Chestnut Avenue Road from Centre Street to the will be closed from June 22, 2020 through November 30, 2020 to support outside dining at The Blue Monkey during restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. New Jersey permitted shuttered bars and restaurants to offer outdoor dining on June 15, requiring establishments to place tables six feet apart, limit eight customers to a table, require employees to wear face coverings and gloves and post signs prohibiting customers with a fever or symptoms of the coronavirus from entering. On Wednesday, Gov. Murphy signed an order permitting establishments that can open up two (2) walls - allows for ample air flow - to reopen for indoor dining.
On Monday the Merchant House family shared a very sad announcement. "Today was supposed to be a fantastic day of celebration! Today was to be the official opening day for The Merchant House, operated by our beloved mom, Patti Sharp, who after over 20 years of successfully owning The Station House in Haddon Heights, was so eager to take on this new and exciting dream. Tragically, our mom passed away suddenly from an undetected cancer a few days ago. The timing of her passing, just days before the grand opening, is truly the saddest part of this - as she was never able to realize this new dream. Our mom was loved by so many family and friends, old and new, and was thrilled to be part of the fabric of Merchantville, where she both lived and worked, even if for a short while. Thank you so much for all the immense support for this endeavor over the last many months of construction and then quarantine. Please stay tuned for any future updates."
The Merchant House was excited to announce that they are making progress with opening and sincerely appreciate everyone's patience caused by Covid-19 delays. Owner, Patti and her crew are working hard to make sure all needs are met and they can safely open. She looks forward to serving food in a warm, family atmosphere and building relationships in our quaint borough.The Merchant House is now on Instagram @themerchanthousenj and have posted updated photos of the interior they're excited for you to see. Please follow them on Facebook and other social media as they ready to open their doors to our community!
