Musictoday bought by Delivery Agent

by Jim on August 6, 2014

The Daily Progress reports:

Fitzsimmons said his company — with 375 employees in its San Francisco headquarters and offices in Denver, New York and London — will keep Musictoday’s nearly 150 employees and its 200,000-square-foot office-and-warehouse space in Crozet, with plans to expand.

“We’re committed to the Virginia space and to the employees,” he said. “We have a great team there — tenured and loyal. We’re committed to expand the operation there.”

The company already has contracted for space for about 50 more employees in another facility in Charlottesville, he said.

Good news that they’re not moving from Crozet (which would be a tremendous loss) but I wonder why they’re adding to another facility rather than Crozet?

No Crozet Hotel

by Jim on August 5, 2014


Owner David Hilliard said he had secured full funding for the equity but could not reach terms with the bank for the planned four-story, 52-room Rutherfoord Hotel, which was to have included a bar, restaurant and rooftop event space. Crozet has no hotels.


Remember the sort-of-discussion about a brewery that had expressed interest in Crozet?

They might end up in Richmond.

Richmond is one of the final cities under consideration by California-based Stone Brewing Co. for its first East Coast operation, a highly coveted project that has drawn interest from cities across several states.

The company anticipates spending at least $20 million for the facility’s initial phase, and expects to create hundreds of jobs, according to the company.

Food for thought.
