Of the responses to a poll of local Woolwich residents which asked, “If you could choose what businesses to bring to Woolwich Township, which would you prefer,” the resounding message was clear; we need a more choices when it comes to purchasing groceries.
The largest portion of respondents (18%) requested these moreoptions by name (i.e. Wegman’s, Trader Joe’s, or Whole Foods), with three of the other “Top 5” responses also revolving around food options.
Listed in order of number of responses, those three are:
#3 – Fast-Service Restaurant options (i.e. Panera Bread, Chick-fil-a, Sonic, etc),
#4 – Dine-in Restaurant options (i.e. Steakhouse, or Mexican Restaurant), and
#5 – Coffee shop (i.e. Starbucks).
In fact, the only response in the Top 5 NOT related to food was the need for a Community Recreation Center (i.e. YMCA, or “Riverwinds” style center) which landed at #2 on the list of responses.
