FOCUS ON BUSINESS: Two new businesses open

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Nail care business open now 

A&T Nails is like a bright artist’s studio with sunny yellow walls where Vietnamese owner Dawn Nguyen comes each day to pursue her American dream.

The unisex nail care and waxing business opened two months ago in Forsyth Commons, a strip mall located at the corner of Barnett Avenue and Koester Drive. Nguyen chose the business name by using the initials of Andrew, the son of her close friend and coworker Penny Trang, and Nguyen’s daughter, Trinh. She decided to locate in Forsyth because of its convenient location near restaurants and a gas station.

Racks of colorful nail polish adorn the walls and nearby work stations with sanitized countertops and packaged, sanitized tools await the expertise of the six nail technicians on staff. Across the aisle, comfortable loungers are offered for those who choose spa pedicures. Even the lucky boy or girl who tags along with Mom is offered a pint-size lounger in bright shades of orange and yellow. A menu of services is offered, with a basic spa manicure listed at $14 and a pedicure at $25 and up.

A&T Nails is open six days a week from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. (closing at 7 p.m. on Saturday) and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Free parking is available at the door. For an appointment, phone 330-8666. Walk-ins are welcome.

Book World opens in November

Book lovers who enjoy browsing as well as buying will be happy to learn that Book World, Inc. will open in November at Hickory Point Mall.

The independent chain of fullservice book stores will fill the 8,000 square feet of mall space formerly occupied by Waldenbooks. Book World has over 40 stores located throughout five states. The family-owned business has been in existence since 1976 and is based in Appleton, Wis. Books, magazines, greeting cards and gifts will be available.

“Hickory Point Mall is delighted to welcome Book World,” said Jack Fahler, the mall’s general manager. “It’s always exciting when we welcome new stores, and Book World will be a great addition to existing stores at Hickory Point Mall.”
