Well, Miriam, to start: -A new jewelry store, Govberg Jewelers, moved into Suburban Square from Bala Cynwyd in March: http://patch.com/A-rJtF - A new restaurant, St. James Place, will be taking the Victoria's Secret spot: http://patch.com/A-rbCB I'll be doing an update on the shake ups in Suburban Square soon, though.

Who are you? We already know about Govberg and the restaurant. And I think we're looking for more information than you confirming that, yeah, this indeedy was on Facebook... Is this still Tom Walsh as editor? If so you have been doing a very poor job, sir. Alll I've been seeing is loads of "polls" where anyone can vote as many times as they want. People used to send me actual stories from this site. WTF?

Joe, I am Ardmore Patch's new editor; I started yesterday. I'm aware that those two stories are old news—I linked to old Patch stories about them—I also stated in the comment above that I'll be doing an update on Suburban Square business soon. Regarding this story, I did contact Apricot Lane and spoke with an employee; the information provided above is all they are willing to comment on at this time. Thanks for reading.
