Some random updates from the ever-changing mix of stores and restaurants in downtown Red Bank that we call the redbankgreen Retail Churn…
• From Ice to spice: the Spice & Tea Exchange, a chain of independently owned and operated merchants of gourmet spices, herbs, salts, teas and more, has filed papers with the borough to open at 12 Monmouth Street. The space was last, and briefly, occupied by Ice Jewelry, and before that, Soapmarket.
Landlord Bill Meyer tells Retail Churn that the business is jamming for a pre-Christmas opening. Ambitious.
• Jersey Mike’s subs, an ever-expanding franchise operation with New Jersey roots, plans to open a store in the City Centre strip mall at Maple Avenue and Water Street.
