The owner addresses the rumors that are swirling about the 6.5 acre property.
Waterloo Gardens owner Bobby LeBoutillier says the three biggest rumors circulating about who is buying the now-closed Waterloo Gardens site in Devon are: Terrain, A Ford dealership, or a nursing home.

It's a birthday day the owner didn't want to see happen and an even tougher one for workers and customers.
Bobby LeBoutillier is marking his birthday in a way no one would ever choose. The CEO of Waterloo Gadens is closing the store his grandparents opened 70 years ago in Devon. "We're very sorry we're not going to be there (any longer)," LeBoutillier told TE Patch during a phone interview late Friday. "The community supported us a long, long time." In the end, he explains the economic downturn, which he says started in 2008 for the economy and especially the home building industry, simply caught up with Waterloo Gardens. The result is Waterloo is consolidating its operations to one much larger store in Exton, twelve miles West of the Devon Store. The decision to close the landmark Devon store on Lancaster Avenue was a difficult and personal …
