(Monday, July 29, 2013) Workmen are seen installing the signs for the new Dunn's "Resto-Bar-Deli" which will occupy the former Chez Georges Restaurant, which operated on Laurier Street for several decades.

Rockland's newest business
Wine Bottega

is now open. After a succesful run at their Orleans location (Tenth Line and Innes, near Farm Boy), owner Al Percival has decided to open another store in the bourgening Rockland area. "We see a great opportunity for us here," says Percival. "There is no other 'brew your own' operation here, and many of our Orleans customers come from this community. Now they will not have far to go and we hope to grow our client base as Rockland grows."
