Shop Downtown This Saturday!

Not that you should need a reason to patronize shops in town, but, if you do, this Saturday is a great reason to. American Express has started something they call Small Business Saturday in an effort to promote the small businesses that make towns like ours so great. As an incentive to get out and shop, American Express card holders will receive a $25 statement credit when you spend $25 or more at a participating small businesses.

The Phoenixville Area Business Association is getting in on the act as well by providing free parking all day in ALL lots. Streets will still have the 2 hour limit enforced.

Is there anywhere we can get a list of the participating businesses for the $25 credit?

Kudos to Paba for the great Christmas flags on each street light pole

Sadly the BS parking tax likely chased off a lot of potential customers. I for one haven't step foot down there in months. Too many other options with FREE parking.

In the case of Small Business Saturday, "The Phoenixville Area Business Association is getting in on the act as well by providing free parking all day in ALL lots."

What effect metered parking has had on other shopping days is another issue.

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
