June 10th, 2015 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release

While I hate to harp on the weather...I will. It sucks. It's JUNE. Summer solstice is next weekend. We've only just gotten rid of the snow and now it's getting darker ? WTF?

This is global warming? When does the "warming up" part begin? That fog bank sitting behind Tancook is not helping at all.

The Chester Merchants are here for you. Rain/sleet/snow or hail, we are here.

This Week in Chester

Tomorrow night, Thursday, the grades 3-5 present "Puff" at the Chester Playhouse at 7 pm.
Set in Newfoundland the story follows the town grouch trying to hide a lie he told years ago. Determined to get the truth, Miss Wicks, the health care practitioner and her trusted friend Lady Grenfell, set off to discover what's been causing the grouch's mysterious burns. Cynthia, Marla, Bunch and many other souls have been face and eyes into this production so you know it will be top drawer.

Stop in at the Fo'c'sle for a wing or twelve before heading over. Get the sauce "hot on." Divine !

Friday has the Farmers in the Dell back at the Chester train station from 10- 2 pm. Despite the ghastly weather they have coerced/pleaded/threatened their seedlings to grow and are bringing them to Chester for you.

31 Westgate is back in the 'hood ! They have the most amazing lamps in the front window - and they could be yours. Stop in and see how your living room could morph into something ohh so much better.
