Limerick "lovin' it" soon

The signs are going up at a new, 24-hour McDonald's location on West Ridge Pike.

For a few weeks, in Royersford has displayed "help wanted" signs for a new, 24-hour McDonald's location in Limerick.

The new McDonald's, on West Ridge Pike next to Walgreen's (and across the street from rival Sonic), is not open yet, but from the look of things, the deep fat fryer will be fired up pretty soon. Most of the signs are up, and the drive thru menu boards are ready to be festooned with images of Big Macs and Sausage McGriddles.

Reached by telephone Friday morning, a spokesperson for McDonald's said that the new store is scheduled to open on Tuesday, May 31.

What say you, Spring-Ford?  Are you happy to have another source of Happy Meals?  Will the lure of late night McNuggets bring you to the drive-thru in the wee hours of the morning?  Tell us in the comments.

I'd rather have a Saladworks, or even a good New York Style Deli

As a Mom of 3 children - I will most likely go there A LOT if they have Wifi AND an indoor playground :) If they will not have the indoor playground. . . I don't see much appeal. Just sayin'

50% of a McDonald's "chicken" McNugget is NOT chicken. We need to eat locally-grown organic produce, grass-fed beef, pastured chicken. Watch Super Size Me and Food, Inc and you'll never eat at McDonald's again.

Oh, and try the Phoenixville, Collegeville, or Skippack Farmers' Markets. Or join a CSA and help grow your own food!

I think Mickie D's will be a welcome addition to Limerick. It will provide our pampered teenagers from our affluent neighborhoods a nice family place in which to congregate after dark...and create jobs for the not-so-affluent.

we absolutely do not need another fast food joint where all the soccer moms can take the kids for some grease laden artificial food and where the locals won't work but anyone who can ride the septa line will find their way to.

RoFo native... you have no idea how close we are to that...it is scary!...

I hope "how close we are to that" is not a veiled reference to the great borough of Spring City!

I dunno?! We turned the corner one armed robbery arrest! 2 suspects... may be a new record!
