Young Avenue ACME to close


Moorestown ACME shoppers will have to find another place to buy groceries come late February.

According to a statement released by ACME Markets, the company plans to close the Moorestown store located at 350 Young Ave. by the end of February. The store’s pharmacy will close on Jan. 19.

The statement says that closing stores that are not meeting company goals in today’s competitive and difficult economic environment is necessary for the long-term growth and success of the company as a whole.

Another location in Cinnaminson will be closed around the same time.

Moorestown residents can still access nearby ACME locations at 41 W. Main St. and 300 South Lenola Road in Maple Shade.
