Common business courtesies coming back


VALDOSTA — Business Roundup

The Egg and I restaurant on N. Ashley Road is opening for friends and family today and tomorrow is the grand opening for customers.

The new Nashville Tractor dealership on N. Valdosta Road is holding its grand opening next weekend, so be sure to drop by there to say hello.

The new physician’s professional building on the corner of N. Oak St. Ext. by Winn Dixie is nearly done, with the exterior looking pretty finished and work going on inside.

The new Waffle House on Baytree Road is not yet open, but they are denitely close, and the new Dollar General on the corner of Northside and Forrest is going up so fast, it will be open before you know it.

There is a renovation permit for a store in the Valdosta Mall, The Buckle. A great store for trendy dressers, it’s popular and in most malls in Florida and larger cities, so it’s great to see some additional national retailers coming to town.

Still waiting to see when Phase Two of the Academy Sports complex is going to begin, although I hear it’s very soon. It will add several additional stores to the area on Norman Drive, some of which I understand are not currently here in Valdosta.

The Bad Habitz Saloon and Grub on Gornto Road near the mall is looking to open mid-April. Despite all of the cars seen in the parking lot, which has spurred many calls to me asking about their opening date, the vehicles belong to workers and employees training and finishing the interior, and no, they aren’t open for business yet.

Splash Island is now open at Wild Adventures, so take the family and your season passes to the park and enjoy the day!

That’s it for this week, but if there’s something I missed, please let me know!
