HERE’S THE SCOOP…
MARIELLA CREATIONS IN ROCKY HILL SOLD TO NEW OWNERS
It's a new beginning for a longtime favorite in Rocky Hill. Mariella Creations has been sold to Sarah Pskowski. Sarah and her mom are employees of Mariella's. Her mom, Nella, has worked there for 24 years! The sale comes on the heels of longtime owner, Mariella's, retirement. Mariella is still working part time and will be a great resource to Sarah. Sarah has been working there since she was 16 years old eventually moving up to Bridesmaid Department Manager. Later, after graduating from college, Sarah was torn between staying at Mariella's or pursuing other opportunities. She and her family discussed the idea of whether she should buy the business and VOILA...9 years later...here she is. WHAT. A. STORY! Now 25 and engaged to her fiance, Jason, Sarah is getting married in October 2024 and plans to keep Mariella Creations exactly the same. Her mom, Nella, will continue working there and her Dad has come onboard behind the scenes. A family affair! LOVE IT and THEM.
MAX BIBO'S SOLD/SEEKING APPROVAL FOR OUTDOOR DINING/COCKTAILS
Max Bibo's was sold to new owners. Longtime owner, Cari Colangelo posted on the Wethersfield Facebook group that she recently sold the deli to John and Aldi who will be making some exciting changes. They are seeking a special permit to add outdoor seating and alcohol to its restaurant at 691 Silas Deane Highway. The fan favorite wants to add cocktails people...Excuse Moi...yes please! It's like adding stud diamonds to your already favorite outfit! Are we right? Certainly an upgrade to this fun little spot. Stay tuned.
NAIL/BEAUTY SALON POTENTIALLY COMING TO TOWN
There was recently an application submitted to the town for a nail/beauty salon in the old Bev Max space near Home Goods. What an amazing idea for this space. Raise your hand if a day of shopping at Home Goods followed by mani/pedis is right up your alley?! This is still in the approval process, but fingers crossed!
CAVA POSSIBLY ADDING NEWINGTON LOCATION
We recently learned that CAVA may be coming to the new plaza in Newington. This is Medittaranean style restaurant There was a Facebook post stating that a lease has been signed, but when we reached out to the commercial real estate company, they said that's not the case, so we are just tapping our feet hoping and waiting! We will let you know as soon as they confirm!
