Giant appoints man from Eldersburg as a VP

Bill Marriott of Eldersburg has been appointed regional vice president of operations for Giant Food Inc.'s northern store operations.

He will be responsible for leading company initiatives to increase sales revenue and profit growth, support cost containment and expand the company's market share in the region, including the Super G stores in Delaware and New Jersey.

Marriott joined Giant in 1974 as a cashier. After graduating from Towson University in 1976, he entered Giant's Career Development Program and advanced through the ranks, becoming a co-manager in 1982 and store manager in 1983.

He was named manager of operations support in 1995 and promoted to district manager in 1996.

Eldersburg beauty salon honored by magazine

A Final Touch beauty salon in Eldersburg was recently named one of the 200 fastest-growing salons by Salons Today magazine, a business publication for the professional beauty industry.

Roland and Patsy Cougnet established A Final Touch in 1984 as a nail and skin care salon. The business grew and within 18 months expanded to larger quarters and added hair services. Continued growth forced more moves until the salon settled at its present location in Freedom Village Shopping Center.

Patsy Cougnet continues to operate A Final Touch after her husband's death in December 1998.

Salon Today profiled 200 selected salons in its January issue. Salons were selected from applications submitted by readers who represent the 25,000 top producing salons in the country.

The magazine honored applicants who posted the highest increases in gross sales between 1998 and 1999, and who were on track to increase sales significantly in 2000.
