Phoenixville Kids’ Closet Hosting Grand Opening Celebration December 6th

"Children's clothing is billion-dollar business built on an expensive necessity---a necessity because children need clothing, and expensive because children grow quickly, often outgrowing their clothing at a rate that parents have a hard time keeping up with. " -eHow

Tracy Tackett, founder of Phoenixville Kids’ Closet, has a solution: Recycled Clothing. Children tend to grow faster than parents can fill their closets, which can be challenging for any family on a budget, especially families with multiple children of different ages, sizes and styles. Tackett’s new shop, Phoenixville Kids’ Closet, is a recycled children’s clothing store providing a one-stop-shop for parents looking for in-style, in-season recycled children’s clothing at a great price to maximize their budget.

"If parents are spending time running from one store to the next to find the best deals they aren’t making the most of their time and definitely not their budget,” Tackett explained. “By providing a Recycled Children’s clothing shop to the busy downtown Phoenixville area we’re allowing parents to park and be able to visit numerous shops within walking distance while finding in-style, in-season recycled children’s clothing for multiple ages all within a budget.”

Phoenixville Kids’ Closet will celebrate its’ Grand Opening on December 6, 2013 from 5:00pm-6:30pm. The first 100 visitors will receive coupons for a free slice of pizza from Xpress Pizza and a free craft at Design Grove just for stopping by! So take a break from cooking and stop by Church Street for Phoenixville Kids’ Closet’s Grand Opening celebration prior to the Phoenixville Christmas Parade, which starts at 7:00pm on Bridge Street.

Phoenixville Kids' Closet is located at 225 Church Street. For more information, give them a a call at 215-313-7934 or visit them online at phoenixvillekidscloset.com

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'.

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:
