The local retail and biotechnology industries are in the news this week, with two new shops now open in the busy southwest Gainesville shopping corridor.
One large biotech company that last year joined the effort of producing treatments for COVID-19 has been acquired by another group, while a Gainesville-based company reported strong revenues during the first quarter of 2021.
