A Kelly Moore Paints store is coming to the former Denny’s space at 4120 Chiles Road, next to Days Inn. The site has been vacant for some time. Caffé Italia’s owners planned to move their restaurant there at one time, but plans fell through. After Denny’s, the space was an Abe’s Café & Grill and Café Casablanca.

The exterior and landscaping improvements are mostly done, but more work is ahead for the gutted interior. I don’t have a projected timeline for opening.

NorCal Indoor Sports in Woodland is under new ownership. Bill Campbell took over the multi-use sports facility on March 1. The former owners are Ian Striegler and Randy Nunes. It specializes in inline hockey for youths and adults, and offers parties, public skating and a pro shop.

“We have made some significant upgrades to both the facility and the programming in the two weeks since the transition of ownership, and are planning to continue on that course for the foreseeable future,” Campbell wrote in an email Thursday.

Improvements include a children’s play area, snack bar with healthy options, comfortable seating, and a new electronic display. Aesthetic improvements include new paint and a rearranged floor plan. Campbell also plans to add new flooring, storage and lighting, upgrade the locker rooms, and add space for more rental equipment, he said.

The facility is at 1460 Tanforan Ave. Visit http://www.norcalindoorsports.com/home for more information.
