MEDIA IN TWO MINUTES!
Media Retail Takes Another Hit
It wasn't on the scene that long, but another retail store on State Street will be closing at the end of August. This store is located on the Western side of town.
Media's Last Used Car Dealership Disappears!
I never saw a salesman out front, nor did I see any activity inside, but it looks like Media's last used car dealership located on the westside of Baltimore Avenue has called it quits. I don't know if they left in the middle of the night, but they sure left in a hurry. Especially with all the car inventory, boats and other vehicles they had to remove from the location.
Fellini's Restaurant Expands
If you like Fellini's restaurant, get ready to like more of it. This business is making plans to expand into the adjacent building being vacated by the Salad Stop. The added room will be a welcomed addition to an already popular and often crowded eatery.
Another Brewpub in Media?
Iron Hill Restaurant has dominated the Brewpub concept here in Media for years, though that may be changing. It's been known to some for awhile now that the owner of Diego's, Picasso's and Le Bella Epoque, Loic Barnieu has been interested in bringing a brewpub to Media. In fact, there have been negotiations going on to do just that over the former Van Wyk Oldsmobile property.
I have to say, it's a neat location with plenty of parking and a unique store front. Having been vacant for years, it may make for a nice addition to the town. As for the what the restaurant will entail, think of a format similar to Victory Brewpub out in Downingtown, PA.
Media Patch.com is typically reporting news, but this week their parent company AOL was the news. Looks like the hyperlocal concept has fallen on some tough times. I like Media Patch and hope the stick around.
Robertson's Barber Shop
I always try to share feedback I get when I hear it on State Street. What I'm hearing lately is that people really like the haircut they get from Robertson's Barber Shop. When someone takes the time to tell you something like that, you know they hold the service in high regard.
Also, here's a cool clock that they put out front on N. Olive Street.
