Elected officials, representatives from the Catonsville Chamber of Commerce and other invited guests were on hand at NDX, at 5621 Old Frederick Rd., on Tuesday to cut a ceremonial ribbon on a new 18,280 square foot records management and documents storage center.

Plenty of room for more music in Catonsville
Catonsville Patch: How long have you been in business in Catonsville? Nick Anthony: I opened Anthony Instrument Repair a little bit over two years ago. We moved up from Pasadena where I was working out of my house for a little over a year before I found this place. Patch: Why did you choose Catonsville? Anthony: I love being in Catonsville. While I was working for a decade at Appalachian Bluegrass and my wife was going to UMBC, we lived in an apartment over where the skate shop used to be. That was the carriage house where the Catons lived while they were waiting for their mansion to be built. There’s so much going on here with the music business. It’s not bad for business when you own a music related shop and there are five other …

The Hub and Cville Bikes will open in October on Frederick Road.
Catonsville resident Scott Westcoat has been looking for property in Catonsville to open a bike shop for more than a year. But every opportunity fell through, until he was able to secure two storefronts side-by-side on Frederick Road on the Strawberry Fields property. Westcoat, along with two other businesser partners, will open two bike shops at 827 Frederick Road and 821 Frederick Road. The shops were formerly occupied by the Catonsville Groomery, which moved to Edmondson Avenue and A.W.O.L. Skate Shop, which moved across the street. One shop will be Cville Bikes, which will cater to families, and another shop will be the Hub, which will cater to more serious cyclists. Westcoat's partners are his brother Warren and veteran bike shop …

Peirson has been In the business since she was 14 years old.
Catonsville Patch: How long have you been in business in Catonsville? Bridget Peirson: I have a long history in the travel business, but I opened this business in Catonsville in 1975. We started Peirson Travel on Edmondson Avenue, then moved over to Frederick Road in ‘84 or ‘85. We just moved to this new location six months ago. Patch: Tell us about your history in the business. Peirson: I always knew this was the business for me. I was born in Ireland, but I went to school in London. When I was fourteen, I begged my neighborhood travel agent for a job. I went to school and I worked there during the day, and I chamber-maided at the Cumberland Hotel in Marble Arch at night. That’s how I got my start! Patch: Why did you choose …

The former owners of Zi Pani by the Wilkens Avenue Giant have found a new location.
Catonsville residents may have missed the bagels, coffee and sandwiches at Zi Pani Café in the Wilkens Beltway Plaza since it left the shopping center roughly three years ago. For 14 years, co-owners Bill Pringle and Crystal Jones operated a bagel shop that was under various names, including Zi Pani Café. When they left that location, the shop ended up on East Drive in Arbutus. But Pringle and Jones said they wanted a location with better parking and that was closer to Catonsville. A few months ago, they found a new spot off of Frederick Road at the intersection of Paradise Avenue in the same shopping center with Thai Heaven. The owners moved in and opened roughly two weeks ago, this time with the name Z'Pan Café. "It's great because it's …

Sean Dunworth said that nothing will change with the restaurant.
(UPDATED TUESDAY) Sean Dunworth, the co-owner of Catonsville Gourmet and founder of Regions, has sold Catonsville Gourmet. Dunworth said he couldn't speak more about the sale or the details because the deal was still being finalized. The popular Frederick Road seafood restaurant was sold to restaurant owner Craig Rinkerman, who Dunworth said does not own any restaurants in the area.

The day-to-day operations of the restaurants will not change, Dunworth said, including anything with the staff. It is expected that Chef Rob Rehmert will stay on. Catonsville Gourmet …
