No Gentlemen’s Club For Havertown

There will be no strip club planned for the Manoa Shopping Center.

From a post on a message board about Trader Joe’s to tweets or readers emailing the Haverford-Havertown Patch, rumors of a gentlemen’s club going into the Manoa Shopping Center have been spreading.

But you might want to keep those one-dollar bills.

“There is no gentlemen’s club coming to Havertown,” Assistant Township Manager Lori Hanlon-Widdop told Patch after the township commissioners’ meeting on Monday night.

She said that state law requires townships to set aside space for a possible strip club and that space would be an industrial park. An example of an industrial park in Havertown would be where the (the former bubble gum factory) or , both on Eagle Road.

But the Manoa Shopping Center is not an industrial park, so even if there was a gentlemen’s club coming into Havertown, it could not set up shop in the center, explained Hanlon-Widdop. 

"You can't prohibt (strip clubs) but you have to put them in a certain location," she said.

You keep defending a cop,John, who lied and said healy had Alcohol on his breath,and lied when he said that healy pushed him.You lied John,when you said there was no valet parking lot attentent. Is it standard Practice at the H.TPD. to lie,doctor affidavit of probable cause,falsify police reports, tamper with evidence,commit perjury,assualt people without cause. Is that what takes place when they train recruits of H.T.P.D. or is it just you and your mentor,officer Shield's.

Well, Healy would not have gotten into this mess if he had stayed off the road while he was high as a kite, smoking pot and driving on a suspended license. He was driving around and rolling joints on 4th of July, luckily he did not kill anyone driving that wreck of a vehicle, blowing bong hits of reefer. He was all stoned up smoking a bowl of grass and wheeling around Havertown, not good.
