Two new stores open up on State Street in Media, PA

Two new stores open up on State Street

Two new stores have opened up on State Street right next one another.   The first is Unique Boutique which has a lot of seasonal and holiday decor and ideas.  The second is a home movies to dvd service which is the first of its kind for Media. Both look like they have or will open for business this week.

Best of luck to both businesses and welcome to Media, PA!

  1. Are the stores in Media within code to use neon LED signage in windows??? Is Media enforcing this code? And if not, why not? The signage dumbs the town down in a big way. Try and stay classy Media. The direction you are headed in with the new stores looks uninspiring.

    1. That's an incandescent question.

    2. The hideous OPEN signs in store front windows. Like we don't know they are open. It screams tacky. Screams, I don't want to go in there. Ever.

    1. A lease doesn't keep you in business

  6. Thank God- the home movie to DVD store we have been waiting on! Just what main street needs. Now if we could finally get another pedestrian restaurant to maintain our title of mediocrity. Love the town. Hate the status quo (and also all the rushed development). Except, you know, that world class hotel/dollar store/CVS addition.

    1. You can thank code enforcement, media borough council, and the retail shops landlord for the cheap signs and non fair trade CVS
      And boutique hotel

  7. Thanks for opening these stores, for a moment there, Media was starting to feel a little more upscale.

  8. Leave it to the commenters on this page to complain about everything. Media buys land to preserve open space and everyone complains. Media approves development of open land and everyone complains. A new restaurant opens, everyone complains its not a retail space. A new retail space opens, and everyone complains it doesn't fit their vision of the town. STFU all of you. Quit complaining behind your keyboards.

    Welcome to town for the new shops, I look forward to stopping in and checking out your businesses.

    1. It's simple if indeed they're rules regulating the type of signage stores can and can't have then someone's job is to make sure this complies with the rule.l that's the takeaway here. As far as business's opening that's great one has to have a high risk tolerance to open a shop in retail-good for these shops and the folks that opened them

    2. So....which brings up a good point @STFU...what exactly IS the vision of the town? BC it's not clear. There are a few simple fixes. A good start: Get the burnt out, old lighting OFF the buildings. Unsightly. Or at the very least, replace the bulbs!! Seems like there's a lot of wattage in Media....looks like a landing strip. Lights in the (finally grown) trees would be enough. Simple. Less is more! It's really not that hard. Take a page out of Phoenixville or West Chester's book. Follow it. I've been here for 20 years and have watched the growth, but it's still a strange little town mired in politics. Can't get out of its own way. If you build it with a clear vision in mind, they will come. Not sure a DVD store is the answer.

    3. Spot on. Tedman had the right tone in welcoming two new businesses to town and well-wishing their success. Thankfully the "everyone" you mention aren't anything resembling a viable voting block.

    4. So great two new businesses but the question remains are the signs within code . Certainly one would expect a new business not be exempt from following borough codes related to signage

    5. Hmm so lets see, Jons Grille has been in media, with Neon signage in the window for decades.
      As does the duplication / copy store across from Iron Hill
      As does Media Hair stop
      As does La Na
      As does Omalleys
      As does Deals card store
      As does Zen Nails
      As does buddys burgers

      Sounds like you've broken open a widespread conspiracy, or perhaps your just complaining about nothing.

    6. The experts hired by media borough themselves stated the Main Street needs to be improved in its experience to compeat with surrounding retail
      Venues. Having decent signs or storefronts would help the overall primp
      That Main Street media needs
