Two Established Middlebury Businesses Celebrate New LocationsBy Sue Hoxie
Otter Creek Kitchenware and Electronics and Edgewater Gallery on the Green Move into Prime Downtown Retail Space
Middlebury, Vermont – July 30, 2015 – The Addison County Chamber of Commerce congratulates its members Otter Creek Kitchenware and Electronics and Edgewater Gallery on the Green on the openings of their new locations in downtown Middlebury’s Battell Block. Otter Creek Kitchenware and Electronics has moved from the Marble Works to 16 Merchants Row and Edgewater Gallery, has opened its second location, known as Edgewater Gallery on the Green, in Middlebury at the corner of Merchants Row and Main Street. Edgewater Gallery will maintain its current display space in Frog Hollow Alley. Both businesses are occupying the space that was home to Skihaus of Vermont.
In business for just over a year, the new space gives Otter Creek Kitchenware & Electronics greater visibility and more foot traffic than their Marble Works location. According to its owners, Sammy Barnes and Greg Alexander, business has grown exponentially since they opened their doors in mid-July.
Edgewater Gallery on the Green, located at 6 Merchants Row, more than doubles the gallery’s square footage. With its increased wall space and ceiling height, the gallery can hang larger works than the Mill Street gallery can accommodate.
“The Battell Block welcomes both Otter Creek Kitchenware and Electronics and Edgewater Gallery on the Green. OCK&E quickly established its reputation in the Middlebury community for both excellent products and superior customer service,” said Bruce Hiland, owner of the Battell Block. “Edgewater’s new Gallery on the Green presents high quality, collectible fine art at the visual center of our downtown. We are confident both businesses will thrive in their very attractive Merchants Row locations and we wish them well.”
