NEW FITNESS STUDIO OPENING NEAR WHOLE FOODS
A personal training studio will OPEN January 1st between Sartorius Sports and StateFarm in the Whole Foods plaza. Fitness Together is a franchise with locations across the country. This one is owned by Glastonbury resident, Jim Albrycht, who says the concept is one-on-one training with customized plans based on the needs and wants of clients. Check out their national website to see some pretty impressive testimonial results.
TEAM SPORTS SHUTS DOWN GLASTONBURY LOCATION
Team Sports in Eric Town Square is now CLOSED. The space is now FOR LEASE and a sign on the door says orders for in-store pickup will be shipped to customers at no charge. The Farmington location is still open.
*On a side note...we think this would be a perfect location for a women's clothing boutique....anyone with us?
ELICIT BREWING OPENS TODAY
Elicit Brewing in Manchester is now OPEN. The new brewery/restaurant by the same owners of Eli's on Whitney is located in the old Adam's Mill. They did a nice job transforming the space into a cool, new spot. They held a few soft-opening nights this past weekend, but open to the general public TODAY. See pics of the inside below.
EL POLLO GUAPO LATEST
The sign is up for the new El Pollo Guapo location on New London Turnpike. We spoke with the owners about a month ago and they said it would be another three weeks or so before they opened, so they are getting close. The inside looks near complete. Can't wait for this to finally be in town! Click HERE to see a menu and start planning your visit.
