We just received this announcement from the Country Walk Shops in Sister Bay.




April 23, 2009

For the upcoming 2009 season, we are proud to announce the addition of 4 new merchants to THE COUNTRY WALK SHOPS in Sister Bay.

Whether you enjoy food, fragrances or hobbies, Country Walk has something fresh and interesting to offer our patrons. Three new retailers will open their doors in our attractive Garden Level, and one will welcome visitors on our Upper Level across from Piggly Wiggly. The new merchants joining us this year include:

Affordable Satellite TV, Internet & Security provides local service and support for the residents and businesses of Door County.

Cheesecake, Etc. - Indulge yourself with cheesecakes and other delectables made from scratch with all natural ingredients.

Chou Chou is a fragrance blending bar and boutique, bringing this unique retail concept to Door County residents and visitors.

Harbor Tea and Spice Company - Relocating from Egg Harbor. Enjoy a freshly brewed hot or iced tea while you shop over 200 varieties of fine teas, herbs, spices and extracts.

“We are excited about the momentum that’s building here at Country Walk Shops,” said Kathy Toerpe of Door County Scrapbooking, a member of the Country Walk Board of Directors. “In the past five years, eight merchants have opened new locations here, bringing a great level of energy and innovation.”

Doug Schwartz, co-owner with his wife and daughter of The Cook Book and Board President, agreed. “Since we moved here from our previous location three years ago, we have seen our business grow. Even in a difficult economy, people want to be active doing the things they enjoy, whether it’s cooking, reading books, or quilting.”

The new retailers are looking forward to success in their new ventures. “We are excited to join the growing Country Walk Shops in the Sister Bay community,” said Scott & Belkis Dell, owners of Cheescake, Etc. “In our efforts to open a new business, all have been very welcoming. As we look to establish another successful business, we anticipate becoming more involved in helping increase the attractiveness of Door County as a vacation destination.” The Dells join more than 25 other businesses in Country Walk, some of whom have operated continuously here for more than 2 decades.

Country Walk Shops is home to over 30 businesses, including food and dining; fashion, beauty and hair care; hobbies and specialty gifts; and professional services. Strategically located next to Piggly Wiggly at the intersection of Highways 42 and 57 in Sister Bay, Country Walk boasts ample parking and an attractive garden setting, within walking distance of Pamida and downtown Sister Bay.
