Davis Diamonds Gymnastics is starting to move ground on its new site at 2570 Cowell Blvd. The facility will be approximately 14,000 square feet, compared to its current 9,600-square-foot gym at 2795 Second St. Davis Diamonds owns the new 1.05-acre parcel. Its Second Street space is leased.

The gymnastics center offers recreational and competitive gymnastics, and cheerleading classes. It hosts birthday parties, day camps, open gym times and parents’ nights out.

Drom’s Comics & Cards is closing. Its last day will be Sunday, Feb. 16, its owner confirmed. The comics, cards and collectibles store is at 231 G St., Suite 4, in the Court ‘N Cedar center.

Owner Mark Rodriguez said, “I want to thank everyone who ever stepped inside Drom’s, for all the great memories. It’s been an amazing run. Thank you for letting me have my dream.”

Krush Burger opened on Monday at 1411 W. Covell Blvd., in The Marketplace. Its menu features six different mini burgers — four beef and two seafood — sold in mixable two-packs. Other items include fries, tots, salads, shakes and soft drinks, and 12 microbrews on tap.

The Davis Tako Korean BBQ may open next weekend, as soon as Valentine’s Day. Marketing rep Andy Duong said Thursday it was “going through permits and such.” The Korean/Mexican fusion restaurant replaces El Mariachi at 400 G St. downtown. The menu, larger than its Sacramento location, will include things like tacos, burritos, quesadillas, sliders, rice or salad bowls, and nachos.

Sweet and Shavery, a new Italian shave ice dessert store coming to 210 E St., was scheduled to finish its construction last week. A final inspection may be as soon as this week, co-owner Lindsay Phan said Wednesday. It will serve Italian ice, frozen custard and crepes.

Nearby, nestware continues its “moving-on” sale. The gift shop at 207-B F St. will close for good this month. Its final day has not been determined, co-owner Lynne Ferda said Thursday.

Davis Gold and Silver Exchange, 330 G St., Suite H, has limited hours as owner Pete Richards phases into retirement. He’s there from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays, his phone message says. The store features coins, collectibles, jewelry and postcards.
