This just in! The Philadelphia Inquirer has recently called West Chester “one of the world’s most perfect small towns.” Tucked into the homely brick-lined sidewalks of West Chester, PA, the borough in particular, provides us with over 70 unique shops showcasing one-of-a-kind items and collectible brands. With products ranging from vintage accessories to bicycles and artwork, you are bound to find everything you desire by bundling up your winter jacket and heading into the bustling area for some West Chester shopping.

Some of the notable shops that make up Chester county as a whole, (which may we add has been dubbed the 4th best county to live in America), includes BLINK, Chester County Running, Eclat Chocolate, FAIRMAN’S Skate Shop, Jane Chalfant, KALY, Kaplan’s Fine Jewelry, Malena’s Vintage Boutique, Moonflower, Taylor’s Music, The Painted Plate, Visual Expansion Gallery and much, much more. These towns have come a long way over the past few decades providing shoppers an array of options to meet their needs. But having a town with a multitude of shops is nothing without customers to visit them. With so many stores, it can be difficult for consumers to find what they are looking for, what deals are going on, or where they are located. Equally important, it can be difficult for business owners to reach those consumers and provide those answers.

The Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, in full service to the community of Chester county, helps local businesses and entrepreneurs build relationships, networks and promotion. Not only do they work to serve the borough of West Chester, but also the townships of East Bradford, Westtown, East Goshen, West Goshen, Thornbury and Birmingham. By helping these members attain new customers and address their most serious business challenges, GWCC’s goal is to make businesses an integral part of the thriving community.
