Business Buzz
By Rich Baehrle

Somers Point recently welcomed Somers Point Cycles at 604 New Road next to the Drip and Scoop. It has been a long time since Somers Point has had a bicycle business. In fact, it was located for many years in the same building that now hosts Somers Point Cycles.

The business features new and used bicycles. They also offer E-Bikes, and full-service repairs on all makes and models. It is a true one-stop shop.

Not far away in Egg Harbor Township, the surgery practice of Dr. Khashayar Salartash has joined AtlantiCare.

Dr. Salartash and his team have decades of experience in advanced, minimally invasive vascular and general surgical techniques focused on less pain, improved healing and better mobility.

AtlantiCare also leased the surgical center along with additional medical office space located at 301 Central Ave., Egg Harbor Township.

Other recent activity in Egg Harbor Township includes approvals for three new mini-storage facilities totaling approximately 360,000 square feet. The projects will have a substantial impact on the local storage market.

One facility of 103,000 square feet will be located at 6679 Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township, where the former Zeus gun shop was for approximately 30 years. It’s owned by Uncle Matt’s Storage, LLC. It is a great location across from Wawa and McDonalds.

A second facility was approved for 106,000 square feet along with outside storage located on Ocean Heights Avenue in Egg Harbor Township across from the McCullough’s Emerald Golf Links. It is a great location to take advantage of the demand from Ocean City.

The third facility currently being developed is located at 3326 Bargaintown Road in Egg Harbor Township. The 103,000 square-foot project is next to the Bright Star Gymnastics Academy. With all of the new storage coming online, I hope the demand is there.

Just a reminder please shop local. Support your local businesses and services. They are your neighbors and friends. When we do this everybody benefits.
