Update about the Save-A-Lot Opening

PennDOT in their infinite wisdom chose today to work right in front of the entrance to Astor Plaza, and they have the entrance partly closed off. You can get into Save-A-Lot's lot from Markley going south, but you might have to wait for the flagmen and it's a pain. If you're coming north from Roberts, turn left before the Citgo Station. Otherwise, you can get in from Logan Street.

I don't know if PennDOT will still have it blocked for the big Grand Opening Day tomorrow or on Sunday.

I checked out the store today. Reminded me a lot of the old Mad Grocer store that used to be there. Simple shelving, and BYOB (bring your own bags). Though, if you're one of the first 100 people the next 3 days, you can a really nice tote free. Mostly packaged goods, but their produce looked decent and they have a limited assortment of meats and dairy. The store looks great inside--new and bright.

Best of all, new jobs for Norristown.
