Feedback on 'The Area'

Ok, time for some user participation. The restaurant list for The Phoenixville Area Guide seems to be pretty complete although I still need to add phone numbers and websites as applicable. Want to start working on some other business types now and would like your feedback on the order I should approach them in. Keep in mind, this is a resource not only for the people who live here, but also people who are considering moving here as well as visitors. Here are the sections I am planning to add over time, let me know your thoughts on what order I should do them in and, if there is something else you'd like to see, let me know!

Categories (alpha order):
Art Galleries; Antiques; Auto Repair/Service; Banks; Book Stores; Churches; Clothing; Coffee Shops; Convenience Stores; Florists; Gift Shops; Home Improvement/Housewares; Jewelry; Organizations; Pet Services; Pharmacies; Schools; Sports and Recreation; Supermarkets

Thanks!

Have you seen these flyers around town? Looks like someone may have too much time on their hands.

Phoenixville has pharmacies??!! Just kidding.

I like the idea of churches and auto repairs. They don't really go hand in hand, but they're important to me personally. Just my two cents.

I certainly like the idea of The Area but think to provide value beyond what you can get from tools like Google maps, we should get community feedback, ratings, that kind of thing in addition to the basic listings.

Must be some social media tools that you can work in.

Marianne,

This is high on my list of enhancements for The Area. Just need to find the time! Stay tuned though as I hope to have something along the lines of what you have suggested in the very near future.

Local Business Spotlight: Manor of Hope

Manor of Hope is a long term residential addiction rehab support program for young men. Located in a beautifully renovated farmhouse on Egypt Road in Phoenixville, Manor of Hope is a state of the art drug and alcohol recovery community that offers long term treatment and continuing care for young men with substance abuse issues.

The owner/mastermind of the Manor of Hope, Steve Killelea, dealt with his own son's addiction problem for over 10 years. Steve tried to help his son and sent him to many places, only to have him relapse - until he decided to look outside the US and in Canada found a "therapeutic community" where his son John found sobriety. Their program model inspired both Steve and John to create their own version right here in Phoenixville.

They also have created the "Building Futures" program which partners with small local businesses to help mentor and teach the young men vocational skills. One of the current residents named Steve has been working …
