3 PA and 1 NJ ACME stores will be closing

KYW is reporting that ACME will be closing the following stores:
West Chester
Newton, NJ

Unfortunately I am not incredibly surprised about the Collegeville store, it has always been a rather odd setup, teamed with the area it is in and a new Wegmans opening down the street, I don't think it stood much of a chance.

Reports did advise that employees will be given the opportunity to transition to other stores. Personally, I would LOVE to see some of their customer service (ok at least 1) transfer to Royesford.

I am not sure what the overall plan is for emptying the inventory in these stores, but it will definitely be something to watch.
