Look Inside For ECRWSS Local Postal Customer MEMORIAL DAY May 18, 2013 Paper. News Good our Y www.MailMaxOnline.com POSTMASTER: Please deliver on May 18 , 2013 Volume 14, Ver. 20 Moody on The Market Jennifer Kenreich was born and raised in Kalamazoo and her husband is native to St. Joseph . At the moment they are living in South Haven , but they will soon make a triumphant return to St. Joe where Jennifer is moving her home décor business after nine years in downtown South Haven. By June 1 st Jennifer will open The Willow Tree at 605 Pleasant Street in downtown St. Joseph. Until recently that was the local office for Volunteer Southwest Michigan which relocated to the Benton Harbor Arts District. The Willow Tree is a haven for interior decorators both professional and personal. Jennifer carries all types of specialty home décor and gifts including candles, jewelry, quilts and floral arrangements. The store also fea-tures many personalized gifts as well. She tells me that she elected to make the move for two critical reasons. First, she wanted to find a site that is much less seasonal than the South Haven market where things boom in summer but fall off dramatically in the off season. Secondarily, South Haven’s off-season beginning in October will be “dramatically worse,” according to Jennifer, because a streetscape project will tear up the entire street including all sidewalks for six months or better. Rather than move after the summer season…she preferred to enjoy the summer in St. Joe and capitalize on the year-round nature of the local central business dis-trict. The phone number for the new store will be 269-982-1111 and initial plans are for daily hours of 10am until 6pm seven days a week, with plans for extended hours during the summer season. Congratulations, Jennifer, and welcome to your new business home in St. Joe. The Willow Tree is not alone among South Haven merchants discovering the year-round mar-ket available in downtown St. Joseph. Joining Jennifer in finding new digs downtown is the team from The Olive Cart. In their case, St. Joseph will be a second market, as they will retain their popular store in South Haven. The owners of The Olive Cart, Dave Drees and Jeff McDonald , are former bed and breakfast inn owners who have tradition-ally garnered top reviews from guests and distin-guished awards for their elaborate gourmet break-fasts. They also have many years in the restaurant industry, giving them a true appreciation for and understanding of great cuisine and the importance of outstanding flavor enhancements. As purveyors of high quality extra virgin olive oils and aged bal-samic vinegars, they showcase the same superior quality and delicious flavors that they have come to expect in fine food. The Olive Cart’s new tasting room and retail store will be locating very soon to 421 State Street , just as quickly as the staff of St. Joseph Today can vacate the premises for their new home at 301 State Street in the former Harbor Shores Discovery Center. The SJT Welcome Center is moving to the center of downtown to make room for the new retailer which was seeking a large space to showcase their olive oils, balsamic vinegars, tapenades, glazes, stuffed olives, fresh-baked breads, pastas, pestos, and unique gourmet gifts featuring Michigan made pottery. They will maintain the shop at 424 Phoenix Road in South M oody Pat w Back in the 300-block of State Street, our now open in the subdivision which has 22 homes Haven which opened in November of 2010, and you l friends at Forever Books will welcome Chicago built and land for well over a hundred more.

