What Goes in the Old Art & Drafting Connection?

In recent months, Westgate Mall store was home to Lehigh Valley Republican Victory Center. A week after the election, it is once again vacant.


Back in May, we wrote about the vacant storefront at the once popular Art & Drafting Connection in the Westgate Mall that had been vacant for a couple of years.

Not long after that, a temporary purpose was found for the space: The Lehigh Valley Republican Victory Center became a hub for volunteers to meet, pick up signs and make telephone calls on behalf of GOP candidates.

On the day before Election Day, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and actor Jon Voight came to the center to thank and fire up volunteers to keep pushing for Mitt Romney to win Pennsylvania.

A week later, barely a trace of the pre-election activity remains. The large storefront is once again vacant.

For years, it was the home of the Art & Drafting Connection, a well-liked store that sold stationery, office supplies, greeting cards, children’s learning books, artists’ supplies including pencils, paints, brushes and pads and also did custom framing.
