Cycle and skate shop expands

Blood Sweat Gears Cycle & Skate in Denver recently completed an expansion of its facility, located on Cross Center Road, next to Harris Teeter.

Owner Keith Isenberg said 1,000 square feet of retail space was added after a wall was taken out, bringing the total store space to 3,500 square feet.

This has allowed the store to bring in more of its products at a time, with additional areas for displaying them, Isenberg said.


Etiquette studio opens

Oh Fork Etiquette Studio, located at 526A E. Main St. in Lincolnton, will be opening for business on Monday.

Owner Lori Myers said the studio will offer various programs and classes for children, teens and adults on etiquette, personal development, modeling, pageantry and acting. She also plans to provide business-protocol classes for teens and college students.

She noted her main focus will be a nonconventional approach to teaching etiquette, including character-based training. Those interested may sign up for classes or receive individual instruction, with various levels of training available.

Describing herself as a former “spokesmodel,” Myers said she wanted to take the knowledge she has gained and pay it forward. She will provide most of the instruction, but she plans to bring other instructors in for different aspects of the program. Her facility includes a tea room, a multipurpose room and a catwalk.

The hours of operation are 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.

Backyard Buddies owner Kathy Woodward said she and From the Ground Up owner Jannette Huggins decided to join forces to combine both product lines, including bird seed and feeders along with a garden gift store, with flowers and other plants to attract birds and butterflies to customers’ yards.
