Local Businessman Acquires Community Resource Website

Bellingham, WA, January 29, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Bellingham businessman, Ben Kinney, has purchased local community-based website, Fairhaven.com

Fairhaven.com is a website devoted to providing information about the historic district of Fairhaven located in Bellingham. Things to do, neighborhood information, upcoming events, restaurant guides, and places to shop are a few features of the website.

Fairhaven.com has been owned and managed for 13 years by local resident John Servais. “I transferred ownership of Fairhaven.com to Ben for a variety of reasons,” says Servais. “I wanted someone that had a deep understanding and appreciation of this historic district. I also wanted someone motivated to continue serving the needs of the Fairhaven community by taking this website to the next level.”

Chuck Robinson, President and CEO of Village Books and Paper Dreams in Fairhaven says “I was really excited when I heard that Ben was acquiring Fairhaven.com from John, as I've known for some time that John was looking to retire. Since the site was launched it has been a central hub for information about all things Fairhaven -- dining, shopping, events, and a place for potential new residents to research the area. I'm so pleased that the legacy John has created will live on, and that Ben will bring his seemingly boundless energy and ideas to Fairhaven.com.”

John is a long-time ambassador to Fairhaven and plans to remain active in the community by managing his other community-minded website, nwcitizen.com.

Ben, with the help of website development and management company, Big Fresh, will actively maintain the website. Some improvements are planned including social integration and enhancements to the business listings valued by customers and visitors.
