A business in Pennsylvania managed to keep its doors open thanks to people in the area.
The people of Ardmore got behind the business as it – so to speak – had all the “nuts” on it.

CBS Local Philadelphia reports how The Head Nut – located in Ardmore – made its debut as Temp Tee Nuts in 1945. It has been the Molineux family’s main line of business ever since.
“Over the years, the family-owned business has reinvented itself with the changing times,” The Head Nut’s website explains. “Today we sell not only nuts, but our own brand of coffee roasted by Main-Line Coffee Roasters, teas from around the world, more delicious candies than you can imagine, many spices and everything in 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 thanks to Haverford Township’s plans to rezone the area.
“This is the wrong end to a working life,” Lee Molineux Sr. tells the publication.
Fortunately, this wrongful conclusion would not be The Head Nut’s fate – some 13,000 people signed a petition to end the rezoning plan. The city agreed and The Head Nut remains in business.
Adds Molineux Sr.: “I hope the place will remain after I’m gone.”
