In February 2011, the Fresh Grocer at the corner of Chelten & Pulaski avenues closed. Pat Burns the owner of the property is planning to build a strip mall with Save-A-Lot and Dollar Tree as the anchor stores. The project will utilize tax-payer funding. The Greater Germantown Business Association, Inc., along with community organizations and residents in the area, opposes the planned placement of Save-A-Lot and Dollar Tree stores on the corner of Pulaski and Chelten Avenues. We plan to collect 1,000+ signatures to be sent to our elected officials to halt this project. If you are AGAINST the Save-A-Lot/Dollar Tree project and FOR having a voice in all plans slated for our community, please add your name, address, and email.

***PLEASE forward this petition to EVERYONE you know in the NW section of Philadelphia. As you can see in the photo, renovations on the site have ALREADY STARTED. We need to get as many signatures as possible in a very quick timeframe if we want to have our voices heard!***
As an historic neighborhood, and designated classic town of greater Philadelphia, we are AGAINST the Save-A-Lot/Dollar Tree project and FOR having a voice in all plans slated for our community.
We petition our elected officials and institutions to halt this project, and ensure community involvement and approval in the development and direction of this project, which is located at a prominent intersection within our neighborhood and is utilizing tax-payer funding.
