Priority Delco Thrive (PDT) is an initiative of Transition Town Media and the Chester Housing Authority with the goal of prioritizing the well-being of our Delaware County, PA, businesses that have been struggling under the pandemic restrictions. To focus attention on these businesses, each month we select one business in a different Delco town for a “shopping blitz”, inviting hundreds of people to come and spend $20 or more in that business on a specific day and time frame. Not only does this bring a cash infusion to the business, it also promotes that business to many people, across the county, who may never have heard of it and who will hopefully stop in again.
An equally important goal of PDT is to raise people’s awareness of all the great towns in Delaware County and to bring them together to get to know one another and to enjoy what each town has to offer. It’s a celebration of our richness and diversity and a chance to build important new relationships with folks across the county. When we come together and support our friends and neighbors, Delco Thrives. We all thrive.
This month, we’ll be in Swarthmore, sampling delicious selections from the Village Vine’s menu, 6 Park Ave. Swarthmore’s really gotten the Delco Thrive bug! They’re putting on quite a festival of fun activities – music, dance, and much more. So, order a meal or several from Village Vine but plan to stick around and enjoy the festivities! Once you sign up, we’ll be sending you updates on what is happening when so you won’t miss a thing.
