new commercial concept

For a number of years, Jack's Camera held down the northeast corner of 22nd and Walnut Sts., with Millenium Cleaners taking over the space in the last couple of years.

Former Jack's

In August, an ominous sign went up in the window, indicating the end of the road for Millennium.

1401-03 E Moyamensing Ave. was most recently the address of The Witch, an American bistro, which lasted for a couple of years before closing a few months ago. The 1800 sqft. property has been on the market for about five months and is currently listed for $399K.

Redone in '07

From what we can tell, the place is ready to go for a new bar or restaurant, with tables, chairs, a bar, refrigerators, bathrooms, and storage still intact from The Witch. The liquor license is not included in the price, but can be purchased separately. While the restaurant is prominently located on the corner, neither The Witch or its predecessor, Peppercorns, had much success. The neighborhood is definitely capable of supporting these sorts of establishments, as Ugly American and Valentino can attest. We're not sure why the previous businesses have not been able to make a go of it at this address, but we're optimistic for the future.
