Business news quite mixed this week

Want a hot tub? Need a haircut or some new clothes? How about a dance class, a quick meal, or something fixed on your car? Announcements around the state this week indicated new businesses for each of these things!

In addition, a couple of cities on the Oregon Coast boasted positive brewery news:
• The Fort George Brewery in Astoria is expanding into a larger facility and plans to nearly double their workforce and start distribution to other states. It has 23 employees. Daily Astorian, 10-16-09

Superfly Distilling Co. opened in Brookings. It makes potato vodka that is distributed to 25 liquor stores in Oregon and is served in a number of Brookings-Harbor area restaurants. Curry Coastal Pilot, 10-21-09

Unfortunately there were also closure announcements, including four businesses in the Portland area. A couple of these were:
Coldwell Banker Executive Realty in McMinnville closed. News-Register, 11-2-09
Princeton Athletic Club in Vancouver closed. The Columbian, 11-3-09

But wait... there's more! Check out this week's ATS for all the details.
