Yogurtland in The Marketplace closed on Friday, Aug. 15, and never reopened. Customers who arrived the next day saw covered windows and a removed sign.

A spokeswoman confirmed on Thursday that it closed. “Please note, it was not an easy decision, at all, to close this location in Davis,” Barbara Caruso said. “We have wonderful associates and the best customers in the world. We know people are disappointed, and we sincerely thank the community and our fans for welcoming Yogurtland with open arms.”

The store opened in May 2013 at 1411 W. Covell Blvd., in the spot last occupied by Cold Stone Creamery. Three people owned the Davis franchise. One of them — Ajay Hira, my media contact — did not return emails or calls this week.

I received a stack of reader emails and comments on the Comings & Goings Facebook page. Two customers got responses from a customer service assistant in Irvine, saying the Davis store “moved to Fresno.” Caruso clarified that there is a new location opening in Fresno.

If you don’t want to drive nearly three hours down Highway 99, the closest Yogurtland is 13 miles away — in Sacramento’s Arden area — at 2381 Fair Oaks Blvd. But why? Davis still has YoloBerry, Cultivé, SugarPlum and Pinkberry frozen yogurt stores, along with several others with ice cream-related treats.

The upcoming boba teashop Lazi Cow may be open in about a month. It’s going in at 407 G St., Suite 4, behind Western Feed & Pet Supply. Co-owner Jimmy Phu said that he should know more in a week or so.

Lazi Cow will feature tapioca teas, plus pastries, and treats like Taiwanese brick toast.

Kelly-Moore Paint has a “Coming Soon” sign up at its new building at 4120 Chiles Road, next to Days Inn. As of last week, it remained empty inside.

Urban Appeal, a clothing store benefiting a nonprofit animal rescue group, had its grand opening this month at 626 Cottonwood St., Woodland. All proceeds benefit PAWS (Pet Adoption and Wellness Services).

The clothing exchange sells new and gently used clothing for men, women and children, and accepts donations of clothing and pet supplies. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

For more information, call 530-662-7297 or visit its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/urbanappealpaws. For information on the PAWS nonprofit, visit http://www.pawspetadoption.org.

Seema M. Khan, M.D., has a new practice in Davis at the Davis Psychiatry Clinic, 635 Anderson Road, Suite 13B. Dr. Khan specializes in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression and anxiety — in children and adolescents. She speaks Hindi and Urdu. Call her office at 530-574-4580.

In her listing in Psychology Today, Khan said, “My treatment philosophy is from bio psychosocial model, with therapy and behavior changes being just as important — if not more — than medication.”
