Geneva: Perlman store relocates to downtown

Perlman Fine Jewelry is relocating its Geneva store from Geneva Commons to State and 3rd streets downtown. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was scheduled for noon today at the new location, and an open house with refreshments and special grand opening sales also will be held.

Perlman has been a family-owned business in the area for more than 52 years. With its beginning in downtown Elgin in 1960, the Perlmans grew the business to open stores in the St. Charles Mall, Spring Hill Mall in West Dundee, and Geneva Commons. “It was after many months of serious consideration and deliberation that I decided to relocate our business to the corner of State and 3rd Street in the historic district of downtown Geneva,” said owner Corey Perlman. “The intersection of State and 3rd Street is the most prominent corner in downtown Geneva and has high visibility for strolling shoppers and vehicles traveling through town. Our lease at Geneva Commons was expiring at the same time that our new corner space became available. I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to relocate our store to the best corner in town. Although we had been in shopping malls for nearly 30 years with primarily national brand tenants, I think the appeal of moving to downtown Geneva with primarily independent specialty shops is going to be a better business environment for the future growth of our business.”

Elgin: Springhill Xtreme open house scheduled

Springhill Xtreme will hold a free open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, with attendees having a chance to meet instructors for Zumba, yoga, Pilates, TurboKick and Beach Body. The 25,000-square-foot fitness facility at 2750 Pinnacle Drive in Elgin recently added a 1,000-square-foot studio for classes. Call 847-426-9467 for more information.

St. Charles: Baker Church to hold jazz service

Baker Memorial United Methodist Church will hold another of its special, musically themed worship services at 9 and 10:30 a.m. Sunday. All music will be performed in a jazz style. “We are bringing the jazz idiom into the worship experience,” Jeffrey Hunt, director of music ministry at Baker. The services will feature “Holy, Holy, Holy” in a jazz style, a Swingle Singers’ arrangement of J.S. Bach’s “Fugue in D Major,” some Duke Ellington, and composer Larry Nickel’s “Beauty All Around Us.” Baker Memorial Church is at East Main Street and Fourth Avenue in downtown St. Charles.

Kane County: Ask Lawyer Days scheduled for 2013

The Kane County Bar Association will conduct monthly “Ask A Lawyer Days” during 2013. On the second Saturday of each month, people can call 630-762-1900 between 9 a.m. and noon for a free consultation with a volunteer attorney. This public information service provides an opportunity to ask questions and find direction for any legal matter. Last month, dozens of callers were helped with legal problems regarding real estate, landlord/tenant, criminal, estates and wills, divorce, child custody, collections, bankruptcy and traffic. There is a high call volume, so callers should keep trying if the phone lines are busy.