Moody On The Market

Pat Moody

Jennifer Kenreich was born and raised in Kalamazoo and her husband is native to St. Joseph. At the moment they are living in South Haven, but they will soon make a triumphant return to St. Joe where Jennifer is moving her home décor business after nine years in downtown South Haven. By June 1st Jennifer will open The Willow Tree at 605 Pleasant Street in downtown St. Joseph. Until recently that was the local office for Volunteer Southwest Michigan which relocated to the Benton Harbor Arts District. The Willow Tree is a haven for interior decorators both professional and personal. Jennifer carries all types of specialty home décor and gifts including candles, jewelry, quilts and floral arrangements. The store also features many personalized gifts as well. She tells me that she elected to make the move for two critical reasons. First, she wanted to find a site that is much less seasonal than the South Haven market where things boom in summer but fall off dramatically in the off season. Secondarily, South Haven’s offseason beginning in October will be “dramatically worse,” according to Jennifer, because a streetscape project will tear up the entire street including all sidewalks for six months or better. Rather than move after the summer season…she preferred to enjoy the summer in St. Joe and capitalize on the year-round nature of the local central business district. The phone number for the new store will be 269-982-1111 and initial plans are for daily hours of 10am until 6pm seven days a week, with plans for extended hours during the summer season. Congratulations, Jennifer, and welcome to your new business home in St. Joe.<br /> <br /> The Willow Tree is not alone among South Haven merchants discovering the year-round market available in downtown St. Joseph. Joining Jennifer in finding new digs downtown is the team from The Olive Cart. In their case, St. Joseph will be a second market, as they will retain their popular store in South Haven. The owners of The Olive Cart, Dave Drees and Jeff McDonald, are former bed and breakfast inn owners who have traditionally garnered top reviews from guests and distinguished awards for their elaborate gourmet breakfasts. They also have many years in the restaurant industry, giving them a true appreciation for and understanding of great cuisine and the importance of outstanding flavor enhancements. As purveyors of high quality extra virgin olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars, they showcase the same superior quality and delicious flavors that they have come to expect in fine food. The Olive Cart’s new tasting room and retail store will be locating very soon to 421 State Street, just as quickly as the staff of St. Joseph Today can vacate the premises for their new home at 301 State Street in the former Harbor Shores Discovery Center. The SJT Welcome Center is moving to the center of downtown to make room for the new retailer which was seeking a large space to showcase their olive oils, balsamic vinegars, tapenades, glazes, stuffed olives, freshbaked breads, pastas, pestos, and unique gourmet gifts featuring Michigan made pottery. They will maintain the shop at 424 Phoenix Road in South Haven which opened in November of 2010, and you can learn more about them at www.olivecart.com. <br /> <br /> While it was a whirlwind couple of weeks assembling all of the players to get the job done, St. Joe Today’s Jill Stone did a remarkable job of piecing together negotiations to acquire the new Welcome Center. Building owners at 301 State Street, LLC discounted the lease rate for the organization in a show of support for the merchant community, and work gets underway in earnest to both prep the new location and make way for the rapid turnover to The Olive Cart.<br /> <br /> Across State Street from the new Olive Cart Lynne Christiano is just days away from a major milestone at her Purely Michigan store at 406 State Street. On Memorial Day Lynne will celebrate her first anniversary in business at the highly successful gift store which features Michigan-made products. She’s calling it her “Let Them Eat Cake” Birthday Celebration, and is designing it as a huge thank you to her customers, complete with special sales all day long, and a prize drawing for a Purely Michigan gift certificate. Congratulations, Lynne!<br /> <br /> Back in the 300-block of State Street, our friends at Forever Books will welcome Chicago best-selling author Michael Harvey for a presentation and book-signing of his new crime novel The Innocence Game. That event comes up on Monday evening (5/20) at 7pm. It is part of a new “Top 20 & and Author” series. If you go, you will earn 20% off everything in the store that night and a free advance reader’s copy book. Space is limited, so reserve your seat by calling 982-1110.<br /> <br /> St. Joe’s Uptown neighborhood at the intersection of Niles Avenue and Main Street is getting a new business office in the form of Angel Eyed Design Build. Local Architect Brian Ludwig is launching his own practice after working with JWT Design and the crew at Allegretti Architects. Brian is a graduate of the University of Arkansas, and he tells me that he is hopeful of being up and running in his new space alongside the AT&T Phone Center at 1104 Niles Avenue early next month. His website at www.angeleyed.com has been registered and is currently under construction. His work is in residential architecture design.<br /> <br /> Travelers along M-139 have often seen the Open House balloons and signage in the sweeping curve ahead of the Somerlayton Bridge over the St. Joe River. Those colorful invitations are for Trumpeter Bay, an affordable quiet community with a private marina featuring riverside, lakeside and woodside lots and homes starting at $159,000.00 and lots from $26,000.00. Originally owned by developer Paul Watt and several investors, the property is now fully owned by developer Mike Friedman. Friedman recently successfully completed the river access channel that makes the interior marina a viable option. For years there was no way to get from the river proper to the small bay nearby. As a result, a 22-boat-slip private marina is now open in the subdivision which has 22 homes built and land for well over a hundred more. You can learn more at an open house at the model home, online at www.trumpeterbay.com or by contacting Mike directly at 303-522-2002. Check it out!<br /> <br /> Central Packaging & Fulfillment of Benton Charter Township is back with their major league one day only 2nd Annual Warehouse Sale at 1498 E. Empire Avenue.

