Local Business Spotlight: All Things Primitive

Opening next Friday, April 3rd, All Things Primitive is Around Phoenixville's most recent Local Business Spotlight. Owner Barbara Jarrett writes the following:

My little shop is called All Things Primitive. The Grand Opening is slated for April 3rd, on First Friday. We will have drawings for items from the store all weekend. We will feature Country/Primitive home decor items. I am going to be located at 26 Gay Street. My hours will be Fridays, 5-9; Saturdays, 9-5; Sundays 12-5. Some of the items we will be carrying will be Candles, Pottery, Samplers, Table Runners, Wreaths, Baskets. Generally anything that you see in the big country/primitive stores, you will see here. We will have Fall open houses and Christmas open houses. I have been dealing in primitive craft items at craft shows for the last 2 years. My entry into this business was because people were always asking if I had a website or store. My prices were always a big hit with people! If anyone in the Phoenixville area traveled to the Country Gatherings store on Route 23 and were disappointed when the owner retired, stop in to see us!

When I started looking for a place to rent, I really didn't have a location in mind, however, when I found this storefront, everyone started telling me that Phoenixville was the "happening place."


Best of luck to Barbara!

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.

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!

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…
