Happy 30th anniversary to Norma’s Country Dreams, located at 4705 Center Street. Deer Park resident Norma Moses (with the help of her husband Arnold) started the business on a small-scale in 1987 with 1,250 square feet in a modest retail space on Center Street. Business flourished and in 2001, the current location was built. Norma’s was even named a “Top 10 Favorite Houston-Area Small Business” by KTRK Channel 13 viewers, who stated that Norma’s has something for everyone – furniture, mirrors, home décor, chandeliers, fragrant candles, the latest fashions for all ages, and funky, fabulous jewelry. Congratulations to the Moses family and their employees on 30 successful years. You may reach the store at 281-930-9589.

A new restaurant, Ocean Seafood & Wings, will soon occupy 3717 Center Street (in the former location of Mooyah Burger).
