Acme Markets And The Goldenberg Group Announce New Philadelphia Store At Snyder Plaza Shopping Center
PHILADELPHIA – (December 1, 2016) – ACME Markets and real estate development firm, The Goldenberg Group, announce the signing of a lease to construct a new supermarket in the City of Philadelphia. The new full-line grocery market will be located in the Snyder Plaza Shopping Center and will serve the Pennsport and Whitman neighborhoods as well as the greater Center City area. The new ACME will include both Starbucks coffee, as well as a beer and wine shop.
The new South Philadelphia store will offer an expansive variety of the freshest produce, top-quality meats and seafood, and a large selection of natural, gluten-free, organic, and local products amidst a comfortable, inviting atmosphere. The building at 29 Snyder Avenue will be completely gutted and renovated to encompass the new ACME store slated to open in Summer 2017.
“Our new store will welcome our Pennsport, Whitman and Center City neighbors and we are thrilled to offer them a fantastic new shopping experience,” said Dan Croce, president, ACME. “From our product selection to the design and layout of the store, our goal will be to provide our customers with excellent service, convenience, and variety. We look forward to our opening next year and bringing the best of ACME to the community for many years to come.”
“ACME’s commitment to delivering an excellent all-around experience for our shoppers aligns with The Goldenberg Group’s goals of reinventing Snyder Plaza to not only provide the variety, convenience and quality of grocery and retail stores our customers demand, but to create a real connection to the community,” said Adam Rosenzweig, senior vice president of Leasing & Asset Management for The Goldenberg Group. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome ACME to its new home at Snyder Plaza, and we’re confident that its full-line of offerings will make this a beacon location in the City for supermarket shopping.”
ACME Markets joins Target, Marshalls and 20 other retailers on Snyder Avenue, conveniently located off Route 95 and Columbus Boulevard. The announcement of ACME Markets is the latest step in The Goldenberg Group’s multi-year plan to enhance Snyder Plaza. In addition to new stores and other capital improvements, plans include the creation of public spaces, improved walkways and better connections to the neighborhoods.
The above transaction was arranged by Richard Weinberg of CBRE.
