Local Business Spotlight: Skylight Coworking

Skylight Coworking is a collaborative office environment offering low cost, shared desk and office space to members and drop ins. Rates start at just $25 for the occasional drop in coworker, with a mid-price point of $175 per month for part time members and $275 per month for full time members, and a premier price point of $325 per month for 24/7 key holders.

Skylight Coworking provides comfortable shared desk space, Wi-Fi Internet access, an open office environment, a semi-private conference room, kitchenette, rest room facilities, and above all else a friendly, collaborative, professional atmosphere amongst members. It is also available for events, jellies, and meet-ups.

The term “Coworking” was first coined in the United States 7 years ago and has become increasingly popular in both the U.S. and abroad. Coworking provides the opportunity for freelancers, virtual employees, small business owners, and other work-from-home types to build a collaborative community of professionals and a comfortable work space away from the traditional home office. Coworking attracts web developers, programmers, graphic designers, writers and editors, technology professionals, artists, Internet marketers, and other such creative professionals and freelancers who often find themselves in coffee shops or libraries in an effort to increase their productivity and stimulate social interaction.

Skylight Coworking chose Phoenixville as its headquarters location because of the bustling revitalization of the borough’s downtown district, as well as its proximity to Philadelphia and the Western Suburbs. Bridge Street and Main Street in Phoenixville are both lined with many new, up-and-coming businesses, including restaurants, shops, galleries, artist studios, cafes, pubs, and salons. The area will provide a cool and contemporary backdrop for professionals who choose to spend time working and interacting at Skylight Coworking.

Skylight Coworking opened at 214 Bridge Street in Phoenixville, PA with a soft launch on October 15 and is holding their Grand Opening Event on November 2.

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…
