GALENA, Ill. — Galena Cellars Vineyard & Winery recently relocated to 111. N. Main St., about four blocks away from its previous location.

Britt White, who operates the business with her brother, Eric White, and sister-in-law, Oniqueh Giles-White, said Galena Cellars began serving customers at the new space about two months ago.

It previously operated at 515 Main St., near the city’s floodwall. But when the restaurant One Eleven Main closed its doors, Galena Cellars jumped at the opportunity to move into the vacated space.

The space at 111 Main St. also gives the business ample room to use a full kitchen.

The location at 111 N. Main St. is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

It can be reached at 815-777-3330.

Dynamic Tube recently launched an industrial clean line and inspection area within its facility at 1286 E. Maple St., according to Business Development Director Brian Deines.

Dynamic Tube manufactures and fabricates high-performance tubing and pipe parts used in engine, fluid and hydraulic systems by original equipment manufacturers in the agriculture, construction, mining, railroad and defense industries.

Producing clean parts for these clients is essential: Deines explained that even miniscule particles of dirt and grime have the potential to damage the internal workings of an engine or piece of machinery.

Deines said the company invested about $250,000 in the project.
