Welcome to the GARMA family
GARMA is excited to welcome two new members to our family of retail shops, attractions and restaurants.
Union Cigar, located at 5 Baltimore St., is under new ownership. A longtime staple of downtown Gettysburg, business partners John Weiser and Alex Babik bought the business in the fall of 2020. If you are a cigar aficionado you will be in great company. First and foremost, when you walk in the front door be prepared to relax! Union Cigar offers a very welcoming atmosphere with their leather sofas and chairs, warm fireplace, big screen TV and full service coffee bar.
John and Alex have a lot of events scheduled in the upcoming weeks to appeal to a wide audience. Cigar 101, Ladies Night, Cigars and Coffee Pairing are just a few. They also offer a Humidor Seasoning Service. A cost is associated with this, unless you purchase your humidor from Union Cigar, then it’s free. Great products and service are guaranteed.
A store named after a beloved childhood bear and the rose headband she wears. That’s Rosie’s Collection, located at 9 Steinwehr Ave. Owner, Marci Cropp has Rosie the bear displayed prominently throughout the shop. Marci wanted to present an atmosphere that transforms lives by making people feel comfortable through their outward appearance so that it might permeate inward.
Rosie’s Collection brings a glimpse of big name city designer apparel to a small town community through great fashionwear. A true “chic boutique” for ladies, Rosie’s carries high-end women’s clothing and accessories at reasonable prices. You can also find great handbags and jewelry to compliment any outfit. New to the shop is Rosie’s Cupboard. An array of branded jams and jellies, salad dressings, bread mixes and salsas will fill your cupboard and keep your meals exciting.
Visit these and other GARMA shops on February 5 for First Friday, Gettysburg Style. Stores will be offering extended hours and in-store savings and offers. You can visit our website, www.gettysburgretailmerchants.com, and click on the store icon to see what’s happening at your favorite shop or restaurant.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Plan a getaway weekend at one of our local hotels or Bed & Breakfasts. The Swope Manor on York St. and The Inn at Herr Ridge are both offering Valentine weekend packages. Check the websites or Facebook pages of our GARMA member restaurants to see what Valentine dinner specials are offered.
Shop local, eat local, stay local. Our restaurants and shops appreciate your business.
Jennie Dillon is the owner of Artworks on York St., Vice President of GARMA and Office and Events Manager at Gettysburg Rental Center.
