New Business opens in Gloucester – Cape Ann Electric Bikes – “portable convertible”

Owner Kathy Reed opened the first and only AddMotor exclusive retail shop in the country a month ago, in the off season, in order to gear up and be fully ready for a busy 2019 rental season

Cape Ann Electric Bikes rolled into “The Commons” plaza at 214 Eastern Avenue, Gloucester, MA, in the corner space formerly occupied by The Urchin Exchange. “The Commons” shopping center is just past Pond Road and Common Crow along Rt. 127. Stores include Cake Ann and O’Neil Fitness.

Cape Ann Electric Bikes are bikes (“not scooters!”) equipped with an optional motor assist that’s set to a maximum 20mph for safe rentals.  There are many styles and options to try out. All of the bikes are fitted with fat tires to accommodate year round enjoyment, all terrain, and New England weather. Snow? Sand? Wet leaves? Check check check. Bicycles built for two? Check. There are accessory trailers for tools, coolers, pets and kids. The shop will deliver rentals to your home or business. Cape Ann Electric Bike offers free assembly for bike sales and will comp a full day’s rental towards any purchase if you want to try before buying.

Fun facts:

Cape Ann Electric Bikes will be showcasing their NEW business –and Gloucester and Cape Ann– at booths in the New England International Auto Show, host to 75,000 visitors annually and  “voted the #1 consumer show in Boston by Bis Bash Media for the last 3 years.” Stop by January 17-21.

Owner Kathy Reed grew up in Gloucester and resides in Essex. She is a Mayor’s daughter. Can you name the Mayor? She’s currently favoring that bike with the blue wheels.

Just a shave away | The Black Bear Barber Shop opts for a different Main Street location

East End Main Street, Gloucester, Massachusetts, street-level retail news

Before building out a new space at 261 Main Street, next door to Alexandra’s Bread, The Black Bear Barber Shop will set up instead across the street at 260 Main Street. The business will be the first commercial tenant in the new 260 Main Street multi use building. (Cape Ann Animal Aid was the last tenant in the razed building.) There was a chance to customize plumbing for a ground floor retail space and it might mean more customer parking.

Settling into 260 Main Street rather than 261 means that 261 Main Street (Eastern Point Lit House was last there and seasonally PRESENT) is available to rent.

Grand opening coming soon for a new business in Magnolia- the All Purpose Flower Shop  29 Lexington Avenue, Gloucester, Ma.

There are no florists in Manchester or Magnolia so this is a welcome addition. Owner Linda Brown set up a booth at the Magnolia Sip n Shop with autumnal dried and silk arrangements. Her boutique will have fresh flowers and designs for special events and on line orders. Loved the festive on brand dress! Find her work on Instagram and Facebook https://allpurposeflowers.net/
