We love to see the downtown area of Fernandina Beach being restored and maintained. Don Shaw owns a building he built further west on Centre Street that houses his own book store, Books Plus and Magna’s Salon. Recently he purchased the former Bank of America building and is now in the process of renovating it for its next life. The plan the last I talked to Don is to establish both a restaurant and retail option within the building. It appears they are going to add old brick to the exterior as well as completely reworking the interior. We wish Don much success and are pleased to see his dedication to continuing to utilize and maintain this historic area. We also look forward to the potential for both a new restaurant and more shopping!
