The association's president Lynn Richardson shares a few basic principles to follow when building your brand online.
Perry Hall/ White Marsh Business Association president Lynn Richardson said she was a little embarrassed when her business website didn't register on the first two pages of Google search results. "Considering this is how I make a living," Richardson said to association members Tuesday morning. Richardson made the unfortunate discovery while attending the Google-sponsored Local U: Baltimore conference at the Hilton Garden Inn in White Marsh. "What happens to us small businesses is ... how your business is listed affects how it turns up online," Richardson said. "Your information might not be listed like you think."

The return of a large grocery store could bring more customers to surrounding businesses.

Signs advertise the planned Phở 7 Rich at the Joppa Corners shopping center.
As indicated by several newly hung signs along Joppa Road, Perry Hall's only Vietnamese restaurant is "Coming Soon." A building permit on the window of Phở 7 Rich at 4136A on Joppa Road shows, "Change of occupancy from pizza carry-out into sit-down restaurant." The permit was issued on April 11, 2012.

Heart pendants and charms are popular buys this season.
Who's buying jewelry for Valentine's Day? According to two Perry Hall jewelers, the answer is men, and they tend to be last-minute shoppers. "Every season, every holiday, we have about five people come here and say, 'Help me,'" said Village Gem owner Tommy Thobe. The rush for jewelry occurs just days before the holiday, attracting shoppers across the budget spectrum. "The price range is really up to the individual. You have guys who will only spend $50 and some who will spend $5,000," said Vinny Fino, co-owner of Fino Jewelers on Belair Road. Deciding what to purchase, however, is often more of a concern than price. "Sometimes they look a little lost, so we always try to help them out," Fino said. "A lot of guys think that because it's …
