Corey Avenue merchants have a jolly idea for shoppers


Corey merchants have a jolly idea for shoppers

Join the merchants on Corey Avenue for a week of Christmas in July. The event kicks off from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and runs through July 16. It will include sales, discounts, BOGOs and more. This year, the merchants have teamed up with the Christmas Toy Shop Project as it celebrates its 90th year of serving needy children in Pinellas County. The shop is open year-round, collecting and refurbishing toys for distribution during Christmas. Participating merchants will have a drop box for collecting toys for the fundraiser. New and gently used toys will be accepted. Corey Avenue is off of Gulf Boulevard. Call (727) 498-8778 or (727) 898-3962.


Health clinic party precedes its opening

Doctors Express officially opens its doors July 25, but the new urgent care center at 1530 Fourth St. N will have its grand opening community celebration from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The family-friendly event will feature music, interactive performances, face painting and free food and beverages.


Upham house gains tidy new tenant

Maids, Maintenance & More has moved to one of the oldest buildings on the beaches. It's now at 7001 Gulf Blvd. in the historic Upham family house. The cleaning and home maintenance company completes "honey-do" maintenance lists, closes up homes for the season and can monitor homes while owners are away. Its "new" digs were built in 1924.
