Cookie Place, Maltese Crossfit open new locations

The Cookie Place's new Idaho Falls location, on East 17th Street.
On the small business front this week, we have a couple of items to report.

The Cookie Place, a designer bakery that opened in Rexburg in August, has expanded to an Idaho Falls location at 2087 E. 17th Street, in the Teton Plaza shopping center next door to Little Caesar’s. The business, owned by Garth and Amy Romrell, specializes in gift boxes, does deliveries and offers catering.

Doors open at 11 a.m. For more information, check them out on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/thecookieplace.co/ or on Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/thecookieplace/.

In a completely different vein, Maltese Crossfit has moved to a new, expanded location, at 3899 S. American Way, off Sunnyside Road. Owners Sam and Becky Harmer opened Idaho Falls’ first Crossfit Gym roughly eight years ago and have now moved twice. At 10,000 square feet, the new facility is the largest Crossfit gym in southeastern Idaho.

They will be having an open house Dec. 30 from 9:30 a.m. through the afternoon. Guests are welcome to bring friends and family to check it out and even try a workout.

Crossfit emerged in the 1990s as a way to keep soldiers, firefighters and police in top shape. Harmer, an Idaho Falls firefighter who started his gym in his garage, has seen steady growth in interest. This is the third and final expansion, he said.
