Cortez Street Emporium expansion and name change
The owners of Cortez Street Emporium, Laura and Fred Hughes, have recently expanded their operation into the vacant space next door - which used to be Pennington's Antiques and Décor - and have renamed it The Marketplace on Cortez Street.
Rather than simply picking up where Pennington's owners Bonnie Devereaux and Mark Bargioni left off, the Hughes's have decided to make it their own.
"It's not going to be anything like Pennington's was before," Laura said.
After acquiring the space, the Hughes's hustled to get it open in just three weeks. They've changed where the check-out is, had custom work done on the windows, repainted the interior and even changed the formatting.
"We're doing it differently," Laura said. "It's more like staged kind of booths as opposed to popping stuff on shelves."
The Hughes's officially opened The Marketplace on Nov. 14. They currently have about 20 vendors and have yet to open up the back of the store.
The two stores are located at 115 and 117 N. Cortez St. and can be reached by calling 928-445-1460 or 928-541-0077.
Applebee's being remodeled
Prescott's Applebee's, located in the Frontier Village Center at 1881 Highway 69, is in the midst of remodeling, according to the restaurant's general manager John Luther.
At the moment, crews are working on the exterior of the building and have taken down the old Applebee's sign and replaced it with a banner. A new sign will be installed once the exterior is complete. The interior will also see some work done over the next couple of months.
"We're having it done in stages," Luther said.
The restaurant will continue to operate during its normal business hours.
Luther said they expect to close the store for only one day when they hold their grand opening - the date of which has not been determined. Applebee's across the state have been experiencing the same facelift.
New leadership in senior care
Tender Hearts Senior Care Non-Medical Service has a new leadership team in place.
They also have a new location, 1055 Ruth St. Ste. 6 in Prescott (across from Prescott High School). Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"We are currently looking to hire caregivers who are highly motivated and love working with the elderly," said Rebecca Cordova, Human Resources officer with Tender Hearts.
Cordova said they will train those interested and that they are accepting new clients as this time as well.
