During 2013, East Hampton Town saw several new businesses, and reincarnations of businesses. Which is your favorite? 

• Groundworks @ Hrens

Earlier this year, Kim Hren, Linda Silich, and Andy Silich, Linda's husband, moved their design landscape firm to the former Jos. A. Hren Nursery at 530 Montauk Highway that was in Hren's family for 70 years. They expanded their business to include a garden center

• Golden Eagle's New Location

Golden Eagle, an arts supply store founded in 1954, reopened in a new location in East Hampton Village. In mid-October, the store opened at 79 Newtown Lane, next to the UPS Store and across the street from the East Hampton Middle School. 

• Steph's Stuff Finds New Home For Its Toys

After 18 years on Newtown Lane in East Hampton Village, Steph's Stuff moved, but not too far away. The toy store and gift shop is now located in a bright, airy space on The Circle, next to Blue & Cream and behind Chase Bank, in May. 

• 360° East Opens At Montauk Downs

In April, 360° East at Montauk Downs, a new banquet space at the state park golf course, opened. Lessing’s Hospitality Group leased the space for 10 years and plans to host weddings, social affairs and corporate events.

• Pet Shop Purrs Its Way into Wainscott

In March, Dr. Mark Davis opened the doors to a pet supplies store, the newest addition to the South Fork Animal Hospital, filling a void left when the pet store next door closed.

 Amagansett Applied Arts Moves

The move has been “controversial," Dow said, in part because, “The Golden Eagle wasn’t aware their landlord was looking for a new renter.” In early July, the Golden Eagle, which was founded in 1954, announced its landlord wasn't renewing its lease.

• BuddhaBerry

Having spent 20 years in the medical software industry, Nancy Passaretti saw her dream realized when she opened BuddhaBerry in Montauk before the summer. She said it brings the same self-serve yogurt experience of large brands like 16 Handles, but with an added nutritious twist.

• Smokin' Wolf

Alexa Wolf said as soon as the doors opened at Smokin' Wolf's new location on Pantigo Road in mid-June, there was a steady flow of lunch customers, many who had been waiting for a taste of Smokin' Wolf's menu since last summer.

• Coco-Mat

One of the pop-ups in East Hampton Village, the high-end mattress company based in Greece brought with it a $15,000 mattress.

• Serena & Lily

A textile design company with collections of home decor, Serena & Lily opened up shop in the former Georgica Creek Antiques building on Montauk Highway in Wainscott.
