A Farmers Insurance agency has moved from Chesapeake to Suffolk, officially opening a new location in the College Parkway Crossing at Harbour View shopping center.

Suffolk’s deputy mayor, Charles Brown, and Sleepy Hole borough councilman Roger Fawcett attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new location Thursday. “I have noticed that you have a very good location, if you look at the growth coming,” Brown said.

“It’s telling me that you made a very good decision to enter your business in Suffolk. You have moved from Chesapeake to Suffolk, so I want to pat you on the back twice.”
