Letter from the Editor:

Welcome to 08108, a new mag- azine uncovering the stories behind your borough. Collingswood is a vibrant community, and in our first issue, we wanted to capture that spirit with a variety of stories. We talk business. We crack open the history books. We introduce you to your neighbors. We indulge in that perfect cup of coffee (or three). In 08108, you’re going to find a little bit of everything, touching on the familiar while discovering something new.

It’s no secret Collingswood has established itself as a shopping and dining destination in not only South Jersey, but beyond. You can read all about the borough’s business climate and how it has impressed with its retail reputation – and plans to continue to do so into the future.

Fall back in time with the CollingsKnight House, the 194-year old structure around which the borough has grown and evolved, and then come back to the future when you read about Collingswood resident Kimberly Mutcherson, who is forging a remarkable, impressive path as the first woman, the first African American and the first LGBT law dean at Rutgers Law School in Camden.

Do you love coffee? Beer? What about a little of both? Explore what Collingswood (and nearby Oaklyn) have to offer in Borough brews.
We hope you enjoy our inaugural issue as much as we enjoyed creating it. We look forward to exploring Collingswood with you!
