Vacant Acme store is sold


The old Acme Market building in Woodbrook, once a bustling part of the community, may soon undergo a face-lift and regain its vitality.

Nancy Schaffer, co-owner of Eddie's Super Markets of Roland Park and president of Roland Park-Victor's Market Inc., has purchased the nearly 17,000-square-foot building for an undisclosed amount from its previous owner, Giant Food Inc.

The building, in the 6200 block of N. Charles St., was closed in 1982 as part of Acme's 20-store close-out in the Baltimore area after failing to settle with two unions. Giant bought the building about six years ago. Schaffer bought it from Giant in November.

"I don't know what I'm opening yet," Schaffer said. "Maybe a supermarket like what I have now."
