Ok this for the locals, why doesn't this town have a decent supermarket? IE a superfresh, Clemmons etc.

Also why no resturants, like an Applebees, TGIF etc.

Aren't any of you tired of driving 20 mins to Exton, Wyommissing to get a decent meal or to buy your groceries?

Why is this town still stuck in the 1970's?

It is a bummer indeed. You can blame the Amish/Mennonite factor and the elderly country folks that are the original residents of this area. They hate progress and change. The Dutchman that owned the Wal-Mart property wrote into the contract that no liquor license could be obtained for at least 10 years in that development.

Brian how long has Morgantown Crossing been open for now? I have only been in the area for a little over two years.

I've been here about three years and it was built not long after I got here. It must have opened shortly before you arrived. Prior to that, it was a very lame state of affairs around here. That development was really a life saver.

Assuming you know where Ontario Street is, I will take that as a jab. Assuming I'm correct, your statement begs the question of whether you score crack in that part of North Philadelphia. Sorry to disappoint, but I don't come from the Badlands, although I know them well.

I don't really know where the place is.:) Never been to North Philly. Just wondered if you knew where it was. No crack for me. lol! You city boys are pretty tough skinned aren't cha?! ;)

That crack is really a problem. They have those sorts of problems in Coatesville too at the one end of town in particular. I was reading that they want to frisk people and some of the residents are opposed to it. First of all, I wouldn't want to live there, but some of those people are probably trapped there. Elderly people who can't get out of that part of town. Can't afford a new house or the rent is so cheap that's all they can do for themselves.

I'd be like - yeah yah - start frisking those dudes hanging around on the streets.

I enjoy going to the art museum in Philly and to Manayunk.

OK, first of all, I am assuming that anyone who has moved to Morgantown did so for the country atmosphere...isn't it beautiful! Look at all the open fields and scenery! Than what happens, you get here, then start to bitch about the smells of farmers everyday actions...having to drive 20 minutes to eat at a TGIF...quit yer complaining and move back to the city if that is what you want to make Morgantown into. I have lived here my entire life...I am not an inbred, I am a college graduate, High-tech RN and I hate the fact that houses are being built up so damn fast, farmers are getting pushed out...so much for the country fresh air....It is becoming to smell more and more like the slums of Philly. Go back to the cities you came from.

I have a better suggestion. Why don't you move further north or west? Some of us didn't come here for the country scenery. We're here for other reasons. Our space pod just landed in the middle of a field. It was a long trip from Philly. Don't you remember? You reported spotting strange lights in the sky and crop circles in the corn fields to the local sheriff. Did you here that? You better get the door. Ed McMahon is on your stoop with a check for a million dollars.

Why should we move? We're not the ones complaining about where we live. Why don't YOU move North and then you can complain about how many TREES there are in the forest?! Or move out west and complain about the mountains or wheatfields. Maybe they'll blow them up or churn them over and build the best restaurants, grocery stores, and whatever else YOU want out of life.

We get it - your other reasons are most likely - you have a very high paying job and they forced you to move here and you hate everything about this area - the people, the location, the local government. Man, I am soooooo glad that I don't work for YOU! You must be one nasty person to work with or for with your attitude! Can't begin to imagine what life is like for YOUR employees! Especially if they're FROM this area. lol! And before you go off on some hateful tirade, I work for a company with the executive offices located in the UK. I know all about the corporate world.

Well you did have a choice there buddy. You could have gotten a DIFFERENT job and stayed where you were living. But it's all about the money isn't it? Everybody has choices. So stop taking it out on the rest of us and treating us like "we're" the morons because we LIKE it here.

Do you hate kittens and puppies too? How about little children? Do you grind up their bones and eat them for breakfast? lol! rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

OOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGG GGGGGG - you have to drive 20 mins. to eat a good meal or go shopping?!!! WTF is this world coming too?! It's better than driving 1 1/2 hrs. to work and driving another 1 1/2 hrs. back home again though isn't it?! Oh, I forgot, you have an expensive vehicle so you are probably one of those maniac road rage drivers who would rather mow a person down than hit the brake pedal. Probably only takes YOU 1/2 hr. to get to the city. lol! How many animals have you taken out since you moved here? lol!

Don't complain about the farmers with your mouth full.......

Actually, we drive right up to Shady Maple. The best time to get there is either really early - just when they open at 8:00 - or go on a week night. The produce there is terrific. Yoders in New Holland - they've expanded and we're expected to pay for that expansion with higher prices. What a drag!

I guess it doesn't bother me because we've always driven 20-30 mins. to get groceries. My whole life. Well most of it anyway. I can't stand Martins either. If they would put some EFFORT into their place, they could be so much better. I love going to places like Genardis or the one down in Downingtown by BJ's. I can't remember the name at the moment! lol! There's a Giant in Thorndale too. Don't really know where the stores are in the Reading area.

Wow get a clue, the town is a dump along main st. Nothing but broken down old stores, and no good supermarket. Not asking for much, just don't feel like driving 20 mins all the time. This town could make a ton of money as the gateway to Lancaster county, but instead all you have is broken stores and flea markets. Like it or not, we are moving in and their are a glut of brandnew construction. So I can see how you would be bitter about the price of your bungalow dropping!

Sorry I have a social life and don't feel like getting up at 8am, even my 2 yr old doesn't get up that early. You must be on old folks time.

It would be perfect is Giant took over Martins. Maybe we should solicit the company to look into that. That would be cool.
