Longtime Avenue grocery operation closes, will be replaced by international grocer

Northeast (Pollyanna) News trying their feeble best to avoid the headline...
ANOTHER LONG-STANDING NORTHEAST BUSINESS GOES UNDER!

Can we just call this dying region Trumpville and watch it fail?

Snyders was terribly mismanaged. Lots of expired product. They made their money selling alcohol to the bums. I'm excited for the Mexicans to take over and help clean up Independence Ave.

Oh good - you mean the Mexicans are finally going to clean something?
Can they start with their kids faces?

Snyder's was doomed by the profusion of Mexican groceries on Independence Avenue, each with fresher vegetables and better meats than Snyder's has lately had on hand. Not that long ago, Snyder's was one of the few groceries left where you could buy meat cut from "hanging beef," i.e. not pre-frozen. It has declined since then. RIP, 48 years was a good run.
