Business Briefcase



Thomson’s Garden Shop in Salem has reopened after having its space remodeled and is now located to the left of the existing building. The shop will remain open through Dec. 24 before closing for the winter season, and then it will reopen for the spring season on April 1, 2014.


Kevin O’Grady School staff, students, parents and donors held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the Beverly school’s new 16,000 square-foot outdoor exercise space, which includes a large playing field, a half basketball court and walking, riding, running track that meets the requirements of Americans with Disabilities Act for wheelchair use. The event marked the completion of phase one of a $200,000 Outdoor eX campaign to create a safe space for students with severe special needs to exercise and enjoy the outdoors. Phase two of the project begins in the summer of 2014 when the Outdoor eX Committee will work with a consultant to design a sensory garden and decide where special play and leisure equipment will be placed. The Kevin O’Grady School is a program of the Northshore Education Consortium and serves 120 students with significant developmental delays. Students are referred by school districts from all over the North Shore.


The sales associates of the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Beverly donated $795 to the North Shore Community Development Coalition to support the organization’s ongoing mission to provide quality affordable housing, economic empowerment and community development on the North Shore. The real estate firm’s sales associates and employees raise funds for local housing-related causes by donating a portion of their sales commissions and paychecks to Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares, the company’s charitable foundation.
