October BNews: Something old, something new

Who remembers the old Kimbrough & Quint drug store in downtown? It was part of an era when you could find anything in downtown Biloxi, literally.

A look at the bustling downtown from Back in the Day along with an update on the restoration of Howard Avenue are among the stories included in the October issue of BNews Monthly, which is now being printed at Knight-Abbey Printing and Direct Mail and will be arriving in homes and businesses across the city at the end of this week.

The 16-page newsletter also previews this year’s Cruisin’ the Coast, which begins Sunday, and profiles the city’s Parks & Recreation Department. You’ll also find stories on the new municipal budget, the waterfront summit, milestones coming up in roadwork, Cable One’s special on the Biloxi Sports Hall of Fame, and news of three new developments: Funtime USA, The Blake senior living center, and a unique Waffle House. Of course, the issue also includes the four-page Community Calendar, which spotlights Cruisin’, the Ohr’s Arts & Beer Festival and a host of Halloween events.

The lineup of advertisers: the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort; Edgewater Mall; The Peoples Bank; Treasure Bay; Brown, Mitchell & Alexander; Bancorp South and Biloxi Excel by 5.
