Several businesses and one (and a half) schools closed their doors in 2012, bringing changes to the Media Patch area.
Below are some of the businesses in Media Patch that closed last year.
In late November, Zac's Hamburgers in Media closed with owners saying they could not come to a new lease agreement with the building's owners.
Edgmont's Sang Kee opened in the summer of 2011, then closed in the summer of 2012, only to quickly reopen as Azie Southeast by the same owners. But only months later, Azie Southeast also closed.
Next to Azie Southeast, was Winner's Circle Sports Bar, which closed in the fall and reopened as Double Edge Sports Grille.
Four Paws, after relocating to Jackson Street in Media, closed in 2012. Months later, Viso's Bakery opened its second location of specialty desserts.
Dino Don's Dinosaurium recently went extinct at Granite Run Mall, although the Dinosaurium never had plans to be a permanent fixture at the mall.
Media Citibank announced layoffs and branch closures in December.
After 100 years of Catholic education, Nativity BVM Catholic School closed its doors in June.
And luckily just a temporary closure, structural issues at Media Elementary closed the building this school year and students and staff transitioned to a temporary location at the former Nativity BVM School while repairs are made.
