Suffolk News-Herald, November 9, 2014 — Suffolk’s Economic Development Authority on Wednesday approved two Economic Development Investment Program grants worth $200,000 for a new retail development and a new distribution center for an ice-cream company.

The Riverfront Shoppes, a new 39,000-square-foot retail, office and medical development in the Harbour View area, will receive one of the grants for $100,000. The development has announced a signed lease with Taste Unlimited, a chain that began with one shop in Virginia Beach in 1973 and since then has grown to six locations in the Hampton Roads area. It offers a lunch menu and catering as well as specialty food retail items featuring local producers, plus wine and gifts.
