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.
