What Should Replace Antiques @ 236?

The Narberth store has announced it is closing at the end of January.

Patch wants to hear from residents of Narberth, Bala Cynwyd and beyond: What should fill the retail vacancies of your neighborhood streets?

Today, we're spotlighting 236 Haverford Ave. in Narberth, where a sign on the door of Antiques @ 236 announces the store will close when the lease expires Jan. 31.

The business will remain open online and will be present at antique shows, according to the announcement.

So tell us in the comments section below: What kind of business would you be most likely to frequent if it moved in? And what other vacancies in town do you have ideas about filling?

Cassandra, what do you mean Non-Compete? Do the three bars operate as a cartel w/ support of the council or something?

Absolutely not. Zoning code prevents new restaurants from opening by way of off-street parking standards. Existing restaurants are grandfathered in. By the way, we're working on a new zoning code which will hopefully change this.

I used that term too loosely. Sorry! But Michael Alexander's comment explains the concept, I think, far better than I did.

Hi, Allie! Maido is leaving in May, I think (according to a newly released Patch News item), so how 'bout you move your lovely Nannygoat (I miss it!) in there and create a space for books that feels like a bookstore in the corner (not a bad name for it either) that can have the charm of a used (with some new) bookstore, with some old seats and some tea/scones?

Hi Cassandra! We would love to have Nannygoat Antiques back in Narberth, so are continuing to explore every option. We welcome any tips for spaces that could work for us, including pop-up options: info@nannygoatalley.com. I am hopeful that Maido! and the building's owner can find a mutually agreeable solution to prevent Pat from leaving. It's not over 'til it's over, as they say!
