HERE’S THE SCOOP…
The Scoop will be off now until the New Year. We hope you enjoy the holiday season with your family and friends!
AFFORDABLE, GORGEOUS PIECES AT GOZZO JEWELERS
Deb Gozzo has decades of retail experience! Starting at her aunt and uncle's resort store in Maine when she was 13, she moved up to larger stores like Sage Allen, Ames, D&L, and Weathervane (all of the 80's retail greats!). She soon found her niche in jewelry after going back to work after kids. The opportunity came up for her to buy a jewelry store and, well, she did (love a dream-come-to-life story). Gozzo Jewelers, next to Plan B in Eric Town Square, offers some gorgeous pieces in a range of price points...something for EVERY budget! Stop in and try their unique Naomi Jewelry (local from Avon), or OUR FAVE: the stackable birth stone rings, their fab gold necklaces, or one of their diamond pieces.
HEALTHTRAX HAS A NEW LOOK AND GREAT HOLIDAY DEAL
Healthtrax recently got a facelift! The health and wellness center renovated their lobby area, daycare, and weight room. And, right now, they're offering a major deal. Their Holiday Fit Pack includes a one-month membership, one training session, a fitness assessment, and an InBody 570 Scan. InBody is a comprehensive view of body composition and includes a look at the fat around your organs (can't put a price on that, can you?!). Their facility is one-of-a-kind in town...the only gym right now with a daycare and a pool...amazing for moms with kiddos. We met some of our greatest friends there. Let's kick start 2020 off the right way people! Check out their new space below and call them to get the Holiday Fit Pack: 860.652.7066.
PURE BARRE TO SOMERSET
Pure Barre is coming to Somerset Square at the end of February 2020! The barre studio chain has 500 studios across the U.S. and Canada. The owner of this location is based out of Massachusetts, but owns nine franchises within the organization. They will be located between Max Fish and The Simple Greek in a space that will soon be renovated. Right now they are offering 20% off to become a founding member. Click HERE to sign up!
GENO'S NEW RESTAURANT OPENS THIS WEEK

Cafe Aura opens Tuesday and will feature a varied selection of delicious dishes like sea bass, tuna, and steak, along with savory pastas.

ODDS & ENDS…
*Did you get a chance to see the steam locomotive at Cavanna's? We are, admittedly, obsessed! It arrived last week and opened this past weekend. It's $35 for the "experience" of becoming the conductor of the train. You get to shovel coal and operate the train. Next year (Christmas 2020), they will offer rides in passenger cars through their land to a log cabin where you will be greeted by Santa. Pretty darn cool. Below are some drone shots from Joe Gowac. He does amazing work! Follow him on Insta!
*There is currently a proposal to build a Chase Bank to the right of the second rotary in the center of town. Right now, there are two buildings there in need of repair (we notice these things), but they will be torn down if the plan passes. The bank proposal is going through town hall. We will keep you posted!
