Family Dollar is coming to Davis. The discount retailer is scheduled to open late this year next to Westlake IGA Market on Lake Boulevard, a company spokeswoman confirmed Thursday.

The company’s fact sheet says its vision is “to be the best small-format convenience and value retailer, serving the needs of families in our neighborhoods.” Its core customer is considered a “female head of household in her mid-40s, making less than $40,000 a year.”

The fact sheet continues, “We offer our customers a mix of quality name-brand products they use every day, from consumable products such as household paper products and expanded food assortment, to treasures for every home and even quality apparel for men, women and children. We also offer a mix of seasonal products, greeting cards, gift wrap and more.”

Its website is http://www.familydollar.com.

Wingstop is coming to 408 G St., in the space next to El Mariachi, across from Western Feed and Pet Supply. There’s an application posted in the window for selling beer and/or wine.

The family take-out restaurant has more than 500 locations in the United States. The eateries make Buffalo wings to order, and offer 10 different dipping sauces. Side orders include seasoned fries, veggie sticks and yeast rolls. Visit http://www.wingstop.com for chain information.

Construction started Jan. 14 on the new Jack’s Urban Eats in the east end of The Marketplace shopping center in North Davis, part owner Bobby Coyote said.

“If construction goes as planned, the new Jack’s Urban Eats should be ready to open at the end of April,” Coyote wrote in an email Tuesday. “I personally believe that The Marketplace will regain a lot of synergy in the near future.”

The California-themed eatery has locations in Midtown, Folsom, Natomas, Roseville and Sacramento International Airport. The concept is similar to Pluto’s but with a more varied menu that features sandwiches, salads, carved meats, chicken strips and fries.

The Davis restaurant will take part of the former Blockbuster video and Angel Eye Care spaces. Coyote, owner of Dos Coyotes, said there are plans for an outdoor patio as well. For information on the chain, visit http://jacksurbaneats.com/.

To make room for Jack’s, Angel Eye Care & Family Optometry moved to the other end of The Marketplace, to Suite 103, effective Jan. 21.

Massage Envy opened Jan. 21 at 110 F St., Suite C. It moved from The Marketplace in North Davis. It is part of the new retail space being added to the ground floor of the Hallmark Inn downtown.

Volleys Tennis Shop, at 130 G St., Suite C, changed hands on Nov. 28. The new owners are David Brooks and Scot Siden.

Siden and Brooks have been friends since middle school, and played tennis together for River City High School in West Sacramento. Today, Brooks coaches the RCHS tennis team and offers lessons through West Sacramento’s Parks and Recreation Department. Siden works for a nonprofit in Sacramento.

Siden said they are increasing inventory and will be visible at local tennis events.

“Volleys is the exclusive Yolo County supplier of professional-level Babolat, Dunlop, Wilson, Prince and Head equipment, offers a racquet demonstration program so you can try before you buy, and has restringing services for tennis, badminton, squash and racquetball racquets,” he wrote in an email.

The owners for the past four years were local tennis players Shahryar Ahmad, Patty Nishi, Dale Hersch, Walter Lucio, Son Chong and Bob Miller. They took over when the original owner, Roger Gough, moved to the East Coast.

Woodland has a new Italian restaurant. Aria Mediterranean Restaurant, 614 Main St., had its soft opening for lunch on Wednesday. For information, visit http://www.ariaonmain.com/ or call 530-662-0300. It also has a Facebook page.

It was open for lunch last week and launches its full schedule on Monday, with lunch and dinner hours. It closes between 2 and 5 p.m., and is open as late as 10 p.m.

It describes itself as “offering flavors from the Mediterranean coasts.”

Symposium Restaurant, 1620 E. Eighth St., recently added Sunday hours with a limited menu: pizza and salads, available to eat there or take out. According to a Jan. 20 Facebook post, hours for its “Sunday experiment are 4:30 to 8 p.m. This will continue for a month to see the response.” If it’s well-received, Symposium will expand offerings to its full menu.

Blankinship & Associates, an environmental consulting firm, was scheduled to move on Saturday from its downtown location at 322 C St. to 1590 Drew Ave., Suite 120, in South Davis. According to President Michael Blankinship, the firm’s “expertise in risk analysis, water resources and strong ties with the University of California are among the reasons for the need for more space.”

The news release also cited “continued strong demand for its services, particularly from the production agriculture industry.”
