Special to The Enterprise
After more than a decade of anticipation, DavisÕ own Trader JoeÕs finally opened Friday in University Mall.
The 12,000-square-foot store is at 885 Russell Blvd., at Sycamore Lane. Its hours are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
The next big tenant to come to University Mall will be clothing retailer Forever 21, which is due to open in the spring. It will fill the former Gottschalks spot.
Comings & Goings and DavisWiki have received notes asking if The G Street Pub is closing. ItÕs not, manager Devin Casell said Thursday.
The pub, at 228 G St., is renegotiating its lease, which is due to expire in April.
ÒIÕve heard the same rumor about 10 times,Ó he said. ÒI guess this town doesnÕt have enough to talk about.Ó
Tutti Frutti Frozen Yogurt changed hands last Sunday. The new owners are Alexandra and Eric Restrepo. The store is at 1520 E. Covell Blvd., next to Nugget. The previous owner was Lucy Park.
Alexandra said they ÒarenÕt changing the yogurt portion of the business.Ó They are discussing Òbringing in a few new additional products (possibly coffee, tea and other hot drinks).
ÒAlso, we are happily taking any suggestions for additional topping options for the yogurt,Ó she said. ÒWeÕve also created Facebook and Twitter pages for social networking types to keep up on our current flavors and get Internet-only discounts.Ó
The storeÕs hours are 11 to 11 daily.
TracyÕs Karate & Mixed Martial Arts Studios moved earlier this month. Formerly at 514 Second St., Suite A, its new spot is at 706 Fifth St., Suite A, last occupied by Bizarro World.
