  • Rising above the Harrisonburg Crossing shopping area, Harrisonburg’s newest hotel—Hyatt Place—is expected to open in September.

 

  • After serving the local community for over 60 years, Red Front Supermarket has announced they are shutting their doors permanently once their remaining inventory has been sold. They are keeping their Facebook page active to allow patrons to share photos and memories.

 

Jess’ Downtown Restaurant served their last customers on February 12th. They closed in order to spend more time with their family. Lil’ Gus’ in Grottoes continues to be open if you’re hankering for an old fashioned hot dog
