We Said It Would Get Ugly

The battle between the Reading Terminal and Rick Oliveri’s Rick’s Steaks looks like it is really heating up.

The Reading Terminal Market Merchants Association has designated Saturday as “Save Rick’s, Save The Market Day” in support of steak sandwich vendor Rick Olivieri, whose lease was not renewed.

There will be a news conference at 10 a.m. at Rick’s Steaks. Speakers will include past and present merchants and members of FORM (Friends of Rick’s and the Market), Olivieri said.
