This Cold Winter Does Have Some Upsides!

This cold winter does have some upsides.  One is that the outdoor, public (and FREE) ice rink at Fairport Village Junction is open daily from 10am-10pm for your skating pleasure.  The rink is maintained by Perinton Recreation and Parks and is intended for open skating rather than hockey.  Would like to skate but don’t have a pair?  RV&E Bike and Skate (40 N. Main St.) is a block from the rink and will rent you skates.   Skating is a great family activity and this winter weather is perfect for skating!

Sew Creative

Sew Creative, once located in the historical Depot building on N. Main St. in Fairport, is all settled in to its new location, 650 Whitney Rd., Fairport, in the Whitney Town Center.  In business since 1975, Sew Creative is the place to go to find fabrics, notions, patterns as well as sewing machines and training.  In their new location look for larger classroom space (classes ranging from sewing and serging to embroidery and quilting) and abundant natural light from the large windows in the front of the store.   Sew Creative, “your home for creative sewing”.

The Trolley Depot

Welcome to The Trolley Depot, Fairport’s newest gift shop!  Located at 23 N. Main St., in the historical Depot building next to Rikki’s, this high-end gift shop features handmade products from more than 40 local artists.  You will find jewelry, fine art, pottery, stained glass, vintage drawings, electric handmade guitars and much more.  The Trolley Depot is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10-5pm; 10-7pm on Thursdays.  Parking on Main St. or in the large lot behind the store.

StoneBrook Townhomes & Cottages is Nearly Completed

Our remarkable little community of rental homes in Fairport is almost to the finish line!  Our last unit of townhomes is scheduled to be completed in early 2018.  Homes in the Community have 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, modern full kitchens, abundant natural light, and many features typically found in custom-built homes.  StoneBrook is so unique because of its hillside location, the space between homes, expansive wooded and grassy areas, a stream and several ponds, and views that are awe-inspiring.   The Crescent Trail trailhead is located right on the property; the Trolley Trail is a 5 minute walk or less.  And we are a 10 minute drive to the 490 expressway.  If renting a home is high on your to-do list, drive to Fairport and let us show you why this particular community is a wonderful place to live! 

New Grocery Store Option

Fairport residents are fortunate to have several excellent grocery stores and markets within close proximity: Wegmans, Tops, Fairport Farmers Market, and Red Bird Market, to name a few.   Recently, ALDI opened a store in Fairport at 6687 Pittsford Palmyra Rd.  If you have never been to an ALDI store, get ready for a new adventure.  The company website states clearly that ALDI has their own unique style.  First, carts cost 25 cents to “rent”.  Return your cart and get your quarter back!  You will never see carts strewn about an ALDI parking lot!  Bring your own grocery bags or buy reusable ones at the checkout; no plastic bags are used to pack your groceries here.  Although you will not find name-brands at ALDI, you will find ALDI brands, which are made of the same or even higher quality than national brands.  Lastly, the chain makes no claims that they stock everything you need on your grocery list.  Just the opposite.  ALDI stores have a smaller inventory than most of their competitors, focusing on “must-haves” in their smaller stores.  With a smaller footprint, lower rent and electricity costs allows them to pass the savings on to you, and, getting in and out of the store is typically a breeze.  It’s a remarkably low-stress option.
