UPDATED 3/8: End-of-week roundup

A sign on the window shows Plum Dandy Frozen Yogurt will open this spring at the Broadway spot Eugenio's Cafe Gelato recently vacated. It will have some direct competition across the street, with Steve's Handcrafted Ice Cream and Italian Ice Johnny's Gourmet Italian Ices also opening this spring.

Look for more details on the owners and outlooks of those businesses in a column (print and online editions) in March.

And, after months of uncertainty, it appears that 80 West Boutique on North Broadway will indeed be reopening -- under new ownership. The store has been slowly emptied of most of its merchandise since around Christmas, but no word yet on who will be responsible for stocking it back up. As the sign says, stay tuned.

What is wrong with people? Why do they insist on putting in multiple businesses that DIRECTLY compete with other businesses across the street? How many ice cream places are there now? How much can a frozen yogurt place make to support the rent that caused Euginio to move? Who even buys frozen yogurt anymore?

I agree with Anonymous (above). Add to that whoever the "new ownership" is of 80 West. The last thing this town needs is another women's boutique. If 80 West couldn't make it work, what says the new owner will? That Algonquin building is the kiss of death. The owner does nothing to improve it, and no one stays in that location longer than they have to.

Never mind Pinkberry or Red Mango, there's a place called Twist in Princeton, NJ that does self-serve frozen yogurt and they're always packed, even though there are at least 5 ice cream places in Princeton. This place sounds more like Twist than Pinkberry or Red Mango. If it is, it's going to do great here and I can't wait for it to open!
