Getting a simple “hello” when you walk in the door and a “thank you” when you leave a business is nothing out of the ordinary. Getting about 20 of them is.
But not at 8 Monmouth Street, where Mark Delaney runs Exotic Birds of Red Bank with his lot of polite yet loquacious parrots.
After spending five years in Middletown operating under the Exotic Birds of Red Bank name, Delaney has just arrived in Red Bank proper. He opened up shop two weeks ago and says it was a long time coming for him.
“I always wanted to be in downtown Red Bank, then got an opportunity to be in the center of Red Bank and I jumped on it,” Delaney, 49, said.
