Have a safe and healthy Halloween


-- — Business Roundup

A new fitness place is moving into the North Oak Square shopping area off Inner Perimeter. It’s called Kinetix Health Club and it’s next to the Nail Expressions.

Just down from there, next to Chick-fil-A, I asked last week if anyone knew what was going in where the lot is being cleared, and I received numerous responses saying it’s going to be a tire store.

Alas, still no word on what the site is being prepped for at the corner of Oak Street near the Winn Dixie plaza. Rumor is another dollar store, but would love to hear from someone who knows for sure.

In the Winn Dixie Plaza, by the way, the new greatly expanded and updated Bealls Outlet there is holding a grand opening celebration on Nov. 16. The new store includes new departments, such as a family footwear area, as well as expanded clothing and other areas.

In the mall area, in the Baytree Center, work is continuing on the former Moe’s restaurant location. A reader told me this week that they think a barbecue place is moving in there but there’s still no signs up to know for sure.

Speaking of signs, the ones that used to say Loco’s are now all down. The one on the building and the one on Gornto have both been removed, and workers were still hard at it all last week. The building is not a deep red color and again, I hear it’s going to be called Bad Habitz Saloon, but no confirmation yet.

Near there, the hotel behind Burger King near TJ Maxx has been redone and is now the Azalea Inn.

On Baytree Road, in Remerton, the Natural Health store has a new neighbor called Gone Gorgeous Boutique. Looks cute from the outside, so I’d recommend checking it out.

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