A staple of the Skippack community, the Wooden Duck Shop has been providing sophistication and style to women all across our region for over 40 years! Purchased in 2000 by Art and Jane Berger, the Wooden Duck Shop has kept their historic roots intact by offering an amazing level of customer service combined with a store full of products that everyone can relate to. Art and Jane are not your typical owners, and we mean that in the best way possible! The two long time Skippack enthusiasts have always supported the many businesses that reside in Montco’s most charming, and now very happening small town. Art has always worked with his fellow shop owners to host community events and fundraisers, all to help the local areas that he is so proud to be a part of. Art and Jane believe that more of Montgomery County should see and experience the new and exciting things that are happening in Skippack, and we couldn’t agree with them more. As one of the longest tenured businesses in town the Wooden Duck Shop is looking forward to showing you their brand new baby boutique, and of course their wide array of gifts, collectibles and clothing that has made them one of the best one stop shops to visit in our county.
Open seven days a week, visiting customers are very likely to find both owners working on the shop and greeting each customer that walks through the doors. You might even be welcomed by Sophie, Wooden Duck’s newest and smallest four legged employee! Art and Jane are incredibly proud of their boutique and the small town it resides in, and after fifteen successful years of bringing quality products to our local shoppers, that pride goes without saying. Their effort into the store and into the community as a whole is more than worth recognizing, and Montco Happening is honored to do so.
