There has been some concern re the amount of businesses in Stonehaven that have closed recently but there has been strong demand to replace them. Several business owners are retiring this year but they didn't have to wait long for another business to take over. Stonehaven is still a very popular place and shops are not empty for long. Here are some of the changes.
Here and Now next to Bus Station is now Stellas and have built up steady trade within a few weeks. Openn till 10pm so this should be good for tourists in the summer.
Dorothy Jacks has closed but he premises will be opening soon as a Kitchen Studio
Elizabeth Havens, Laurencekirk is taking over the premises of Footprint and opening a Ladies Fashion Shop.
Niall Menzies of Footprint is taking over an existing Shoe Repair and Keycutting shop in Ann Stree at the end of this month.
The owner of Euronics is retiring in 2 weeks but negotiations are almost completed for a new business to take over the premises.
I have received several emails recently on http://www.stonehavenguide.net/ praising Stonehaven so many people love the town.
