Elevation Books opens at new location

The owner and staff of Elevation Books and Art celebrated the opening of the store’s new location at 845 Commerce St. (state Route 2) in Wellsburg with an open house and ribbon cutting conducted by the Wellsburg Chamber of Commerce. Participating were, from left, Maryanne Capp, chamber vice president; Josh Green, store manager; Brandon Porco and his wife, Theresa, store owner; and Jacie Ridgely, chamber executive director. The store, which offers a variety of faith-based books, music and gift items, moved from 1438 Commerce St., where it opened earlier this year. The new, larger location supports plans to establish a coffee shop and meeting place there.
