New Social Security Offices Due in Pottstown

SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICES RETURNING – The federal Social Security Administration, which once operated from offices at the heart of Pottstown on East High Street, several years ago moved into quarters at the Limerick Shopping Center on West Ridge Pike in Royersford. Now the agency is headed back to Pottstown, and soon will open customer service windows in the TriCounty Business Campus at 80 Robinson St. (at top), sharing an expansive parking lot with auto parts retailer Turn 5. Work to expand the fire emergency sprinkler system there, a project valued at more than $22,000, got under way with a borough permit issued Jan. 14. New signs adorn the exterior and its front door, and the office could open within weeks.
