Hopeful economic signs as Beach businesses expand

Two existing Colonial Beach business are in the process of expanding, a hopeful sign for the Westmoreland County economy which has been struggling for the past several years.

Beverly and Lloyd Alspaugh, well-known owners of the Rankin’s Hardware and the Rankin’s Appliance and Furniture stores, will open their latest business venture on Friday, Oct. 4, The Peddler’s Market, at 501 Euclid Avenue.

And, Bobbi Adamson, the popular owner of The River Gym is moving her physical fitness business into newly remodeled space in the old Metro Golf Carts building at 116 Washington Avenue.

The indoor Peddler’s Market will be located in newly remodeled 10,000 square foot space where the old Rankin’s Hardware store was located before it moved to the other end of Colonial Plaza.

“We’ve been talking about doing this for about a year,” said Beverly Alspaugh.  “We just decided to go ahead and do it. We want to fill up this shopping center.”

The new indoor market will feature 50 booths for artists, craftsmen, antiques, collectibles and gift items.

“Space will be available by the month,” said Alspaugh. “We hope to have a number of serious small business owners participating.”

The Peddler’s Market will be open Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. And will be open Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Vendors seeking pre-leasing information can call Beverly Alspaugh at 540-680-0103.

The River Gym opened June 1 at 215A Washington Avenue and has clearly been a hit with Colonial Beach residents. “We expected to be here a year,” said Chelsey Swisher, the River Gym’s manager.  “But our membership has expanded so swiftly that we needed to expand.”

The new 6,000 square foot River Gym location, which is expected to be in operation by Nov. 1, will feature additional exercise equipment, more space for classes as well as showers and  locker rooms for River Gym members.

The River Gym is open Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Memberships are $44 per month. For more information, please call 804-410-2058.