Ron, a Marine Corps veteran, is both the owner and the technician in his one man shop for the repair of major household appliances including washers, dryers, refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, ranges, ovens and beyond.

He normally runs all calls within 24 to 48 hours of receiving them. If you need Ron’s help you can reach him at 985-8344.

The good doctor feels that the new name more accurately reflects the nature of her unique, energetic practice which is often full of children and their families, as well as her mission to create a healthier community of families living fully alive. She launched the business as the former Inner Balance Family Chiropractic office. Tara will offer a free Health Awareness Seminar for parents on Wednesday, May 29th at 12:15pm or Tuesday, June 4th at 7:15pm at her office in the Twin City Beauty College building at Lincoln & Niles Avenue. You can reserve a slot at 269-556-9654.<br /> <br /> The seven physician group known locally as Lakeside Healthcare Specialists will be moving their offices to the second floor of the Lakeland Health Park Medical Office Building at 3950 Hollywood Road.

You can reach the office at 983-7270. <br /> <br /> Just around the corner from the new doctor’s offices, Second Nature Gardens has opened a Retail Nursery. Situated directly across Glenlord Road from Adent’s Landscape Supply, Troy & Michelle Sremba and their extremely talented grounds crews are now offering annuals, perennials, flowering shrubs of all kinds and evergreen or deciduous trees. They also offer delivery and installation of your purchases, and if they don’t appear to have what you were looking for, they have many resources to help track them down for you. They are still very much a full service design and build landscape firm with a full maintenance department for both residential and commercial properties. You can find them on site weekdays from 10am until 5:30pm and Saturdays from 10 until 2. You can reach them at 429-0886.<br /> <br /> Nancy Maryniak of reVive Self Spa & Tanning in St. Joe has completed training to become a Wellness Consultant with the M’lis Company. As a result, her spa is now offering lifestyle change programs, utilizing 100% natural products with worldwide quality standards. You can reach Nancy at 982-3800 to learn more.<br /> <br /> Luke Brown and Victoria Holt of LPL Financial have a new home for their financial services business at 7889 Red Arrow Highway, just south of the Cook Nuclear Power Plant entrance. As always, however, they are willing to travel to meet you at the convenient location of your choosing. It’s a beautiful new space. Congrats, Luke & Victoria!<br /> <br /> If you were one of those looking on with envy last year when the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid was played at Harbor Shores because you failed to act in a timely manner to join the ranks of the volunteers with hands-on duties at the big event, here’s your chance to remedy that for the 2014 Championship. In recent weeks, those who volunteered last time have been afforded the chance to renew their commitment, and now the registration process has opened up for additional volunteers who would like to join the fun. Log onto: www.pga.com/seniorpga/2014 and then click on the volunteer button. You’ll be on your way to a great experience, and no longer on the outside looking in! Don’t wait too long, though, because more than 1,000 have already signed up ahead of you!<br /> <br /> Frank & Shar Walsh may have moved to Lansing, but they are still the sponsors of St. Joe’s Memorial Day Parade coming up next Friday (5/24) at noon along Lake Bluff Park. A short ceremony will follow at the band shell, and all veterans are invited to participate by calling the St. Joe Today Welcome Center at 985-1111.<br /> <br /> Speaking of parades, Summerfest in Stevensville is looking for participants in their Kids Bicycle Parade, Dog Summerfest Parade, and Art & Craft Booths and food vendors. If you are interested in reserving a spot in this new event contact Richard at 921-4846.<br /> <br /> That’s it for this week kids.
