Former Yahoo CEO Relegated to Beautiful Conshohocken

You Conshohocken commuters may find yourself sitting in traffic next to an internet millionaire! As it turns out, Former Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson is now working in Conshohocken as the CEO of ShopRunner, a much smaller, private e-commerce company.

Scott’s career change was not exactly his own choice, as he was asked to leave Yahoo when investigators found a false academic claim on his resume. Apparently, he does not actually possess that bachelor’s degree in computer science. Thompson has since claimed that a placement firm was responsible for the error and that he was unaware it was on his resume.

Thompson will have his work cut out for him at ShopRunner, a service that offers free two-day shipping and returns from various stores for a $79 annual membership fee. The group appears to be struggling at this point and, according to Bloomberg Business Week, it does not have many big retailers on board while it attempts to compete with Amazon.com and other powerful companies.

So, welcome to Conshohocken, Scott! Jimmy John’s has pretty fast delivery for lunch (the Wawa gets real crazy around noon) and you’re definitely going to want to check out 7th Heaven Gentlemen’s Club on Hector Street.

Just, please, never, under any circumstances, refer to it as “Conshy.”

    Don’t you mean refer to it AS Conshy?  Where are your proofreaders?

    Proof readers are dead. Send help please.

    Um…we refer to it as the Conshohocken Ballet.  Sheesh!

  • Dani

    Not refer to it as “Conshy”? If only you had a clue and knew what you were writing about.

  • Mborko

    When was the last time you were in Conshy?
    Wawa isn’t in Conshy and 7th Heaven doesn’t even rate as a “Gentlemen’s Club”

  • Daniann77

    PS the Ballet is technically in Whitemarsh. Someone please give this writer the Pulitzer!!!

    Mborko, our offices are in Conshohocken, directly next to 7th Heaven. The Gentlmen’s Club mention was a CLEARLY a joke.

    What is the ballet, we didn’t mention anything about a ballet?

    In her bio she also needs to write she is strongly opposed to writing well and knowing anything about what is “around philly.” Seriously, what an embarrassment.  Perhaps her lazy Sundays could be better spent by doing a bit more research on what she is writing about or even (probably a stretch here) taking a trip out to Conshy and seeing the great things in the community.

    Once again, our offices are IN CONSHOHOCKEN and we work here every day. The statements you’re taking issue with were added by me, the editor of this site, not our intern, which is why I changed the author info. 

    Please forgive me for the inexcusable error of implying that the Wawa is in Conshohocken when it is, in fact, just outside the limits, literally less than a minute by car.

  • I❤Conshy

    It’s not the issue of Wawa. Although, if you paid attention to the fact that Wawa is a touchy issue for Conshy, you would hesitate in mentioning them. Stating that your office is in CONSHOHOCKEN doesn’t make you an expert in what happens here.  Try stepping out of your office or make a bit more of an effort to know what you are writing about. 

  • Daniann77

    If you are from Conshy you know what the ballet is…to those who transplant here, it is 7th Heaven…but again…it is in Whitemarsh, not Conshy.

    I don’t live here.

    The attempt to entertain is far from it and more or less an insult to those that love Conshy.  Instead of mentioning the businesses you do, some of the privately owned/family businesses/eateries that have made Conshy the place where you want to raise a family should have been mentioned.  Please do your research instead of typing away in your offices that NEIGHBOR Conshohocken.
