Three new businesses run by the same family officially call Endicott their home. As Carmella Mataloni reports, a grand opening for each new business will be held on Friday.
ENDICOTT, N.Y. -- Three new businesses from the same family open Friday on Washington Avenue in Endicott.
Despite being owned by the same people, each business is completely different from the other. Colorful Surroundings is a shop for crafts and novelty items. It will sell a variety of items, including clothing, jewelry, handmade soaps, and candles.
Cheveau Design is a salon and spa. The third business is Carousel Cafe.
Joseph Moody is the Director of Economic Development in the town of Union. He said it's exciting to see new businesses and new opportunities come to the area.
"I think it's a great opportunity. They obviously recognized the potential that Washington Avenue has, and the traffic they have now. With BE Systems employees moving in, kids on campus and all that. With the U-E schools on the other side, there's quite a few employees down there, so a lot of traffic," explained Moody.
A ribbon cutting will be held for each of these grand openings on Friday afternoon.
