First sign appears in stores next to Acme

According to a banner that is currently hanging in front of one the now-empty stores that adjoins Acme, Phoenixville will have a new dry cleaners (contain your excitement please) starting September 1st. The sign indicates a Grand Opening sale of 30% off once they open their doors.

No official word yet on what else will be going in there although there is speculation that a pizza restaurant and a hair/nails parlor are planned.

There is a Walmart 15 minutes away. I would never want one in our little town. I am in favor of a Wawa and Trader Joesin P-ville.

I agree with the previous comment. In addition to a Wawa and Trader Joe's, I would also like to see an upscale Asian restaraunt such as Margaret Kuo's.

The Walmart in Jeffersonville is turning into a Walmart Supercenter and the old Home Depot in King of Prussia is going to become a Walmart.

That Wawa on 113 is not very convenient. I, personaly, rarely take that way, so it would be nice to have one closer to downtown P-ville.

I know they are popping up EVERYWHERE and can be a crazy sight, but they are just so convenient.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…
