome? Dollar store? (Did I actually use awesome? Am I 25 again?) Before I proceed: How much would you have to steal from a dollar store before it would be a crime? This is why the dollar store is a pleasure - prices lower than a rat terrier with fallen arches.

MIKE EROH wasn't about to let being laid up at home stop him from doing his job. Mike was the senior home-delivery manager for the Daily News and Inquirer in South Jersey and he had a phone. While recovering from hernia surgery, Mike would get on that phone and call the warehouse in Turnersville, N.J., every day to find out what was going on, what the problems were and how to fix them. Unfortunately, Mike never made it back to work. He died Thursday of a massive heart attack.

When the power was shut off at the Walnut Street Theatre's Port Richmond scenic and prop shop a few years ago, it could have meant trouble. But, there in the dark, producing artistic director Bernard Havard saw an opportunity. It turned out the landlord hadn't been paying the utility bills or the mortgage. So, rather than risk eviction, the Walnut bought the building - more than tripling its space from 24,000 to 85,000 square feet. "To be able to control our own destiny has always been a priority for me," Havard said.

As more shoppers stay home and buy by phone, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has killed plans to keep opening new U.S. stores at the rate of more than one a day, and is instead building high-tech warehouses that ship straight to consumers, including one with help from a Pennsylvania tax break. Wal-Mart boss Carl Douglas McMillon , who took over management of the largest U.S. retail chain (and Pennsylvania's biggest private employer) earlier this year, told investors last week he will cut $850 million from his new-stores budget in 2015 - and spend $350 million more on "e-commerce" facilities, including a second giant warehouse in Bethlehem.

Tears trickled from Rashida Ali-Campbell's eyes Friday morning as she watched volunteers turn old tires and empty beer cans into a haven for the have-nots in her West Philadelphia neighborhood. "Have you ever wanted something so much?" she asked. "So many people are helping make this dream come true. This is what I have prayed for. " Tires stuffed with hundreds of pounds of dirt will form walls. Old oven doors will serve as roof shingles. When she is done with what used to be a warehouse at 675 N. 41st Street, it will be a studio with a garden adorned with fruit trees and vegetables.

Mementos around her house might have raised intriguing questions about where Marion Flood Kaisla worked. There were the highball glasses with etchings of the StarKist advertising figure Charlie the Tuna. There were bottles of several varieties of Tabasco sauce brought back from the brewing vats on Avery Island, La. And strangely, bottles of experimental forms of Heinz ketchup, colored green and purple. "I thought they were disgusting," Mrs. Kaisla's daughter, Katherine A.

The only person criminally charged in the 2012 Kensington fire that killed two Philadelphia firefighters was sentenced to two years probation Monday after pleading guilty to lying to a grand jury. Richard Knellinger said nothing before he was sentenced by Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart to one year of reporting probation and one year of non-reporting probation.
