Phoenixville Area Business Association Unveils DiscoverPhoenixville.com

The Phoenxville Area Business Association (PABA) recently unveiled a new website, DiscoverPhoenixville.com. The site, which was created by local marketing firm Virtual Farm Creative, Inc, highlights the many business in the Phoenixville area as well as provides additional information about the PABA and the town in general.

From the Virtual Farm press release:

“We were hired to make the PABA website a useful tool for the organization,” reflects Todd Palmer, creative director at Virtual Farm Creative, Inc. (VFC). The Phoenixville-based advertising agency was selected to rebuild PABA’s website as the association reorganized. “While developing the PABA site VFC identified the opportunity to create a resource for visitors to Phoenixville whether online or on Bridge Street.”

DISCOVERPHOENIXVILLE.COM profiles the categories of businesses that call Phoenixville home by showcasing different businesses with each visit. PABA members receive a full profile page with a link to their site in a compelling interface.

“We were determined to make DISCOVERPHOENIXVILLE.COM the definitive resource for all Phoenixville entities while supplying current event information and positive news about the organization and its member-businesses within a robust database,” adds Palmer. “The custom database and administrative interface behind DISCOVERPHOENIXVILLE.COM will allow it to naturally grow as the Borough evolves.”

Neat. But aren't there a lot of sites like that already that offer the same service with fewer bells, whistles, and expensive photography?

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'.

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!
