WANG PALACE MOVING…ANN TAYLOR CLOSING

HERE’S THE SCOOP…


FAVORITE RESTAURANT LEAVING TOWN


Many will be sad to hear that Wang Palace is moving to Rocky Hill! The long standing restaurant, which has a cult-like following, has been in Glastonbury for 25 years. Sai, the owner, admits the move is bittersweet. He says they have purchased a building at 1914 Silas Deane Highway across from Kohl’s. The space will undergo complete renovations before the move and will have a bigger bar area for patrons. They will be in their new location by the end of this year. There is a drawing of the new exterior and signage below.


We covered a story about this plaza a few weeks ago. To refresh your memory, all businesses must move. There is no known deadline yet for them to move. We are still waiting to hear about new locations for Liquid Nirvana and Bollywood. We have heard both will stay in town.



CLOTHING STORE LEAVING SOMERSET


Ann Taylor in The Shops at Somerset Square will CLOSE at the end of August. The popular clothing store has been in the plaza for years, but will close by August 25th. A sign in the store says they hope customers will visit their Westfarms location. We are waiting to hear back from Somerset about what might go in that space.



CRYOTHERAPY BUSINESS NOW OPEN


Glastonbury Cryotherapy opens TODAY. They are located at 730 Hebron Avenue next to F45 Training. They will be open limited hours to start…Mon/Wed/Fri 8:00 to 10:00 AM and 4:00-6:00 PM and Sat/Sun 8:00 to 10:00 AM.

WHOLE FOODS/AMAZON PRIME DISCOUNT


Did you know about the Amazon Prime discount at Whole Foods? If you have a Prime account, you can download the Whole Foods Market app and get exclusive discounts throughout the store, plus 10% off sale items. We were impressed with some of the options, including organic strawberries at 2 for $5 or Waterloo seltzer 2 for $7! Happy Healthy shopping!


ODDS AND ENDS…


*Chick-fil-A at The Shops on Main will open this Thursday, July 26th. They will begin their First 100 celebration at 6:00 AM Wednesday. 100 guests will have a chance to camp out overnight and get FREE meals. Go to their website for details.


*Gutt Family Farm on Addison Road has their famous corn out for sale! We love corn season and wait for their corn to come out every Summer. They currently have bi-color for $6.50 a dozen.


*Glastonbury is one of the first towns in the state to launch a food waste collection program. In collaboration with Quantum BioPower and All Waste, residents can bring their raw or cooked food waste to the transfer station for disposal. There are marked containers at the station. The waste will eventually be used to generate renewable energy.


*Welles-Turner Memorial Library is offering some fantastic programs for teens 7 to 12 years old this summer. There is Teen Karaoke Coding where teens essentially learn how to design their own beat box. Other classes will show teens how to design their own tote bag or plastic tumbler using the library’s new Silhouette machine. Registration is required. Hit their website for dates and times.


*Bliss Body Soul is hosting a unique event at The Barn in South Glastonbury. BITCH ON THE MAT will be a two-hour long event with one hour of speaking your mind and one hour of power yoga. It’s a chance to connect with people, express yourself, and listen. The event is August 17th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. You must register with the MINDBODY app.


*Barn Door Blooms is working with Gutt Family Farm for a flower arranging event at Birch Hill Tavern. This Saturday, July 28th, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM, they will host a flower arranging class for $75 that includes a farm fresh menu, prepared by the chef, and a cocktail.
