I’ve been waiting for this to happen… A business located outside of Philadelphia limits was recently caught adding the city’s controversial tax on sugary beverages to customers’ bills, multiple local outlets have reported.
Representatives from the Ridley Park Wendy’s say a software glitch caused cash registers to add the $0.45 surcharge meant for taxing beverages within Philadelphia to orders taken by the Delaware County franchise on Monday. The programming error lasted for several hours but has since been corrected. Read more »
Lot 3 Elton Farm Cir., Glen Mills, Pa. 19342 | TREND image via Keller Williams Realty
Glen Mills is one of the many suburban communities to surround Philadelphia. Located in Delaware County’s Concord Township, it sits about 17 miles west of the city. As far as the suburbs are concerned, Glen Mills is pretty much as typical as it gets. Regardless, it’s still a great place to settle down in.
So, just how expensive is it to call Glen Mills your home? With a median listing price of $509,000 and a median home value of $426,100, Glen Mills lines up nicely for any potential homeowner looking to spend somewhere around $500,000. The properties available are a good size too, all of which offer over 3,000 square feet of space. If you’re interested in seeing these places for yourself, read on.

We don’t normally use listings from the same town for consecutive weeks’ jawdroppers, but when it’s deserved, we are more than willing to make an exception – and this time around, Newtown Square deserves that exception.
This Delaware County manor home sits on a whopping 12.7 acres of land, which is simply incredible. Besides the six-car garage, the in-ground pool and hot tub combo, the spacious back patio, and multiple gardens, the lot is pretty much empty. We aren’t exactly sure what to make of all that extra space, but the options are clearly limitless for any ambitious homeowner. Read more »

If you’ve ever dreamed about living in a fixer-upper (without actually doing the fixer-up-ing), say hello to this single-family home in Drexel Hill. Thanks to a complete rehabilitation, this historic home built in 1923 appears to be anything but dated.
The entire main level features beautiful hardwood floors and neutral walls. The kitchen showcases white cabinetry, granite countertops, ceramic subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. Next to the kitchen is a large dining room, followed by an open living room. Read more »
Last Friday began as any other Friday for Delaware County resident Jonathan Larsen — that is until he walked out in front of his house and found a piece of paper on his windshield.
“I picked it up thinking it was trash,” Larsen tells us. “But then I opened it up.” Read more »

A voice boomed as if from the heavens. “Please welcome, legendary coach Bobby Knight!”
Even though it was sweltering outside, the former Indiana University basketball coach walked on stage in his trademark red sweater. “When I was coaching, I don’t think we ever lost a game in Pennsylvania,” Knight said. “It’s just a possibility that may not be true, too. I’ve always been a big fan of the state of Pennsylvania. One of the people that I admired most in college athletics was Joe Paterno.” The crowd cheered.
Donald Trump, Knight and a few thousand supporters gathered in Studio 2 at Sun Center Studios in Chester Township last night to rally in support of Trump’s bid for the presidency. The final fight in Creed was filmed on the same stage, and so there was a Rocky statue wearing a Trump shirt in the room. Trump came on stage to “Gonna Fly Now” when Knight introduced him. “He won 900 games!” Trump said as Knight walked off the stage. “That’s a winner. We like winners.”
Donald Trump came to Delco last night, and it was weird. Read more »

Great news. 2SP Brewing Company is finally throwing their Delco Lager in a can.
Legend says that as 2SP was deciding what beers they would make, head brewer, Bob Barrar said the only beer he wanted to brew was Delco Lager. Now exactly one year out, the “All-Weather” beer is getting canned.
The lager taste is described as subtlety sweet and drinkable and is said to pair well with hoagies, tailgates, and Delco’s own Tina Fey.
2SP has only been open since last winter, but they have created a number of inventive brews and stock tweaked versions of Barrar’s award-winning concoctions from his time with Iron Hill Brewing.
Get your hands on a case or six-pack of Delco this weekend at the brewery on Saturday, June 11th or wait until you stumble upon some in the wild in the coming weeks.
