On Thursday, July 9, 2015, the Downtown Ithaca Alliance and City of Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick will hold ribbon cutting ceremonies for two new businesses on the Ithaca Commons.
At 12:30 PM, there will be a ribbon cutting for RosieApp at 158 The Commons (Second Floor). Launched in 2013, RosieApp enables customers to shop online from their favorite grocery stores for same-day delivery or in-store pickup. Today, Rosie has partner grocers in 11 states and is expanding exponentially. Locally, Rosie works with P&C Fresh and Trumansburg ShurSave. Says Nick Nickitas, co-founder and CEO, “Downtown Ithaca is the perfect location for building high-tech startups and businesses. We are excited about our new centrally-located office space that offers facilities that enable us to continue enhancing our ability to serve our customers at the highest levels.”
At 12:45 PM, there will be a ribbon cutting for Breathe at 171 The Commons (Center Ithaca Atrium). Breathe’s mission is to provide the latest in nationally-known fashions, accessories, and natural personal care products geared towards a casual lifestyle. Says owner Todd Nau, who previously worked as a lead designer for Levi Strauss and Ralph Lauren, “Our emphasis is on natural fibers and – above all else – comfort. We have a broad range of price points, from moderately-price cotton tanks and tees to luxury linens and silks. We are excited to be in the heart of Ithaca on the new Commons.”
All of Downtown Ithaca’s ribbon cuttings are free and open to the public and members of the press.
