The local group's weekly meetings serve both educational and business purposes.
Business owners know that referrals are often the bread and butter of building their business. Networking is a huge part of your reputation. At the same time, being able to refer people to other business owners you trust benefits both sides. That's what BNI, a local business networking group, does for its members. The Limerick II chapter of BNI meets on Wednesdays at The Loft at Limerick Golf Course for a buffet lunch and a 90-minute meeting. There is time to network with fellow business owners and a speaker who talks about a business-related subject. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. BNI meets weekly and only accepts one business owner in a category. According to BNI's website, Visitors are always welcome at meetings - the …

Local woman opens Loft Consignment in Spring City
The Limerick Post profiled shop owner Anita Marie Butz and her business, Loft Consignment, over the weekend. Butz, a St. Peter's Village resident, told the Limerick Post that she enjoys thirft shopping and wanted to open a shop of her own. Butz and her husband opened Loft Consignment in a more than 4,000-square-foot location at 3807 Schuylkill Road, Spring City, back in April. She sells gently used clothing, toys, furniture and other items. Because the shop is a consignment store, Butz keeps 40 to 60 percent of the selling price of the items she sells. Customers who bring items in for consignment don't pay a fee. Loft Consignment's hours are Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Fridays from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.; and Saturdays…

We are asking the community its opinion on empty stores. Here's your chance to express your views.
Formerly a Cumberland Farms, and also Country Farms, this location is located at a fairly busy "rush hour" intersection in the Limerick-Royersford area. The shop's physical location is on Main Street and N. Lewis Road. I can't say it's the prettiest of boarded-up stores, but how many of them are? We were hoping to get the public's opinion on it. What do you want to see here? Would another gas station-convenience store suffice? Or is it about time we put something worthwhile there? Leave your thoughts in the comments section and keep an eye out for more stories like this. We'll try to highlight an empty storefront every week.

The awards were flowing at the end of the month. We stopped in to Open Door to hand out our next award, which was voted on by YOU!
So, we've already awarded two crucial parts to our community: Our Students (the future) and our Voices (bloggers). But, no community can truly thrive without one key element. Did the title give it away? I figured. Yes, you were right if you said Local Businesses! Therefore, we took the pleasure in holding a vote for the Best Local Business in 2011 in the Limerick, Royersford and Spring City area. We had some amazing nominations, including a historic ice cream shop, a famous breakfast shop, a cozy little coffee hangout, a brand new farm and an antique store. The voting in this competition was the absolute tightest of all of the polls. And with 708 of the 1,411 votes cast, Open Door, located on Main Street in Royersford, won. "[We're] …
