Wolfgang Books Hosting Final Event This Saturday

Wolfgang Books, which is set to close its doors at the end of the month, is hosting one final event this Saturday when they present author John Reimringer as part of their Writers at Bridge and Main series.
Saturday, March 12th @ 3 pm
(Steel City Coffee House)

One of the legends of Wolfgang Books (and a true one at that) is that the business began with a single book. Rather than go out with a whimper, we'd like to go out with...one book.

So we're going to bring in John Reimringer, all the way from St. Paul, Minnesota for the last installment of the Writers at Bridge and Main Series at Steel City Coffee House. John is the author of the recently released Vestments, one of our 2010 books of the year. It is a powerful and compelling story, not to mention expertly written. One of the most striking aspects of the novel is that John writes so well about such a variety of experiences: the legacies of childhood, a pick-up basketball game, high school love and questions of faith, just to name a few.

Above all, Wolfgang Books always aimed to put the best work in your hands, and Vestments certainly is representative of that. We hope that you'll be able to make it to this last order of business and help us go out the same way we came in.

This event is free, open to the public and begins at 3 pm at Steel City Coffee House. Please arrive a little early to get a good seat and pick up a drink or snack to enjoy during the reading.

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…
