'It's time,' the owner of the Ardmore institution said.
Sneaky Pete's, an athletic shoe and apparel store in Ardmore, is closing after 35 years of business. The store will likely shut its doors by May 1—or sooner, if remaining stock sells out, owner Franny Weinstein told Patch. Deciding to close was "a fairly long process," Weinstein said. "We've been doing it for 35 years ... there's a lot of things that factor in, but mostly we felt it was time to retire." Founded in 1977, Sneaky Pete's moved to Ardmore about 25 years ago. In that time, "many stores have turned over... very few stores are still the original stores from when we first began," Weinstein said. All remaining stock at Sneaky Pete's is on sale. The store, located at 5 W Lancaster Ave in Ardmore, is open:

The Italian restaurant, located at 260 East Lancaster Ave. in Wynnewood, closed on Sunday, according to management.
Buca di Beppo, located in the Wynnewood Square Shopping Center, has closed. The family-style Italian restaurant opened in September 2010 and shut its doors for the last time on Sunday, according to management. By Tuesday, the festive Buca di Beppo logo had been removed from the store's facade and a U-Haul truck was parked out front as people inside worked to pack up dishes and decorations. An employee at the store referred Patch to Buca di Beppo's corporate marketing director for further information. Calls to the restaurant's public relations company and Baker Properties, the owner of Wynnewood Square, were not returned by press time. Signs on the door simply read: The Wynnewood Buca di Beppo has closed. We appreciate your years of …

The Wynnewood restaurant, in business for 16 years, closed for the last time on Friday.
And just like that, a Wynnewood staple is no more: after 16 years in Lower Merion, Sam's Grill shut its doors for the last time on Friday night. The 2,417-foot space, located in the Wynnewood Shopping Center, is listed as available on the Federal Realty website. "Thank you," reads a sign on the restaurant's door, in bold lettering. The sign continues: Thank you to all of our devoted customers, neighbors and friends for 16 wonderful years at Sam’s Grill. We will miss seeing you and your families and hope that you’ll join us at our Center City locations, Devil’s Alley and Smokin’ Betty’s. Have a happy and healthy New Year! While the restaurant previously had a red scrawling "Sam's Grill" sign above its storefront, the lettering has been gone…

The Ardmore store will be one of the stores to close.
Ritz Camera & Image LLC, the 94-year-old Washington D.C.-based camera company, will liquidate its assets and go out of business, the company announced Monday. No timetable has been announced for closure, but the Ritz Camera in Ardmore has posted signs indicating that all stock is 20 to 40 percent off. Ritz, once one of the largest camera special supply stores in the country, has not been able to adapt in the age of digital cameras and online photo sharing. At a Sept. 6 auction, Ritz failed to find a buyer to keep the chain's remaining stores open. Two liquidation companies—Boston-based Gordon Brothers Retail Partners LLC and Northbrook, Ill.-based Hilco Merchant Resources LLC—were the highest bidders, Bloomberg reports. Ritz is also the …

Nearly New Consignment Shop, a Penn Medicine thrift store, will close for good on Friday after 51 years in Ardmore.
Nearly New Consignment Shop, the E Athens Ave store that just recently celebrated its 50th year in Ardmore, will close its doors for the last time on Friday, June 29. Employees of the thrift store, which benefits Penn Medicine, were told last month that the shop would be sold. "The building will be up for sale ... I think it's worth more to [Penn Medicine] to sell it," an employee, who declined to be named, told Patch on Tuesday. Nearly New, which sells gently used clothing, home furnishings and books, usually closes around this time for the summer and picks back up in fall. But the news that this time the shop would be closing for good came as a shock to the store's employees, as well as its customers. "Our customers are really upset," …
