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: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
