Shoes return to Second Street storefront

Back-to-school shopping just got easier. Generations Family Footwear opened Friday at 710 Second St., the former site of 2nd St. Shuz.

The store is owned by Steve Downs and a business partner. Downs was the manager at 2nd St. Shuz, a sister store to Shuz of Davis. The stores are no longer affiliated.

Downs thought it was important to keep a good selection of childrenÕs shoes available in downtown Davis. He said the store would be more along the lines of the old C.C. DudeÕs, which offered a wide range of prices, not just high-end brands.

CultivŽ frozen yogurt at 231 E St. closed Monday for a week of remodeling. It is converting to a self-serve setup.

A sign posted on its door on Sept. 11 noted the changes. When it reopens with self-serve, it will add chocolate, vanilla and other flavors to its current all-tart menu, the note said.

ItÕs scheduled to reopen at 3 p.m. Tuesday. The first 300 customers will receive free 12-ounce frozen yogurts, the sign said. A note on its Web site said yogurts will be free from 3 to 6 p.m. that day.

CultivŽ opened in Davis (as Swirl) in October 2007. It added an outlet in Vacaville next. A Sacramento store was to open Friday at 19th and S streets. A San Francisco site is in the works, its Web site states.

Curves of West Davis has moved around the corner to a larger space in the Westlake Plaza Shopping Center, next to ChuyÕs Taqueria. Its new address is 1260 Lake Blvd., No. 106.

The womenÕs fitness center features a 30-minute circuit training workout. It is owned by Ann and Don Arneson.

A contest had members voting to select the wall colors. The winning hues include shades of turquoise, pink, lime green, purple and lavender Ñ but not all at once.

Members and employees helped with the Labor Day weekend move and the decorating, Ann Arneson said.

A story on Paste MagazineÕs Web site says Blockbuster plans to close up to 960 of its poorest-performing stores by the end of 2010 Ñ a move to avoid bankruptcy.

The movie rental company plans to convert 250 to 300 sites to outlet stores selling used DVDs, the report said. It also will offer digital downloads, rentals by mail and add more retail kiosks.

The company isnÕt disclosing a list of stores being considered for closure, spokesman Randy Hargrove told the Kansas City Business Journal.

An employee at the downtown Davis Blockbuster said she didnÕt think the Davis store was at risk. Its West Davis store already closed in April.

WoodlandÕs new Rite Aid store opened Thursday. It includes a drive-through pharmacy.

The new store, at 295 W. Main St., is the first using the companyÕs ÒCustomer WorldÓ design. That means it was designed using customer feedback. ItÕs about 17,000 square feet.

Comings & Goings readers eager for gluten-free and vegan sweets have been flocking to Let Them Eat Cake at 423 L St. Unfortunately, some have left disappointed when they learned those options arenÕt always available. My last column wasnÕt clear enough about this.

It offers two regular vegan flavors on its weekly rotation (more by special order), and bakes gluten-free by special order.

Owner Paulette Coffman said, ÒWhat we do offer is a weekly menu of 24 amazing flavors, including a flavor of the month (which changes seasonally), that are baked fresh every day using the finest ingredients and absolutely no preservatives. We also make amazing specialty cakes, and specialize in fondant cakes in particular.Ó
