ACME used to have a very significant presence in the Wyoming Valley, but was out of the area by 1995 when the remaining stores were sold to Penn Traffic (except for one, I think -- didn't Edwardsville stay open for a while longer? I could be wrong but I seem to remember that being the case). Anyway, this store is around 30,000 square feet and was replaced by a Gerrity's ShurSave when it closed. That store later moved next door to the former Kmart in Hanover around 2002.
Acme Style has posted on Flickr some beautiful old pictures of this store when it had the script logo, when it opened, and a later picture with the updated logo. There was also another ACME in Nanticoke, which was a pitched-roof store (see here for more). We'll be taking a look at the Gerrity's tomorrow, so head over to The Market Report to check it out!


  1. From what I recall, the Edwardsville Acme closed with the rest of the NEPA stores in early 1995. Penn Traffic already had an Insalaco's across the street, although I don't remember if the original Insalaco's closed in favor of a new store in the old Acme, or if the old Acme closed outright. I know the majority of the Gateway Shopping Center was empty in the late 1990's and early 2000's, and really didn't gain many new tenants until the property changed owners in the late 2000's.
