After more than 25 years of business in Eldersburg, the Think Oak furniture store will be moving to a new location in Manchester in mid-April.
Once the location is vacated, there will be a full renovation to the building, including the addition of apartments on the second floor, announced Ivy Wells, Main Street Manager.
The Liberty Bike Shop, previously located at 1912 Liberty Rd, Spc 1, is now closed.
The leather shop, In Step Leather recently closed, an additional branch of this shop can still be found in Elkridge. Undersea Outfitters, which offers dive and snorkeling trips and classes, will soon take over half of the leather shop’s old location (which was 2 stores originally).
The French Twist Cafe will open in the green building across from the Visitor Center in June of 2013. The café and French owner Helene Taylor have already been recognized: The café was named Best Emerging Business in the 2012 Carroll County Business Awards.
There are few details yet but Main Street Manager Wells also announced that an Antiques and Ceramics co-op is set to open next to EW Becks and that another potential restaurant will open in the 146-year-old building that used to be the St. Barnabas Episcopal Church Parrish house.
