Best Nest Interiors Relocating to Virginia Beach
CAPE CHARLES WAVE
January 8, 2013
Another lower Mason Avenue business is leaving town.
Best Nest Interiors, located at 115 Mason Avenue, has announced that it will close its Cape Charles store after Monday, January 14.
The announcement came in an email from Town Council member Joan Natali to subscribers of “Cape Charles Happenings.”
According to the announcement, Best Nest is relocating to the North Beach Shoppes on Shore Drive in Virginia Beach across the street from Kroger, one block from the bridge tunnel.
“We hope to continue to be a part of Cape Charles. Our home is here and we will maintain a warehouse here for our Cape Charles customers,” owners John Selway and Nikki Schroeder wrote. “We will be keeping in touch with all of you as we make our exciting move to the ‘big city.’ We value all of the support we have received on the Eastern Shore for the last six years.”
The owners anticipate opening the Virginia Beach store January 18.
Best Nest also once operated a store on Highway 13 in Cheriton but closed it several years ago.
Best Nest has furnished a number of prominent homes on the Eastern Shore, including the new Bay Creek house next to the lighthouse which recently sold for $1.2 million completely furnished.
The west end of Mason Avenue has seen several commercial departures recently, with the biggest hit being the closing of Bank of America at 201 Mason. The bank building subsequently was purchased by the Town of Cape Charles for use as a library.
Harbor Grille at 241 Mason Avenue closed in 2011, but Brown Dog Ice Cream opened at the same location this past July. However, Brown Dog is closed for the winter.
Before Brown Dog opened, a frozen yoghurt shop was planned for the 200 block of Mason, but the owners got no further than erecting a sign before work stopped.
