Now that ShopRite has found a new home in Whitman Plaza, the shopping center is full of tenants with food, clothing and quite a few other retail options throughout. Everything from Burlington Coat Factory to PennDot is located in the plaza.
To allow for easier shopping during the holiday season, Whitman Plaza will have a free trolley service running through the plaza from 11 a.m. through 9 p.m., Thursday through Sunday.
The PennDOT Driver License Center at Tasker Street and Columbus Boulevard has packed up shop and moved further south to 330 W. Oregon Avenue in the Whitman Plaza.

The move, which happened last month, is notable for two reasons. First, the area in and around Tasker Street and Water/Front Street is now infinitely safer (at least for other car drivers) given that there will no longer be continuous driving tests taking place throughout the day and on weekends.
