Livingston Expands its Business District with Multiple Celebratory Ribbon Cuttings


LIVINGSTON, NJ — In a series of congratulatory ribbon cuttings on Feb. 5, Livingston Mayor Alfred M. Anthony, members of the Livingston Township Council, and other local dignitaries celebrated the openings of two new businesses and the expansion of a third.

This month’s celebratory ribbon cuttings kicked off at Eastman Companies, a full-service real estate development, construction and management company in Livingston Township. The first ribbon cutting of the day celebrated the grand opening of Hills Fit Studio, a new indoor cycling studio located at Eisenhower Corporate Campus.

The industrial-inspired indoor cycling studio, owned and managed by Hillary Schumer, provides the building’s employees—as well as local residents—with a low-impact workout option for achieving their health and fitness goals.

The addition of Hills Fit Studio—in combination with Eisenhower Corporate Campus’ professionally supervised, tenant-only fitness center and personal training at It’s Beyond Fitness—is intended to raise the bar for corporate health and fitness offerings.

The group then headed to Boon Thai Kitchen, located at 21 E. Northfield Ave., to enjoy a celebratory lunch and welcome the one-month-old restaurant as an official business of Livingston Township. Boon Thai’s owner, Sheri, said the restaurant has received an extensive welcome from the township thus far and is excited to bring Thai food to the Livingston community.

“It’s been a blessing,” said Sheri about the enthusiastic feedback the restaurant has received over the last month. “Everybody loves Thai food and they get so excited that it’s coming to town.”

So far, the Thai food has been known for its unique menu and extensive take-out options. Sheri, whose family owns multiple Thai restaurants in Montclair, said she has been looking forward to opening a Thai-food eatery in the Livingston area before she reaches retirement.

“Thai food is in our blood,” she said. “We love cooking, we love to please people and we love to share our grandma’s recipe.”

Founded more than a decade ago to help local parents navigate the camp outfitting process without overspending, CampStuff4Less is expanding its Livingston-based showroom/warehouse on March 1 and now includes university-and professional-sports merchandise. Offering a full selection of camp essentials from bedding, flashlights, water bottles and outerwear as well as extras like stationery, autograph pillows, bunk gifts and more, the CampStuff4Less expansion will contribute more the camp experience than ever before.

According to owner Lori Stern, CampStuff4Less is a warehouse that offers a variety of college-and camp-specific merchandise and that many Livingston residents don’t realize exists. The showroom, open weekdays at 87 Dorsa Ave. in Livingston, celebrated its expansion with the mayor, deputy mayor and a handful of town council and Chamber of Commerce members Friday.
