When did Figs open? Best, freshest pizza and Italian food in town!

Look at all the empty space in town. Alot more closing than opening. Hawlyville transfer station, gone. No commercial base, higher taxes, can't sell your house. It' a negatively reinforcing cycle.

Forgot Dress Barn in Sandhill Plaza as well. Stone Cold Creamery as well? May have been last year. More empty space, and more stores coming and going.

Patronize your local merchants ... It keeps money and cash flow in our town! We can boost our own economy, not someone else's !

Just saw that Hideaway was closed. Not sure when Dress Barn and Cold Stone Creamery closed. Added Our Green House and Big Buddha cigar lounge to the opened list. Figs opened last year.

There's a tattoo place that just opened as well. Not sure of the name, it's on S. Main near Botsford FD.

Did Ace Hardware next to Carluzzi's close?
Lee Elkins February 21, 2012 at 10:14 PM
Hi Daniel. I just posted a short article on this. Everyone I spoke with at Caraluzzi's said the store is out of business. ACE was locked and dark today, with no notice on the door.
