A new business has graced Chautauqua Avenue in Lakewood by partnering their location with another business.

The Top Shop, which focuses on image and logo printing, has reopened at the same location as Image Embroidery. Located in the back of the store, Top Shop offers a wide variety of services such as printing on T-shirts, hats, coffee mugs and tiles.

Owners Randy Ridgeway and Bonnie Beightol said they couldn’t be happier with the arrangement.

“We share storefront space and window space,” Beightol said. “We kind of have a split shop, but it’s also together. Andrea comes up here to work, and we go down there.”

Ridgeway said the business originally opened on Fairmount Avenue two years ago in a smaller space, but have since grew. He said he is glad to be in the Chautauqua Avenue space.

“What she can’t do, we can do,” he said. “We have total capability.”

Ridgeway said the shop does graphics, vinyl, heat transfers and silk screen printing. He said the shop can also wrap cars, as well, meaning they can cover a car in a vinyl design.

“You can take a picture with your phone and send it to us, and we can put it on a tile or a coffee mug,” he said.

The new location opened on Feb. 1, but they moved in on Jan. 1. Beightol said the store is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is open on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“But, we’re not limited to that,” she said. “We live local, so we are welcome to be open by appointment.”

The shop is located at 117 Chautauqua Ave. in Lakewood. For more information, find them on Facebook or call 708-9646.
