3 Businesses Closing, 1 Changing Ownership
Island Jack changes hands. Rampant Lion & cigar shop closing. Gus's Pizza closed.
Three businesses in downtown Havre de Grace are undergoing significant changes.
Island Jack was recently sold and is temporarily closed. The shop was set to have a 30 percent off sale this weekend, but closed early due to the sale.
An email to customers this week declared that the business would be under new ownership, with the message: "Thank you for the many years of great memories!!!"
Original store owner Kelly Falkenstine was unavailable for comment this week.
Rampant Lion Artisan Gallery will close Saturday, at which point in time proprietor Scott Wallace will begin transforming it into a highly-interactive toy store.
Wallace described the new venture as part toy store, part hobby and project shop.
“It’s going to be more than a toy store,” he said. “It’s kind of hard to explain. It’s not going to be just a toy store.”
The business will involve Jody Carnaggio, a licensed childcare provider.
Wallace said "Wonder Toys" is slated to open in time for the first Friday in May at the courtyard-style, water-view property on St. John Street.
