Business in brief

Comfort Zone Camp, a nonprofit bereavement organization for children suffering the loss of a parent or sibling, will relocate its headquarters effective July 2. The new location is 7201 Glen Forest Dr., Suite 301, in Glen Forest Office Park. Comfort Zone’s move was prompted by the current landlord’s offer of a generous incentive to terminate the lease one year early in order for the landlord to expand his medical practice. Comfort Zone found space at a competitive rate and will achieve significant savings with the upcoming move. All phone and fax numbers will remain the same.

Chaplin & Gonet has renewed its lease of 7,502 square feet at 5211 W. Broad St. Comfort Zone Camp has leased 4,714 square feet in Forest Plaza I at 7201 Glen Forest Dr. Agents with Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer handled both lease negotiations.
