Weavers Way GM Details Changes Coming Due to Renovation
Bulk items will be moved, a pop-up store will be present and the pet shop will be expanded.
Weavers Way could see its sales increase by 10 percent if all goes well with its renovations scheduled to take place this summer while the store is closed for about six weeks from mid-July through Labor Day.
According to a Newsworks article that quoted General Manager Glenn Bergman, who spoke at the co-op's general membership meeting Sunday, the co-op will operate a mini-shop daily in front of the Mt. Airy location for staple items like bread and milk and will operate a shuttle from the Mt. Airy store to the Chestnut Hill store.
Bulk items will be moved to the second floor, while health and beauty items will be transferred to the Weavers Way pet store at 608 Carpenter Lane (that store will be expanded).
Bergman said in a Shuttle article this month that equipment will be replaced as a result of the renovation. He also said the floor will be replaced, produce and meat offerings will expand and the bulk section will get larger.
The staircase will also be changed to open up the building a little bit more, according to Bergman. An elevator will eventually be put in that will bring customers up to the second floor, but Bergman said in the Shuttle piece that won't happen this time around.
