Myrtle Ave Update from MARP

Sweeeeeeet. *** Just wanted to drop some pre-holiday news and let everyone know that our shiny new Bank of America branch at Myrtle & Waverly opened its doors to customers yesterday morning. Stay tuned for a grand opening celebration in January.

There are also a number of locally-owned small businesses that have just opened, or are opening soon. Please be sure to pay them a visit and show them your support.

As always, updates on openings, store hours, and store contact info are available as we receive them.
