It would be nicer if we could attract some more mainstream businesses in Havertown looking to hire local talent that makes better use of their college degrees then these retail outlets hiring wouldn't be "news" . Don't fret people, next up will be the Rita's on WCP. I'm sure they will be adding some "great" jobs too!

Hava: The types of properties where Krispy Kreme and Rita's will be located pretty much guarantee that the businesses that open there will be retailers. Would you rather they be vacant?? Instead of viewing the pie as only holding so many pieces, the reality is the size of the pie can grow. Just because low wage retail is coming to Havertown does not in any way prevent better paying jobs from coming. Let's get the vacant retail spaces filled AND seek ways to add more better paying jobs.

Hava: As a follow up, the real estate where the former Pathmark was located on Lawrence Road just sold to a locally based real estate investment company. They would not have bought it unless they have some plans to fill it up. The new owner focuses on medical/office, retail, and student housing. My bet would be on med/office.

Sam D - C'mon dude, don't preach rhetoric! Donut shops, Head Shops, Water Ice stands, Nail Salons, Pizza Parlors.....did I sum up H'town Retail for you?, Nothing worthwhile. Pathmark is Broomall, does nothing for my tax dollars, but perhaps will help the under/unemp around the township.

Hava: It's not rhetoric - I work in commercial real estate and I know very well what types of businesses are taking what types of space. So I'm curious, since you say retail in Havertown is "nothing worthwhile" - which I don't disagree with - what types of retail do you ideally see going into where the new Rita's will be opening, or on the retail block between Katz's and the Oakmont Pub? And as a follow up, how many of those types of retailers are actually expanding in this market? One thing I've learned is retailers have a heard mentality - first question I am often asked is who else is there. Which leads me to another question - do you honestly believe a White Dog Cafe would open in Havertown? Also, even though our demos and traffic counts are good, I believe we are hurt to a degree by our proximity to the Mainline when it comes to many quality retailers. Also, the facades of many of our retail buildings don't exactly scream "quality." As well, our parking stinks in many retail locations. Beyond all that, at the end of the day, many local landlord's are not necessarily super wealthy and can afford to hold out for their ideal tenant. In today's market, many/most just want to get the space filled and have a tenant to cover the mortgage. Regarding the Pathmark, I know very well it's in Broomall, my point in my head, which I didn't express clearly and you underplayed is JOBS.
