The shuttered Devon Theater was recently bought by an Ardmore firm for $487,000, which is considered a bargain because the interior is so modern. The company has no specific plans for the site. The building could be sold again.
The Mayfair Business Association will meet again on Thursday, April 10, at 10 a.m. at Beneficial Bank, 7262 Frankford Ave. ••
