Two Local Businesses Moving

About a week late with this one but figured it was worth mentioning. Two local businesses, Salon Fiber and Phoenix Karate, will have new locations in the next couple of months. Salon Fiber, currently located at 224 Bridge St., is moving to a "smaller, 'intimate' location at 245 Taylor Alley." It opens at its new location on Wednesday, March 5, with a grand opening celebration during First Friday festivities on April 4.

Moving into 224 Bridge St. will be Phoenix Karate. The move will allow Phoenix Karate to hold two classes simultaneously. There is talk of keeping their current location, at 243 Bridge St., open as well.

I hate that Salon Fiber is moving from Bridge. They had a hip storefront.

Do we really need two karate classes going on at the same time on bridge street?!?!

Seems like a huge waste of prime real estate!

I was never at Fiber, but the previous poster is right. It definitely had a hip, urban look to it - just what Bridge Street needed.

Mitty is now at AME in Wayne. Her former co-worker (and my stylist) "Coz" got her a job there.

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…

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'.

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:
