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.

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.

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...

Three years ago, on the Saturday before Labor Day, Louis Eni, 63, Dietz & Watson chief executive, was kayaking near his beach home in Ocean City, N.J., when his wife came out on the dock and motioned him toward the house. His brother was on the phone. There was a fire at the Philadelphia deli company's warehouse in Delanco, Burlington County. "It was bad. As I'm driving up from the Shore, you can see the smoke from miles away. You go numb," Eni said. The refrigerated warehouse held all of Dietz & Watson's inventory ready for shipping.

For the first time in nearly a half-century, the Franklin Institute's Budd BB1 Pioneer airplane, a fixture along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, actually moved. It did more than move. This biplane floated - up from its display posts in front of the building. It twirled slowly in the sun about 20 feet in the air, and then gently descended to the ground. Bump. The Budd plane is one of the institute's great artifacts, conceived and manufactured in Philadelphia, and given to the institute by the Budd Manufacturing Co. in 1935, a year after the Parkway building opened.

By Elizabeth McGinley 'What," I asked myself, "am I doing here? I knew this place was a bad idea. " Having got smart as well as old, my husband and I are lapsed Do-It-Yourselfers. Recognizing that most of our household projects eventually call for professional rescues, we follow a new mantra: Just (Pay Someone Else to) Do It. But here I was, staring down the hangar-like warehouse of a store that is the last name in service. Its mantra is U-see It, U-Find It, U-Carry It Out. Oh, yes, and U-Pay for It, not really that much less.

On a sun-drenched Philadelphia day, Lynnette Shelley settled outside a warehouse at the Tioga Marine Terminal, paintbrush in hand. The warehouse didn't allow for much natural light, and to finish her masterpiece on the sixth day (on the seventh, she rested), she needed to see its vivid colors and make sure they matched. She touched up images of flora and fauna, and complex geometric patterns, until her donkey was resplendent. Let's backtrack a bit. On Friday, in celebration of the Democratic National Convention, 57 fiberglass donkeys are coming to town, courtesy of the Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee, the city Mural Arts Program, and ArtJawn.

By Al Taubenberger The roots of our nation can be found here in Philadelphia. It's fitting, then, that the roots of a promising new agricultural industry - vertical farming - are taking hold right here, not in soil but in water inside an unassuming warehouse in South Philadelphia. I recently hosted a City Hall news conference to promote the expansion of vertical farming, with the goal of establishing Philadelphia as the world's preeminent training center for this burgeoning business.

Philadelphia police are seeking three men who snuck into a North Philadelphia warehouse last week and stole 24 cases of cigarettes worth about $64,000, police said Monday. In a video released by police, three men are seen approaching the warehouse on the 100 block of East Hunting Park Avenue with a ladder at about 2:35 a.m. Friday. In the dark, they pried open a rear door, then went inside and stole the loot, police said. They then fled in an unknown direction. A black market in "loosies" and cheaper butts has expanded after the city imposed an additional tax of $2 a pack to help fund schools.
