It's our final stop in Palmerton, a small town of around 5400. Today there's just one supermarket, the Country Harvest Family Market, which was previously a 1970s-era ACME. ACME moved there from this location just west on the main street through town, and Country Harvest may have been a move for the former Golden Key IGA between that store and this one. Though the former ACME today is religious offices, we can see the basic structure of ACME's storefront is still intact. Now from Palmerton we're headed about seven miles northwest to Lehighton, which has a small independent grocery store going strong right downtown just like Palmerton. Check it out tomorrow on The Independent Edition!
