Community Sports Shop, a fixture in town since 1959, provides competitively priced team uniforms, sports apparel, tee shirts and sports equipment to youth and adult athletic programs, schools and corporations and has been part of the Ladik family since 1981. The shop moved from 2 East Maple Avenue - after The Clip Joint fire in August 2013 - to their current location at 21 North Center Street. Although temporarily closed due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, they continue to show support for us on their storefront. Many of the Borough's other small businesses are still able to offer reduced services to residents of Merchantville and neighboring communities. Links to hours and available services in town.
During these times of uncertainty we, at Volunteers of America Delaware Valley, see glimmers of hope in the most unexpected places. This week, one of our family shelters, Anna Sample, was happy to accept a delicious catered meal courtesy of the Blue Monkey Tavern in Merchantville. The meal was generously donated by the Blue Monkey's owner Halil Gungor who personally delivered the food to Monique Reddick, Program Director and the 30 families staying with us. People like Halil give hope and show us that together, we will get through this crisis. #merchantvilleproud
