Radiological Associates of Sacramento has confirmed that it is closing its Davis imaging center. The University Mall tenantÕs last day will be Dec. 31. It holds the spot coveted by Trader JoeÕs, so although there is no official confirmation from the landlord, you can connect the dots.

Sarah Worley, economic development director with the city of Davis, told The Enterprise earlier this month that Trader JoeÕs is expected to submit building plans to the city soon. Construction is due to start after April and plans are to open by October.

Worley told reporter Jeff Hudson that Ònegotiations are still going onÓ between Forever 21 and Centro Properties, which owns and manages the mall, in the 800 block of Russell Boulevard. Forever 21 is a clothing merchant expected to take the old Gottschalks site.

Stacey Slater, senior vice president with Centro Properties, would neither confirm nor deny either possibility.

ÒWe will issue an updated press release on this asset within the next few weeks,Ó Slater told The Enterprise.

A new outdoor garden and gift shop will open Saturday at 1015 Olive Drive. Beyond the Garden Gate is adjacent to Design House Furniture Galleries.

Beyond the Garden Gate will offer Òdistinctive gifts for the home and garden,Ó including patio plants, pots, gardening hats and aprons, garden accents and gift wrapping, said Nancy Storm, one of the owners.

The three partners in the business are all longtime Davis residents: Becky Heard, Nancy Storm and Pat Stromberg. They plan to offers classes featuring local artists and garden experts, and birthday parties where children can decorate and plant items. They hope to eventually rent out the space for social events.

The store will be open for the holidays, Saturday through Dec. 27. It will close for the winter to complete landscaping and other projects, and reopen permanently in the spring, as soon as March.

Its hours starting Saturday will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Tuesdays, and Thursdays through Saturdays. Sunday hours will be noon to 5 p.m. Phone: (530) 756-6698.

Battaglia plans to open Avant Garde Salon on Jan. 1, according to a spokesman for Davis Commercial Properties, which handled the lease.
