According to store officials, less than one third of ACMES are profitable. With more competition entering the area, the new owners will milk the realestate for millions of bucks!! The ACME name will almost likely disappear.

Acccording to Philly.Com. Maria's sources have Brown's ShopRite interested in several Bucks County Acmes, if Sandy can get the leases cheap enough. Acme is history just like Genuardi's and superstale Superfresh
