Middlebury, Vermont – May 6, 2009 – The Addison County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the opening of Bristol’s newest store, Feathering the Nest, located at 7 Main Street. Owned by Rob DiNapoli, Feathering the Nest offers products that will help beautify customers’ homes. Shoppers will find furniture, home goods, decorative items and much more.
Bristol residents may recognize DiNapoli as a former bread baker and barista at the Bristol Bakery and Almost Home Market. He is also a graduate of Champlain College with degrees in business management and business administration. DiNapoli spent time in retail management before starting his own successful landscaping business, Dreamscapes, working with clients throughout Chittenden, Addison and Grand Isle counties for 13 years.
“After more than a decade of juggling home, commuting and battling the physical and seasonal stress of landscaping, I decided to seek my own small business opportunity,” said Rob DiNapoli, proprietor of Feathering the Nest. “I was immediately drawn to the friendly locals, the easygoing culture and fresh experience of working in Bristol. This professional growth, combined with a strong network of supportive residents and area business owners are what prompted me to open my business in Bristol.”
Rob lives in Monkton with his wife and family.
The store is located at 7 Main Street in Bristol. The phone number is 802-453-5565 and the hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm with extended hours for special occasions.
