Thriftway to Close

The Gilbert family has operated the Thriftway at Pratt Street and Frankford Avenue for almost 37 years.  They will be closing the store this Friday, September 24th.

We thank them for their service and generosity to the Frankford Community.

At the Sept 9th Philadelphia Historical Commission meeting, representatives from Rite Aid of Pennsylvania, who owns the Holiday Thriftway property, actually requested another 60-day continuance, which was granted, so the commission has yet to make a decision regarding the designation.
