Out with the old and in with the new has been the phrase that Hudson Valley residents have used lately. We have watched some of our favorite mom and pop shops, restaurants, and local businesses close down. Some of them have retired while others are already on a new journey elsewhere.

However, it's exciting to see local businesses grow in the Hudson Valley. From cafes to boutiques and more, our favorite small towns are blossoming.

You may know the exact feeling when you hear that your local, go-to business is closing its doors. On the other hand, it's refreshing to learn that they will be opening in a new location.
