First-time business owner Deb Bell’s chose Potomac Avenue for her new store, Deb’s Gourmet Shop.
A new shop on Potomac Avenue is bringing gourmet tastes to Dormont shoppers. Deb’s Gourmet Shop opened in April, and owner Deb Bell said her goal is to bring shoppers those things people see in magazines, but have a hard time finding in stores. “Usually you can only get these kind of things in the summertime and you have to go to a craft show or order it,” she said. “It’s things you can’t normally go into the store and buy.” Bell, a first-time business owner who is originally from Whitehall and now lives in West Mifflin, said her husband worked in the restaurant business for several years and will help run the store.

Lyndsay Lewis, a Keystone Oaks graduate and Dormont native, has opened Salon Atmosphere in the building that used to house Charm Beauty Shoppe.
There are new faces behind the windows of the former Charm Beauty Shoppe on West Liberty Avenue, but the salon still has hometown roots.

We're trying to track down some more info about this new store, who owns it, and when it will open.
From the looks of it, a new frozen yogurt shop is opening on Potomac Avenue in Dormont, next to Thai Spoon. Unfortunately, that's about all we know at this time. Paper covers the windows, leaving us to wonder what sweet treats will be revealed. As of Feb. 20, a sign in the front indicated the shop will open soon, but doesn't give a name or a date.
