According to a 1931 Reading Times article Woomert’s Store was located at Third Avenue and Sunset Road in West Reading and owned by a William H. Woomert. The building is still standing but has been renovated since the above image. From street view you can tell that some of the brickwork has been altered to cover up this large windowed opening, but sections match the 1948 image. Otherwise, no info is known about this small corner store except that it was frequented by students at West Reading High in the 1940s, who referred to it in their 1948 yearbook as “Woomert’s Confectionary“.
