Local Business Spotlight: RentNotBuy.com

Reader Leo wrote in today to tell me about a business he and a friend started in January. The company, RentNotBuy.com, provides a way for people to rent things they do not need to those who do. Says Leo:

---
"RentNotBuy.com provides a marketplace to allow users to rent things they own to each other. By renting things you own you can reduce consumption (and thus pressure on natural resources) and earn a bit of cash at the same time. By renting from others on RentNotBuy.com, rather than buying, you can save some money and reduce the amount of "rarely used" junk in your life.

RentNotBuy.com is free to use and always will be. It is a resource for the local community.

RentNotBuy.com was founded at the beginning of the year and is based in Phoenixville, PA.

RentNotBuy.com is already gaining some exposure. They were recently featured in Daily Candy Philadelphia and there are already over 100 items available to rent.

For more information, please visit the website at http://www.rentnotbuy.com.

Best of luck to Leo and co. with their new project!

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back , Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret. The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture: --- Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s. The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at
