Acme returning to East Norriton after 22 year absence

Acme is replacing the ShopRite located at 25 East Germantown Pike in East Norriton. Acme last had a store in East Norriton in 2001. It was located where Big Lots is today in the Dekalb Plaza off Dekalb Pike (across from Suburban Hospital). According to an article from The Times Herald in 2001, Acme opened at that location in the 1970s and was closed when it couldn’t compete with ShopRite, and Genuardi’s moved into a new modern store on Germantown Pike (where Weis Markets is today).

While there has been buzz about this online, there is now an official document to confirm the switch. ShopRite is transferring its liquor license for the store to Acme.

We will work on finding more detail on when the switch will take place.
