Shoprite of Whitman Plaza opening draws Mayor Kenney
Shoprite of Whitman Plaza finally opened yesterday, drawing visits from local Philadelphia officials, including Mayor Jim Kenney. Neighbors have been long waiting for the re-opening of this shopping center where Pathmark once stood.
The move of Shoprite from Snyder Plaza to Whitman Plaza means that Pennsport loses another shopping center, but Whitman neighborhood continues to develop and grow. The Oregon market is just next door to Shoprite and Aldi is only a few blocks away at 2603 S Front street.
