A few new businesses opened in the Huntsville area this past week, with some eateries opening and breaking ground around town, and a couple of massage therapy businesses.

However, we had some less-than-pleasing news to report this week as well, with the announcement of two local breweries closing at the end of the month.

Say “hello” to these new businesses opening in the area:

Where are these new businesses?

1. Whataburger

The burger chain Whataburger broke ground on their new location near MidCity, which is expected to open by the end of the year. This is the third Huntsville location for the chain.

2. Hand + Stone Massage/Facial Spa

We do not have an exact opening date for Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Madison, but we do know that they are coming soon and giving away a chance to win free massages or facials at their grand opening event. So follow them on Facebook to find out more info!

Along with the new businesses, we also learned that two local breweries are closing. (Salty Nut via Facebook)

As we reported earlier today, two local craft breweries, Salty Nut Brewery and Fracral Brewing Project, are closing at the end of July. We are sad to see these popular spots go.
