2nd Fridays on Penn are typically a night where West Reading Merchants stay open late, offer specials and feature music by local acts. Since COVID-19 is mandating that we respect social distancing practices, the crew at West Reading Community Revitalization Foundation found this to be an innovative way to support our merchants.

Upcoming 2nd Friday featured acts include:
May 8 – Creatures of Content
June 12 – Mo7s
July 10 – BE
August 14 – Drew & The Blue
September 11 – Plan B
October 9 – Tequila Mockingbird

Our website, is also a portal for information about West Reading business operation during this crisis. Our COVID-19 Business Guide features restaurants and retailers currently offering services, including takeout, delivery and online shopping.

We have also started a bog to feature individual businesses with lots of inspiration from merchants in these tough times. The blog is titled West Reading “Gets Creative” and can be accessed online

To date the blog has featured:

  • Every Body Pilates, West Reading
  • The Barley Mow Craft Beer House
  • Muddy Creek Soap Company
  • Sweet Ride Ice Cream, LLC
  • Be Mine Boutiquee
  • Zipf’s Candies by Sweet Surprises
