New Retail Coming to Oaks

Reader Victor did some detective work regarding the future plans for the Marketplace at Oaks and was able to uncover the following.

---
BJ's Wholesale Club will be built directly behind Lowe's and Pizzeria Uno will be built on the other side of Egypt close to 422, with 8 to 10 more restaurant pads and 10 retail pads in the plans.

Note, this is not to be confused with the Providence Town Center which is in Collegeville.

I'd been thinking about joining BJ's for a while (regardless if the one in Oaks was opening or not). I called the UPT office last week to see if they knew when the one in Oaks was supposed to open and they told me it's supposed to open in October. The person I talked to said that's what the current plan was, but as with other stuff around here (the Town Center for instance) that they couldn't be sure if it would actually open in Oct. or not.

I will just be glad when that whole area back by the new expo is just finished & put together. All the construction vehicles & new windy roads that are often detoured, etc. drive me a bit nuts!

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 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 loca
