Midtown Jewelers and Deli Italiano are two of the three newest businesses in downtown Herndon's historic district. Midtown Jewelers, a family-owned boutique with roots in the area since 1982, is owned by Bobby and Julie Singh, 700 Elden Street.
Deli Italiano, 700 Lynn Street, is owned by Yasser Basilios.
On Thursday, Dec. 8, Midtown Jewelers and Deli Italiano held their opening ribbon cutting ceremonies. “Herndon is a place of great business opportunity. We are here to serve the local community and be part of it, growing and expanding,” said Julie Singh.
The third business to open is Fire & Eve Spa, located on the third floor of 700 Elden Street, Suite C. The business trio fills a void in the town's specialty services market.
”When I started meeting with every neighbor who came in, it was a really, really good fit to be in Herndon,” Basilios said. “I thank God I am here.”
