Nearby Doylestown’s sports memorabilia shop, The Monkey’s Uncle, boasts an inclusive inventory of vintage Phillies, Eagles, 76ers, and Flyers apparel. But its inclusiveness extends to the workforce as well. Vittoria Woodill reported on its unique employees for CBS3 Philly.
When Jeanell and Derrick Morgan’s son Braden was born with autism, it was time for a course correction for the family’s professions.
They decided to swing for the fences in 2020 and open a vintage sports clothing shop.
It not only fed Derrick’s life-long passion for local sports, it provided the flexibility Braden needed for aspects of his care like doctor appointments.
Jeanell, grateful for the opportunities the store enabled for her son, has now decided to pay it forward.
She launched an initiative she called Worth the Wait Wednesdays.
She explained: “I posted on Social Media that we’re doing Worth the Wait Wednesdays. This means that there will be an individual here throughout the day that might take a few extra minutes to do your transaction.”
The store’s clientele embraced the concept wholly.
“Everybody came on Wednesdays,” she laughed.
The store offers vintage-inspired and retro clothing for the entire family.
