April Business Digest


Neighborhood News and Notes

Happy Passover and Easter to all who are celebrating! This month we're excited to spotlight Stone's Beer & Beverage Market, a fixture on Fairmount Avenue making a temporary move, but continuing to serve the neighborhood. There's been press recognition for Thirsty Dice as well as Sabrina’s Café for being two of the best brunch spots in Philly, and a shout out for The Monkey & The Elephant recognizing their work helping young adults aging out of foster care.


We have a new team member working to support the neighborhood and lead the Greater Art Museum Business Alliance. Julia Marchetti started as Business Services Manager in late March. If you're leading a neighborhood business, or starting or growing a new venture, make sure to connect with Julia at jmarchetti@fairmountcdc.org!

What makes you stand out?

Since 1955, Stone's has been a keystone of the Fairmount corridor and has risen to be the premier beer distributor in Philadelphia, offering a wide variety of services, including delivery, wholesale, craft beer pre-orders, and the exclusive wholesale of Fairmount's own, Brewery Techne. We are technology driven, innovative, and community focused, collaborating and donating with other business in the neighborhood.


What current offerings would catch our eye?!

We recently launched pre-order programs for exclusive craft beers and kegs! We offer delivery throughout much of the city, as well as wholesale for restaurants, bars, and venues.


Why do you love working in the Art Museum District?!

We are proud to be rooted in our local community and are deeply invested in the economic growth and social vibrancy of the Francisville, Spring Garden, Fairmount, and North Broad/Poplar neighborhoods.


You have some exciting news to share. Tell us more!

We’re temporarily moving from 1701 Fairmount Avenue to the Poth Brewery at 3145 W. Jefferson Street in Brewerytown! Our location in Fairmount is being demolished and rebuilt as a new beer store with apartments above.


We’ll be returning to 1701 Fairmount Avenue by 2024, after our new building is built. Until then, we would love your support at our temporary location in Brewerytown, or simply order delivery through our website.

Help Expand Textile Recycling in Philadelphia

Do you donate or throw out used clothes? Does your business produce textile waste? Circular Philadelphia and All Together Now PA are working together to expand textile recycling options in Philadelphia, and gathering data on how much and what kind of textile waste businesses and residents produce and how they currently dispose of it. This data will be used to identify what textile recycling solutions are appropriate for Philadelphia. Please take the short survey and help increase recycling in the city.
