MILLINGTON — November will see three new businesses opening in Millington – a good month for any town.
First to open the doors to customers, Saturday, Nov. 9, was Old News, Kevin Hemstock’s memorabilia and collectibles shop. The store at 396 Cypress St. offers rare books, coins, photo art, ephemera and vintage bottles. Hemstock also sells some office supplies, and performs genealogical and historical research, photo restoration and scans, copies and faxes.
Hemstock, a Millington councilman and former editor of the Kent County News, cut the ribbon at 10 a.m. Saturday, with Mayor C.J. Morales and Galena Councilman and Sassafras River Business Council President John Carroll among the dignitaries in attendance.

She has extensive experience, including work on sails and boat upholstery at the Sail Yard in Galena. Call 410-371-8537 for more information.
Morales and his wife Joyce are the third new business in Millington. Their General Store, at 406 Back St., will offer a wide variety of used furniture and carpets. The store, on the former site of Cajun Mo’s tavern, will be opening in about two weeks, Morales said.
