The residents of Springfield (Delco), Pa. understand that the FTC has ruled against the acquisition of Genuardi Newtown, Pa. By Ahold/Giant. The Genuardi Market, here in Springfield is less than one and a half miles from a Super Giant built less than two years ago on Sproul Road, which is about 75,000 square feet. The only other competitor in this community is Target, which has a limited selection of prepackaged meat and a small produce assortment. We ask the FTC to take another look at Springfield Genuardi, and the proximity to Springfield Giant. Giant is has recently started building another Super Giant in Havertown, a few miles East of Sproul Road Giant.
