Aug. 15 a busy day for Whatcom business openings

We've had a steady stream of local business openings this summer, but Thursday, Aug. 15 seems to be an especially busy day.

WinCo and Semiahmoo Resort are planning to open that day, along with two health-related facilities:

-- PRIME Massage and Sports Medicine and Performance Health NorthWest will have a grand opening/open house at 1433 N. State St. in Bellingham. It's a clinic with an emphasis on a variety of disciplines, including chiropractic, massage therapy and athletic training. The clinics are operated by Kerry Gustafson and Erik DeRoche.

The open house will be from 6-9 p.m.

"What sets us apart from other sports-minded clinics is the diverse and competitive background Erik and I bring together to offer the active Bellingham community," said Gustafson in a news release.

-- Bellingham Ob/Gyn is moving into its new facility at 3200 Squalicum Parkway. The facility should be ready on Thursday afternoon with a grand opening planned for later in the year. The new facility has 7,200 square feet of space and is near its current facility (2980 Squalicum Parkway).
