UPDATED 2/26: Mid-week roundup

  1. Signs show two new businesses are in the works on the east side of Broadway:
  • Steve's Handcrafted Ice Cream and Italian Ice is taking over 382 Broadway where KEM leather goods closed last year. It sounds like they will be offering vegan ice cream and/or gelato.
  • Zola Kids, an earth-friendly boutique, is planned to open in March in the space where Pink Paddock moved out of recently. Nicole Wilkie is the owner. Could be nice to have another toy store to balance out G Willikers on the other end of the street.

    2. A sign at Brindisi's last week said the restaurant was closed for the winter. Owner Andy Brindisi called Thursday to clarify: The restaurant has been open on a limited basis, for parties and such, for the last six weeks. It will be open Feb. 12-14 for Valentine's Day diners. He plans to return to a 7 day-a-week schedule on March 1st.

    3. A new emporium, Red Wolf, is in the works at 15 Spring St., in the Congress Building owned by Frank Panza of the Shoe Depot. The owners, Mark and Kendra Yale, are new to the area after spending years on Martha's Vineyard. They plan to sell a handpicked variety of clothing, shoes and accessories for men, women and children, in addition to homegoods.

    Look for further details in an upcoming edition (print and online) of In the Biz.

Here's the get a clue hint: There was a letter to the editor from a business going under after 35-years in Saratoga. WAKE UP. If you don't pay attention, who will?

I'm not sure what letter to the editor you're referring to or what business is going under after 35 years. Want to fill me in?

If you follow this link you'll see that I reported on Image Photo & Events closing their photo lab and moving to open a new portrait studio on Jan. 25. Next time you might want to check the archives before sounding the alarm!

Moving to the basement of someone's house is not relocating the business. Just because you have been in Saratoga for a month doesn't mean you have a clue.

I reported on the official word given to me from the business owner. If there's something more to the story and you have information, then let me know and I'll look into it.
And for the record, I've lived here for nearly two years.
