They may not be the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, but whenever the young members of Girl Scout Troop 21232 pay a visit to the retired residents of Moreland Towers in Hatboro, they get treated like rock stars. "We have to put a limit on how many can come during each event," said Dawn Gurt, one of the parent co-leaders for the Warminster-based troop. "Otherwise, they would all be here and swamp the girls."

Warminster’s loss is Hatboro’s gain as merchants flee the indoor retail village for their own stores.
They sell jewelry, vintage albums, collectibles and electronic cigarettes and offer communication and computer services. Their businesses, on the surface, appear varied and seem to have little in common. But, on closer review, seven Hatboro businesses have all shared the same roof. That is, all have gotten their starts, or spent time growing their ventures, at the 263 Marketplace in Warminster. Looking to expand, they separately, yet collectively, moved from the nearly 2-year-old weekend-only indoor shopping center to Hatboro’s downtown shopping district along York Road. In all, the influx of merchants trading booths for brick and mortar storefronts in the last year represents about 10 percent of the borough’s new businesses, according to…
