Penn-Mar Human Services buys former Shenk & Tittle space near I-83
Penn-Mar Human Services is the new owner of a 35,000-square-foot warehouse off I-83 in southern York County.
The York County-based nonprofit recently bought the space for $2,989,000 from Harlowe Prindle, who headed the Shenk & Tittle sporting goods chain until it closed its stores in early 2015.
Shenk & Tittle was the last tenant of the space, which sits near Home Depot in the Stonebridge Business Park in Hopewell Township, said Kevin Hodge of ROCK Commercial Real Estate, which worked with both the buyer and the seller in the sale.
Hodge, who assisted Penn-Mar with the purchase, was not sure how long the space had been vacant.
Penn-Mar is a nonprofit serving adults with intellectual disabilities in southern York County and parts of Maryland. It had about 500 employees as of early 2017 and headquarters in Maryland and Springfield Township, York County.
"This move allows us to not only meet our current needs, but our future needs as well," Penn-Mar president and CEO Gregory Miller said in a ROCK news release. "As we move towards our goal of full inclusion, our new facility will allow us to better assist each person we support to increase their level of participation in our community."
A representative from Penn-Mar was not immediately available for further comment Monday morning.
