Business news from the town

6 Jul

I heard some business news from Supervisor Ron Nesbitt a few weeks ago, confirmed recently by a story in this week’s Webster Post.

Three new businesses are coming to town, two of them helping to fill in that big open space next to Kohl’s at Town Center Plaza. The first is a store called HomeGoods, which I have never heard of before.  A quick Internet search, however, tells me that there’s already one of these stores in Victor. They describe themselves on their website thusly:

“HomeGoods is where savvy shoppers of every style discover distinctive home fashions at up to 60% off department and specialty store prices every day.”

I don’t consider myself a savvy shopper (unless “frugal” and “cheap” are synonyms for “savvy”) so I probably won’t be shopping there very much.

Sharing that empty space will be an LA Fitness.  Even after that and HomeGoods come in, there will still be some empty space for yet another store to join them.

The third new business heading our way is a Dairy Queen (YAY!) which will set up shop on Hard Road across from VanIngen Drive (just north of the entrance to Webster Square/Kmart Plaza). Developers hope that this will be up and running by the end of the year (when everyone will want ice cream). LA Fitness and HomeGoods still have some hoops to jump through, so there’s no word yet on when construction will begin for them.

And while we’re on the topic of new local businesses, construction on the new McDonald’s near Walgreens is proceeding apace, as well as the Tim Horton’s/Express Mart at the corner of Five Mile Line and Ridge Road.  Can’t wait to see what Ridge Road traffic will be like when these are finished.
