Coming soon: McGillicuddy's Soaps & Aurelio Hair Studio. What happened to Peppers Deli?

Hello again,

The businesses are blowing up this summer! Everywhere you look it seems a new shop or service is sprouting up across Saratoga Springs. Here's a sneak peak into two new businesses - Aurelio Hair Studio and McGillicuddy's Soaps. I plan on speaking with someone from both businesses tomorrow, but in the meantime if anyone has any questions about the new hair salon or soap shop that they would like answered before I speak with the owners please feel free to post comments and I will do my best to address everyone.


Aurelio Hair Studio -
Former celebrity hair stylist Aurelio Bidinost recently left his glamorous post at Universal Studios in the Hollywood to bring his cutting edge looks to Saratoga Springs. Aurelio will open his appointment-only salon this month at Suite 3 at 77 Van Dam in Saratoga Springs. Famous for his original, edgy and multi-dimensional hair styles, colorings and cuts, Aurelio will add a fresh face to the local hair salon competition. 

McGillicuddy's Soaps - 
This is one little business I personally can't wait to learn more about. After watching weeks of renovations on the ground floor of Saratoga Marketplace at 454 Broadway, today I finally passed by a seemingly finished McGillicuddy's Soap shop. Despite the minor detail that the shop was closed, the aroma of fresh sudsy goodness and the shop's old-school, vintage charm was undeniably captivating. I suspect there is a good story rooted in Saratoga's history behind McGillicuddy's Soaps and I aim to find out and report back as soon as possible! Stay tuned.

Peppers Deli - 
 Is closed for good? The dark windows and real estate agent sign out front hint that this Lake Avenue deli has shut its doors once and for all. Does anyone have any more information? Perhaps a new deli or similar foodie snack shop will breathe new life into this forgotten building. What would you like to see move into the location at 173 Lake Avenue?

Details to come. Cheers,
