Lots of companies have been busy in the Adirondacks during the past few weeks! Check out these six headlines about businesses that have been opening, expanding, and relocating.
Bread Shop & Home Furnishings Store Open In Schroon Lake
Lisa and Edward Marks were New York City residents who spent summers in the Schroon area, until recently when the pair decided to permanently relocate and start new business ventures.
Together, the two have opened North Woods Bread Co. and Pine Cone Mercantile that share a location on Main Street in Schroon Lake.
Edward oversees the bakery, which produces white, wheat, multigrain, and specialty loaves. Lisa spends her time selling crafts, furniture, and home-related goods on the other side of the business.
The two ventures have been open since the early summer and plan to continue operating throughout the year.
Unique Resale Shop Open In Ticonderoga
If you’re looking for a place to purchase or sell a variety of one-of-a-kind items, look no further than La Chute Plaza in Ticonderoga. The resale venture was opened on Montcalm Street at the end of the summer by Darlene Dorsett, and is managed by her son, Thomas.
According to Sun Community News, “customers can expect to see a wide variety of furniture, crafts, and other collectibles in the store,” with items including “travel trunks, rare books, and furniture.”
The items range in price, so customers can obtain unique treasures regardless of their budgets.
Pearl Physical Therapy Relocates, Becomes Part Of Adirondack Integrative Wellness
Elizabeth Pearl recently relocated her physical therapy practice to 135 South Peru Street in Plattsburgh, and in doing so expanded to create Adirondack Integrative Wellness. While the physical therapy clinic occupies more than half of the new space, other services are now offered in the same location, including acupuncture, massage therapy, nutrition, mental-health counseling, and art therapy, according to The Press Republican.
Three providers are currently leasing space within Adirondack Interactive Wellness, but own and operate their practices independently from Pearl’s.
The Press Republican reports that having one location offer a variety of health and wellness services has been a goal of Pearl’s for many years, and she is thrilled to see it finally come to fruition.

Bark Avenue Now Open In New Location
Warrensburg’s Lotus Group of Companies has expanded yet again, and now includes a dog grooming salon.
The Group took over River Street Plaza’s K9 Komfort when owner Wendy Maltbie moved to Arizona, and recently relocated the venture to its property at 106 River Street and re-branded it as Bark Avenue.
The new space is larger than the salon’s previous one, which allows it to better serve new and existing clients. The plan is to keep the business client-focused and friendly, just like it was under Maltbie.
Saranac Lake Live Music Venue Closes
In early September, it was announced that The Waterhole #3 in Saranac Lake had closed. Although the bar and music venue on Main Street was popular among artists and music lovers, business wasn’t sufficient enough to pay the bills.
