NEWS RELEASE: Downtown Pocomoke Revitalization - Grand Opening, Saturday 4/21

A 2nd Time Around Celebrates its Grand Opening

Pocomoke City – 18 April 2012 – Pocomoke City Mayor Bruce Morrison proudly announces the grand opening of “A 2nd Time Around,” a new retail establishment featuring repurposed items, collectibles, thrift, records, and other vintage jewels.  This shop offers a little bit of everything for everyone.

Both natives of the area, owners Terri Darby and Dana Blanchard have spent years scouring the Eastern Shore and collecting their treasures.  Now they are opening their doors to share them with the community.  A 2nd Time around will buy, sell and trade most vintage items.

Terri and Dana are a community-oriented couple and they are receiving a warm welcome from their downtown neighbors.  Some recognize Terri from her work leading coordination of the Annual Sarah Foxwell Memorial Scholarship Ride that benefits Salisbury University’s social work program.  Many auction-goers and pickers are friendly with Dana.  Others are simply getting to know the couple through friendly daily interactions at the newly opened store.  All seem impressed with the commitment they bring to downtown development, with a renewed emphasis on both cost-effective and “green” living. 

This Saturday’s grand opening is a community event.  Local business owners and public officials will be on hand and guests will be able to view a display of high school repurposing projects donated by Pocomoke High School.  It will all take place at A 2nd Time Around, at 125 Market Street (on the corner of Market & Second Streets, downtown), beginning at 2:00pm and ending at 4:00pm.  The event will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2:15pm, and a door prize drawing at 3:45pm.  Refreshments will be served. 

The store’s opening marks a milestone in the city’s efforts to attract new businesses to Pocomoke’s downtown as it repositions itself as a tourist destination.  Members of the community who are interested in learning more about A 2nd Time Around are encouraged to stop by on Saturday.  Those interested in the city’s downtown efforts in general, should contact Angela Manos, at 410-603-1178, or
