Township officials have been hoping for some form of new construction at the site that would result in road improvements paid for by the developer. Rite Aid had received approvals to build on the site, but abandoned its plans.
In related news, Weis announced that it would invest $135 million this year towards 37 major projects, including four new stores and 32 remodels. (I'm not quite sure what the 37th project is.)
Weis currently operates 164 stores in PA, NJ, MD, NY and VA.
