The line stretched out the door for most of the lunch hour.

Store opened in June in Fox Ridge Shopping Center
Readers might remember VC Dollar from our "What Do You Want To See Go Here?" series. Located in the former location of Time 2 Party, the store opened on June 19. Owners Victor and Carmen Alicea, who live in the Blue Bell/Ambler area, chose the Limerick store because they liked the area and the community. Victor Alicea spent 14 years working for a health-care communications company; his wife worked for Travelers' Aid in Philadelphia for 20 years. Like many people over the last few years, Victor's job was eliminated, and he and his wife decided to start their own business.

The locally-owned sporting goods company has been in the area for 40 years
Schuylkill Valley Sports, locally owned and operated in the Greater Philadelphia area for the past 40 years, recently opened its newest location in Limerick at the Court at Upper Providence, located on Ridge Pike.
