Well, you have the ACMEs at 5th and Spruce and 2nd and Girard. Not sure if you need another large format grocery store in between the two.

I'm south of Rittenhouse Square and we don't have a full service grocery store near me but that doesn't impact my livability. We have smaller format grocery stores within a short walk and if I need to do "big shopping", I can easily get there by a longer walk, transit, Uber, or car.
