Any features you would like to see?

First, I'd like to thank everyone for visiting the site. Over the past couple of months, readership has really started to grow which makes writing the blog very satisfying. With summer over, things seem to have slowed down a bit which got me to thinking. Is there anything you can think of which would make the site even more useful? I am open to any and all suggestions. Not saying they will all be implemented, but I'd like to hear what you think. Send me an email at tips@bridgeandmain.com with any suggestions you may have. And thanks again for reading!

if we want a certain business to come to our area (for example, people seem to be really interested in having a Trader Joe's store here), can we then put in some efforts in making it come true? maybe we could write a letter to Trader Joe's and express our interest in having them open a store in Phoenixville?

never mind a Trader Joe's, what we really need is a good Vietnamese restaurant.

I would love a Trader Joe's in Phxville. Unfortunately there is one only about 5 miles away so I would be suprised if they would add another store so close.

I only recently discovered your blog, and I've gotta say you're doing a great job. It's nice to have an online source for what's happening around town. I can't think of any features worth adding right now. Just keep doing what you're doing.

(and a TJ's in town would be awesome!)

There's been some talk of Trader Joe's or Whole Foods looking up in Limerick/Royersford/Upper Providence for a store.

why would a Trader Joe's come to Phoenixville when they have one ten minutes away at the Gateway shopping center in Wayne?

Do you happen to know what is planned for the building across the street from McDonalds. I know a Wawa is supposed to go in sometime but not till next year. Any info?
Thanks

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…
