New Businesses in Westminster

Stop in and welcome Westminster's new businesses.

Two new businesses have popped up in Westminster and both have to do with looking good, just in time for summer.

Sports Clips hair salon has opened a new location at 625 Baltimore Blvd (the shopping center where Pet Smart is) in Westminster. According to the website, Sports Clips is the place for men to get a new 'do'.

They advertise that in only 20 minutes, visitors can enjoy sports on TV, a relaxing neck and shoulder massage, steamed towel treatment, and a haircut from "Guy-Smart" stylists who specialize only in men's and boys' hair care.

Tell us in the comments: what new businesses you would like to see in Westminster.

But before you get the hair done, consider breaking a sweat with Dani Knight, owner of Dani K Gym & Wellness, a new gym opening at the end of April. The gym is located at 332 140 Village Road (behind Starry Night Bakery).

According to the website, Dani K will offer personal training, group training, nutrition consulting, massage therapy and tanning. The gym will be open 24/7.

So let me get this straight. By my account in the Westminster area there are four locally owned private fitness centers and one national chain in addition to the city facility and the y. And the private sector is being hurt badly by this how? Will they offer low cost after school programs for kids like the Westminster municipal facility?Do they offer sports like soccer, t-ball, basketball and lacrosse like the Y? Not to mention the myriad youth sports programs offered by rec councils on county- and municipal-owned land? Cosmo, if you don't like the competition, either move to a town/county that doesn't compete with the private sector in the recreation/gym/wellness market or vote in people who want to eliminate those programs -- assuming you can get the majority of voters to agree with you.

We better close down public pools too. And Baltimore City and County and Frederick County and others better close down all those publically operated golf courses, too. Forget that economic development studies have shown that many times companies like to move to areas that have recreational opportunities for their executive AND their rank-and-file workers.

Why did Sport Clips move in the first place? Just curious.

Three guesses: better visibility on140, better deal on the rent and/or desire by Cranberry Square management to free up the spcae. The've done alot of shifting around since Jos. A Bank moved in and the liquor store moved to the middle of the shopping center.

Here's when we will get a Wegman's: When our population and demographics are similar to Fredserick's OR when the have built stores in all of the large population centers then start to fill in smaller communities. Remember we didn't have a Safeway here until around 1980 (version 1.0) and again in the late 90s (version 2.0) and we never had a (Maryland) Giant until Craberry Square opened about 20 years ago. Remember that they have only been in the Baltimore/DC market for about 5 years and only hgave a handful of stores in this region. Their first targets will be densely populated and financially stable suburban communities like Hunt Valley, Owings Mills, Columbia, Annapolis and Severna Park in the Baltimore market and places like Frederick, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, Landover, Fiarfax, Alexandria and Tyson's around DC. Then and only then will they start hitting Bel Air, Westminster, White Marsh, Catonville and such around Baltimore.
