    New and Unique Scranton Businesses Open Even Amidst Pandemic

    March 16, 2021

    The city of Scranton offers a wide variety of unique small-businesses and boasts a diverse array of restaurants offering something for everyone. To highlight our Scranton business partners both to the University and greater Scranton community, the University’s Office of Community Relations is offering weekly business alerts on its social media channels.

    Despite the challenges offered by the pandemic, several new businesses are opening in the city of Scranton. One of these new additions to our city is Commonwealth Coffeehouse, a new downtown café offering a variety of drinks and grab and go meal options, located on the corners of Penn Avenue and Lackawanna Avenue. This business was recently featured in the weekly business alert to let both community members and University students know about this great new addition to our downtown.

    This week’s feature, the Brooklyn Deli Grocery, is another new business on Cedar Avenue in South Scranton. The Brooklyn Deli Grocery offers many great options including pizza, subs, and empanadas, all available for safe takeout. By highlighting businesses like the Brooklyn Deli Grocery, the Office of Community Relations hopes to support these new additions to our Scranton community.

    The Office of Community Relations is working with a variety of community partners, including Scranton Tomorrow, United Neighborhood Centers of NEPA, and NeighborWorks of NEPA to identify new businesses in our area. In April the weekly business alerts feature hopes to highlight sustainable and eco-conscious businesses in the city of Scranton. Weekly business alerts will continue for the duration of the spring semester and feature new types of businesses monthly.

    To view the weekly business alerts, please follow the Office of Community Relations on its social media channels. Facebook: @uscrantoncommunityrelations; Instagram & Twitter: @uofscommunity.
