Ciresi announces relocation of closed Pottstown Photo Center

POTTSTOWN, Nov. 18 – After urging PennDOT to quickly relocate the closed Pottstown Photo Center, state Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, announced today that a new location has been found at 204 Shoemaker Road, Pottstown, PA 19464, which is less than 2 miles from the previous location. The new location is anticipated to open the week of Dec. 13.

“The Pottstown Photo License Center provides access to important photo services to many of my constituents,” Ciresi said. “I’m very glad PennDOT understood the importance of opening a local new facility to resume convenient access to these services as quickly as possible and appreciate their quick resolution of this issue.”

The previous Pottstown Photo License Center abruptly closed Oct. 4. Ciresi remained in contact with PennDOT after the closure and advocated for a quick reopening of a Pottstown-area center.
