Furlow’s Food Market

Furlow’s Food Market was located at 3940 Penn Avenue (then 542 Penn Ave) in Sinking Spring. The market opened in 1951, and was owned by Rufus Furlow and Morton Heim. I could not find a hard date on when the market closed, though Morton’s obituary stated he worked there until he retired in 1975.

Today, the building still stands and serves as the Sinking Spring Public library in the front, and borough hall building in the rear.

  1. I don’t know exact dates, but I’m pretty sure in the late 70’s or early 80’s for a brief time this was Weaver’s market. Weaver’s then moved west on Penn Avenue to adjacent to Krick Lane and became the Shurfine grocery store where the Tractor Supply currently resides.
