Work Nimbly Co-working Space Up For Sale

WILLIAMSBURG-Work Nimbly, Williamsburg’s creative co-working space, is for sale.

Co-owners Gretchen Bedell and Jenn Haynes are looking for a new buyer for the business after an initial sale fell through due in part to the pandemic.

The pair first put Work Nimbly up for sale a few months ago. Bedell and Haynes are pursuing another unspecified project.

Work Nimbly first opened seven years ago in James City County as a way for independent workers to share an office space.

“Work Nimbly is a profitable business, and even more so as companies are shifting to more remote work,” Bedell and Haynes wrote in a joint statement about the sale. “This gig is the perfect fit for someone who needs to have a physical office but doesn’t want to work alone or has a staff member who needs to be present all day. Or for someone who’s looking to make a change and wants to run a business.”

Work Nimbly relocated to Williamsburg on Penniman Road a few years ago and will continue to utilize the space after the sale.

“Greater Williamsburg needs co-working and a space for small businesses and entrepreneurs to work and grow their companies,” the statement concluded.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
