Most restaurants were pleased to welcome back indoor dining at 75% capacity recently. West Reading is proud to be 100% open for business and 100% committed to serving our community.

Our merchants are following guidelines in line with advice from the CDC, State and Local officials. Our small business owners value your understanding in limiting in store visits and requiring masks to protect their personal safety as well as their family. Please call ahead to make appointments for our retail shops whenever possible, especially during Holiday weekends.

We invite the public to share their 2nd Friday adventures on our social media.
