A business in Pennsylvania managed to keep its doors open thanks to the people in the area.
Residents of Ardmore stuck behind the business as — as one may put it — there were all “nuts” over it.
CBS Local Philadelphia reports how The Head Nut — which is located in Ardmore — made its debut as Temp Tee Nuts back in 1945. It’s been the Molineux family’s main line of business ever since.
“Over the years, the family-owned business has reinvented itself with changing times,” explains The Head Nut’s website. “Today we sell not only nuts, but also our own brand of coffee roasted by Main-Line Coffee Roasters, teas from around the word, more gummy candies than imaginable, spices galore, and everything between.”
According to the same CBS Local Philadelphia article, The Head Nut was one of many other businesses along the main line that were at risk of closing down thanks to Haverford Township’s plans to rezone the area.
“That’s the wrong ending for a lifetime of work,” tells Lee Molineux Sr. to the publication.
Fortunately, that wrong ending was not to be The Head Nut’s fate — around 13,000 people signed a petition to put a stop to the rezoning plan. The township conceded, and The Head Nut remains in business.
Adds Molineux Sr.: “I’m hoping the place will remain after I’m gone.”
