Coming Soon to a Sidewalk Near You!

PDIDA wants these sidewalks teeming with tables and shoppers
on July 21
for the First Sidewalk Sale of 2012.
You might think it's a little early to announce a Sidewalk Sale on July 21.

But not if you're a craftsman (or woman), or part of a local business or organization.

That's because PDIDA, the Pottstown Downtown Improvement District Authority, is looking for people to populate their sidewalk sale.

So if you would like to set up a table on High Street for a day that will include music, children's activities, crafters, a window decorating competition, free raffle give aways every hour and great deals at downtown shops, you need to consider signing up.

You can do so by calling Shelia, Cindy or Joe at 610-323-5400.

Or, you can send an e-mail to

We're already signed up.

The inside-The-Mercury-scuttlebutt is that we hope to have our "grand opening" of our newly refurbished Community Media Lab that day.

Renovations have already begun in our Community Media Lab
As my boss, Editor Nancy March, blogged about on May 4, the reburbished room will have computers the public can use as well as make it a working reference room for community with microfilm of our archives. 

Currently, only place to research back issues on microfilm is at public library. 

Last month, our Community Media Lab was selected as one of 10 newspapers throughout Digital First Media to get funding for a community room project.
