Jonathan Looper Antiques closed his doors on Main Street ....oh....probably 1 1/2 years ago already. Where do these nominations come from?

thanks for the head's up. I think they just have a huge directory of businesses, all of which are eligible for an award. Guess they don't keep it up to date. I am to blame as well as I basically just copied last year's blog post, checked that the links were still active, and posted it for this year. Its been removed and I have added Salon Fiber in its place. If anyone notices any others that have closed, or one's that need to be added, please post it here in the comments.

Thanks

You may want to add Artisans Gallery and Cafe to the contender list for Best Coffee Shop. They have been part of the downtown for--I think--2 years, right?
I don't think they have a website, but you don't need one to qualify for the Hot List.

I have no control over who is on Fox's nominee list. If/when they are added I'll be sure to link to them.

When you vote for a business, there is an option in each category to add a business, I believe. Also, I do think Artisan's has a website up and running now (no, I don't work there) but it is by far my favorite coffee shop. Best mood, best drinks, best staff.

If you do a search for Phoenixville on the Hot List's site, you will find *5* pages of local businesses that are up for votes. Good luck PHX businesses!

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:

---
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 the sty…
