The 'Hamaker corner'

Dateline: Thu 12 Feb 2009

As a fan of small business and local products, I was one of many who mourned the closing of Hamaker Pharmacy a year or so ago. The drug store was a corner landmark at 49th and Pennsylvania in the Meridian Kessler neighborhood.

I've also reported in the past on this space about development coming that way. It's been a long, drawn out process, but today one of the shop owners at 49th and Penn said the word is out: the block is being sold to investors who will tear down the existing buildings and put up new shops with condos on top.

More to come.
