Pathmark to hire 150 in N. Libs.

"We most likely will have a hiring trailer"

Pathmark to hire 150 in N. Libs.


So, Bart Blatstein's Tower Investments isn't bringing in the Whole Foods grocery some of his Piazza tenants might have hoped for, at his development at the site of the Schmdt's Brewery up near Third and Girard.

But at least Pathmark (owned by The Great A&P Tea Co.) is a union supermarket, which pays benefits. Which ought to win Blatstein credit in some circles: he's a union builder, and Tower projects have won union funding in the past.

Groundbreaking for the 50,000 square foot store, which is supposed to anchor another 50,000 square feet of retail, is Tuesday."The Pathmark will employ approximately 150 people, combination of fulltime and parttime," Pathmark spokeswoman Michelle Kruchkowski tells me. But it's not opening for another year. "As the project gets closer to completion, we will most likely have a hiring trailer on the property."
