HERMON — The town of Hermon is growing. New companies are opening there while many existing businesses are choosing to expand within the community.
This week, Jim and Jennifer Violette are opening a new redemption center on Fuller Road.
“It’s very exciting. We hope it’ll be great for the town of Hermon and other surrounding towns because we’ve needed it for a long time,” said Jim Violette.
Route 2 Nutrition, which serves energy teas and drinks, opened its doors earlier this year in the town’s shopping plaza.
“We thought we knew everyone in town but we only knew a fraction of the people,” said Mary Cameron, owner of Route 2 Nutrition.
Meanwhile, Covey Physical Therapy has decided to expand its business in order to offer aquatic therapy services to its clients.
“The other thing the pool does is it offers a multi-directional resistance that you can’t simulate on land very well, so for that increase strengthening for out athletes it’s really great,” said Ann Covey, co-owner and physical therapist at Covey Physical Therapy.
Hermon Economic and Community Development Director Scott Perkins said all of this growth is great news for the community.
“It is not only good for local residents who live here but for the entire region,” said Perkins.
