Anyone hear anything about an LA fitness going in there? I thought i remember hearing something about that and then they backed out....not sure though.

It would be great to get a large REAL gym in the area. All we have is the YMCA and the small, overcrowded, overpriced WorkOut+ which sucks

Richland Marketplace already has an anchor store in Target, so Costco will not be coming in.

Isn't this a Richland Township project going in on O's watch?
More big box retail coming in. I was looking forward to a Costco because I stopped shopping these types of cost-saving stores awhile ago when it was no longer on my commute to work and my schedule did not allow for a convenient 30-45 minute drive to get to one. I feel a little jipped if it is true that all we are going to get more moderately priced big box.

The Target competes with the Kohl's that went in to compete with the Wal Mart that went in to compete with the K Mart- on O's watch- I don't see much of a difference in the merchandise and I shop at the Goodwill and Salvation Army that has always been here to get mall and other high end clothes at a fraction of what other people pay for them while I am benefitting a good cause.

Lane Bryant will compete with Fashion Bug, the other big boxes referenced above and the Bon Ton (which used to be Hess's) and all which went in on O's watch. There may be other chain clothing stores in Richland Township, I don't pay attention. If I need something nice, I shop Tana Kaya in Quakertown Borough.

As for Sneakerking and Payless, they already went in on O's watch and are just hopping around from strip mall to strip mall. I am not sure why. I heard there is a pet store going in to compete with the Pet Value and the other pet store on 309, which came in on O's watch.

I'm sure others are thrilled with all the options and different places that you can buy cars that went in on O's watch in Richland Township. I just sit in the traffic to get to Goodwill, Salvation Army, Swann's Pantry or the discount bakery on 309. If I need something last minute, I run into Boyer's in town as opposed to fighting the traffic to get to Redner's, one of the two Giants or the now empty Acme location, that came and went on O's watch. When I need office supplies, I support Sine's. If I need music supplies, I go to DeVoe's in Quakertown Borough- I've heard that Guitar Villa on 309 is overpriced and I have not tried the new music place where the Goodwill used to be. I miss the discount movie theater, though the shopping center was a mess around there when it existed and I refuse to pay the Regal cinema prices. We'll get a book from the library or wait for the movie to come out on dvd or tv. If I want to eat out- I support a new independently owned restaurant in Quakertown Borough instead of the TGIF, Applebees, Red Robin, McDonalds, Burger King, Arbys and a plethera of other 309 eating places that went in on O's watch. Is it true that we earned the distinction of having more fast food places in one square mile than anywhere else in the country or was it just short of the Philadelphia area where O grew up. He is doing a fine job of getting this area to look like his hometown, I mean the city where he grew up.

Thank you for explaining this to me. If what you say is true I must thank Ofloff for makeing this place into something and someplace convenient to live.
It is great that you are able to be happy with what you get at the places you shop. I and many others I know would be miserable if those places were our only options. I do not have time to drive 5 places in one day. One stop local shopping is what works for me. With the price of gas who wants to drive to Montgomeryville or Allentown?

Last Saturday, I had to drive through Qtown on 309 around 1pm. It took me 20 minutes to get from the new light at Target to the light at Tollgate Rd.

When the hell are these two munipalities going to synchronize the traffic lights! They keep adding lights and traffic tie-ups get progressively worse! I thought Richland had money from the state or county to have this done? What the hell are they doing with that money...waiting for a purple traffic light or something? If I didn't know better, I'd think I'm driving through Montgomeryville when I go through quakertown anymore.

From what I understand everything is ready to go but they are all waiting for PennDot to finally decide it's worthy of their time to install the system. PennDot tends to move at their own pace.
Poor Planning

Has anyone else noticed how difficult it will be to stop at the new WAWA?

What's with the Township Engineers when it comes to traffic planning. They never allow enough access points or sufficently sized access points. Look athte WAWA at Tollgate. Or how about the alignment of the Qmart entrance and Beaver Run? Two cars cannot make a left at the same time thereby backing up traffic until the stalemate is over. I could go on but I type slowly and this could take a while.

PS. The round-about is a success. Unfortunatly its the only success I've seen in traffic planning around here.

How about driving into Giant/Lowes from the Station Rd Extension. What brainiac thought up the idea to put the main drive right in front of the building. How many times do you try to turn in there and it's gridlock, waiting for slowpokes to walk across the 'PED XING'!

Just more of the same BRILLIANT planning for the township engineering firms!!!

Please, please. please do not turn this legitimate question into an 'Orloff and crew' bashing. I am so tired of no longer being able use this forum to get/give information without it turning into a fiasco. Between the Orloff and crew slamming and HMWH (and the like), I am afraid to even look at this site. It was at one point interesting to see the questions/answers, but no longer. Now it is almost an embarrassment.
MY opinion

#21 Apr 21, 2008
I have to agree that the traffic planning is a mess. The traffic lights are horrible - just as you actually get a green light, the next light turns red! One of my pet peeves is the exit from the K-Mart end of Kohl's shopping center. Why didn't they make it so you could cross directly from the K-Mart end straight over into Wal-Mart or be able to pick up 309 north from that end? The light is already there; you can enter from 309 South but you can't exit. Instead every single car is directed through the exit at Burger King - what a mess!
Please Understand

A lot of responsible and reasonable people have been very offended by very active choices that Mr. Orloff makes in the way he conducts himself over and over and over. He is the one who absolutely unleased Pit Bull politics in this area.

If you have ever wondered how some stories end up in our local papers- Mr. Orloff and Mr. Stepanoff send highly critical and inflammatory letters to other leaders and copy all the local reporters.

There was less bashing of a councilman indicted for embezzlement than what Orloff and Woldow initiated against many leaders in this community for whom no criminal charges have ever been levied.

Bashing under the guise of opinion is what is credited with saving our local free paper and what many want out of this blog and that local paper. I expect it on a blog and am disappointed that it was allowed to exist so unbridled with so much mutilation of fact and law for so many years in the local paper.

Ignore it and pull the information from in between the frustrated opinions as people have had to do with The Free Press for several years now.

At least here, when it is mis-information, a critic is right there with a different point of view or link to accurate information and the reader gets to decide which side seems more reasonable and factual. For years Woldow controlled whose letters went into the Letters to the Editor and he had the upper hand by allowing only one letter every thirty days from members of the community.
