Have you been the ACME in Lantana Square recently? Well then you may have noticed that the remodeling process, which began in July of last year, is finally complete, and now the newly renovated store has been unveiled for customers to enjoy.
ACME celebrated the grand re-opening of its store in Hockessin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Jan. 18 at 9 a.m.
The company recognized long-time Hockessin store director John Donahue who recently retired from the company after 47 years. Several charitable donations were also made to local organizations including the Hockessin Fire Company, the Police Athletic League of Delaware, Friends of the Hockessin Library, and Cokesbury Village.
Dan Croce, the vice president of operations for ACME, hosted the grand re-opening event.
"Our Hockessin guests will see expanded floral, produce, meat, seafood, deli and bakery departments," Croce said.
The store will also house a full-service Tony Luke's and ACME's fifth dedicated gluten-free deli.
"There's a Wi-Fi seating area as well as a Bucks County Coffee area for guests to come in and grab coffee and surf the internet while they have a great lunch from our prepared foods section," Croce boasted.
Croce was joined by Delaware State Sen. Greg Lavelle, Delaware State Rep. Joe Miro, and New Castle County Council Member Janet Kilpatrick along with other ACME executives.
