Save The Vale Rio Diner! sign now

The borough of Phoenixville, PA is considering a proposal to replace the landmark Vale Rio Diner and historic Fountain Inn in the heart of the borough, with a Walgreens and Starbucks.

The town has absolutely no need for yet another drug store, when two chain stores are already mere minutes away and the locally-owned Gateway Pharmacy is also right up the road.

Suburban sprawl has become a major issue in this country over the past decade. There are people and organizations dedicating to fighting against it and helping to keep our towns from becoming interchangeable strip malls.

Please sign this petition, show your support of the Vale Rio and vow to boycott the Walgreens if it is actually built.

    Hold a town meeting. See what the elderly who are most effected by drugstores, the young and middle-aged adults who know where the town has been and are guiding its direction, and the youth who will live with the results of our actions have to say. Let

    I grew up in Phoenixville and have been around to see it come into its own as a town. There are currently at least 4 coffee shops on Bridge Street alone, and a Starbucks is unnecessary.

    That's ridiculous. But it could be worse; they could put a walmart in.

    I heard from a Vale waitress that the deal is off. The new Ice cream parlor was supposed to be the Walgreens.

    The historic landmarks such as the Val Rio, the Fountain Inn, and the Colonial Theatre are probably the main reason Phoenixville was the only place I ever wanted to call my home. That along with the local buisnesses and the general sense of communtiy. P

    Both are historic sites that shouldn't be removed.
