The Head Nut in Ardmore is prepping for Tiger Woods' arrival to the area.
As the U.S. Open gets closer, many businesses around the Main Line are prepping for high-profile customers to walk into their shops. For The Head Nut on Haverford Road in Ardmore, they're welcoming Tiger Woods to try their nuts, spices, coffee and candy. Lee Molineux, owner of The Head Nut, has been through two U.S. Open tournaments and doesn't see much boom in business during those times. According to Molineaux, he's more concerned about this year with business during the U.S. Open than previous years particularly due to the scheduled road closure by his business. But, he's still hopeful and he has developed a new sign for the shop during that time. The sign reads: "Yo...Tiger Stop in! Who let the bears out? Welcome U.S. Open"
