Local Business Spotlight: Forever Changes

Forever Changes, a pop-up vinyl record store, recently opened inside Heart Stone Coffee in Franklin Commons. The store, owned by Shawn Cephas, is open every Saturday from 10am-2pm and features not only new and vintage vinyl records but also music inspired gifts and art made by locals, including Rich's Really Cool Notebooks, Livnsol by Brian Hearns, and Kate's Creations.

"Forever Changes is not just a place for the vinyl record fan, it's a place where our friends, family, and lovers can shop and support local merchants," he said. "It's more than records"

Cephas traces his love of music to the day he was born above a record store: King James Records, one of the first African-American owned record stores in Philadelphia.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
