DavisÕ first big box store has its grand opening on Sunday, Oct. 11. Yes, IÕm talking about the giant new Target at 4485 Second St. in Mace Ranch. A soft opening is planned Wednesday after a launch party for special guests Tuesday night.

The 137,000-square-foot store is one of 100 picked nationwide to offer an expanded Ñ but not full-scale Ñ grocery section with fresh produce, meat and baked goods. Target spokeswoman Anna Anderson told The Enterprise that it gives customers a convenient place for a Òmid-week fill-in grocery trip.Ó

The storeÕs hours will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays.

A Taste of Thai has signed a lease for 301 G St., the site of Noodle Express.

Noodle Express has been at the Third and G streets spot Ñ which is owned by The Davis Enterprise Ñ for 19 years. It will close at the end of the year, owner James Chen said.

Husband-and-wife owners of the Thai eatery, Vitavat Lumpongpoung and Duangthida Sahatranseekul, take over the lease in January. They have restaurants of the same name in Sacramento, Natomas and Grass Valley, said Michael Bisch of Davis Commercial Properties.

The new owners plan to do some remodeling and open in April, Enterprise Publisher Burt McNaughton said.

Red 88 Noodle Bar, in the former space of 2K Thai at 223 G St., should be open by Thursday, owner Nate Yungvanitsait said. The Yungvanitsait family owned 2K Thai, but moved it across the street in April, changing the name to KetMoRee.

For Red 88, the family has done an attractive remodel of the interior, with reds and black. The menu features appetizers, noodle soups, noodle dishes and vegetarian offerings.

A new restaurant is going into the former TogoÕs spot at 715 Second St.

The beer and wine licensing notice in the window says the restaurant will be called Beer and Tacos. The interior is being gutted. It appears to be several weeks at least before it will be ready to open.

La Mesa RV on Chiles Road has gone into hibernation again for the winter. Most of the vehicles are gone and the showroom is bare. A salesman who answered the phone from another location said it had gone into a seasonal operation. He couldnÕt confirm when the dealership would reopen.

Comings & Goings readers are eager to know whatÕs happening at the former DennyÕs site on Chiles Road next to the Howard Johnson Hotel. West DavisÕ Lamppost Pizza has been planning a pizzeria and brewery there, but the owners say there is Ònothing new to report at this time.Ó After DennyÕs, the space was filled briefly by Abe’s Cafe, then Cafe Casablanca.
