Vacant: Several storefronts are available within Horsham Towne Square, a shopping center situated at Horsham and Norristown roads.
Description: The original location of Bryn and Dane's, as well as space previously leased by Encore Kitchens and Dance to the Music is empty.
Size: 5,000 square feet total
Zoning: C-2 (Commercial) Permitted uses include retail, restaurant, personal service shop, retail service shop (including bakeries, household appliance shops, clock, watch, or jewelry shop, custom tailoring, etc), banks, municipal building.
History: Joe Ventresca, the center’s owner since 1984, said Horsham Square Pharmacy had been located there until it was bought out by CVS. Neither of the businesses remain in the plaza, which is home to TheraPlay, Simply Twisted Frozen Yogurt, Bagel and Bread House and more.
The Challenge: “Just the economy in general. It’s hard for little ma and pas to get start up money,” Ventresca said.

Potential: “A handful of small businesses” serving the residents and other local businesses would be the perfect complement, according to Ventresca.
