Wegmans set to open late Summer/early Fall 2009

The Wegmans supermarket that is being built as part of the new development near the intersection of 29 and 422 is scheduled to open in August or September of 2009. From what I have seen and read, the Wegmans will serve as the anchor of the Providence Town Center development, which logically would mean that the rest of the shops would start to open at around the same time, a cool two years after it was originally scheduled to open.

Thanks to reader mvd623 who mentioned the update to the Wegmans site over in the Forums area.

Neat. I wonder if that will open before or after the one under construction below the Wawa in Great Valley.

Wow. The original date was spring 2008. At least it will get done. I drove through there the other day, I had no idea how much open land is there! I assume there will be more development and maybe even condos or somethign along with the shopping center.

I'm surprised it will take that long to finish up. The stores are being constructed now and a good amount of progress has been made already. But the roads there seem to be adequate enough to handle the additional traffic. As for the similar shopping center being built near the Wawa in Gret Valley ... who knows. They should expand Matthews Road and throw at least two more lanes there. That place is going to have residential areas too for apartments and condos.

Here's a link to a leasing plan for the Providence Town Center project. Keep in mind that the document is over a year old. I'm sure there have been some changes in the last 12 months. The last I read (some time ago) there were plans to build a retirement community along Arcola Rd.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
