I live in Lafayette Hill and not having a grocery section at Target was new to me also as I am orginally from Alabama. We lurve us some Wal-Mart down in Bama!

There's a Super Walmart opening, or maybe already open, in Hilltown, north of Montgomeryville. That is/will be the closest Super Walmart to Philadelphia I believe.

Does anyone know why this is?

Are there any similar, affordable alternatives here to place like this?
Thanks!
There is a Super Walmart currently under construction in Willow Grove. It'll be on Blair Mill Rd just north of the intersection with Welsh Rd (Route 63). It's directly behind the Lowes/Sam's Club shopping complex adjacent to the PA Turnpike, across the street from the big Prudential campus.

I don't know when it'll be opening, but the building looks to be about 75% complete, and the road work surrounding it is close to completion. My guess would be January 2008.

While I love the Trader Joe's in Jenkintown, I find it to be way too crowded most of the time. It's just inconvenient that way. Too bad...

What about the Whole Foods store? I've never been to one.

I'm finding so many new places to explore here, and loving it! It's great to be living so close to everything.
Trader Joe's is surprisingly inexpensive - Whole Foods is a much larger store, built for a similar demographic as TJs, but with higher prices and more selection. Trader Joe's stores are just very small, like a local grocery.

I don't know about Hilltown, but as I said in an earlier post, there is one opening about a mile south of the Horsham Walmart in Willow Grove.

Thanks for that info. That will be really convenient if it will have a supermarket in it.

If I have my info correct, it will be a 24-hour SuperCenter. Judging by the sheer size, I can't imagine it not having a supermarket.

Unfortunately for those who like the convenience of the Horsham location, this new store is replacing the store in the Village Mall.

It'll be interesting to see how the Village Mall will handle that vacancy - that shopping center (it's not really a mall anymore) hasn't been the same since the opening of Willow Grove Park Mall in the early 80s.
