GLOUCESTER-Gloucester County continues to see new businesses open and existing businesses prosper, according to Gloucester County’s Economic Development Director Sherry Spring. Several local businesses are relocating to larger spaces as their operations expand in addition to new ventures on the horizon.

The following business moves are in the works:

Images & Sound Gallery is moving into the White Marsh Shopping Center next to the White Marsh property owner’s office.

Thrift Miss is planning a move to larger space in the White Marsh Shopping Center in early December.

Quality Inn is undergoing a major renovation and will be changing its hotel flag to a Holiday Inn Express in early 2022, according to its general manager, Lakisha Fox.

Golden Creations Jewelers is moving from York River Crossing Shopping Center to the Point Shoppes, formerly known as Gloucester Point Shopping Center.

Body By D is moving from an 1,800 square foot space to a 5,000 square foot space next to Food Lion in York River Crossing Shopping Center.

Several new businesses have also opened in Gloucester, including Coastal Country Kitchen, a restaurant providing soups, salads, and sandwiches. The new restaurant is in The Point Shoppes. Della’s Daughters, a custom furniture shop, has also opened in The Point Shoppes. Lisa and J.J. Murray are the new owners of The Point Shoppes.

“During a time that it seems like we are hearing more and more troubling economic news, Gloucester seems to be a shining light,” said Spring. “Our businesses are resilient, and our local economy is strong. We are extremely grateful for that.”

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 feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
