So the new Decatur Focus for March is out and there’s a whole section dedicated to closed and opening restaurants and shops. Is this a nod to David and I? Regardless, it was nice of the city to do this since it confirms many of the things we’ve been seeing ourselves and hearing from our well-informed readers (and commenters!) Plus it confirms there still are no solid replacements for Mick’s or Zocalo yet.
In fact, between the two blogs, we’ve already exposed every single development detail listed except for one; And that’s the title of this post.
According to the city pub, Little Shop of Stories is banana-splitting with Jake’s and moving across the Square to the “Starbucks building” at 133 E. Courthouse Sqaure. Exciting stuff! That side of the Square definitely gets more foot traffic, so just like recently announced Wordsmiths move, they should benefit simply from more people walking past their store. But I’m a bit unclear where there is room in the Starbucks building, because the only other store I would consider in that building is Vivid Boutique, which just opened a few months ago. Perhaps their opening on the second floor where that annoying Adams Realty sign is hanging?
I’ll try to find out the exact new location details, but in the meantime if anyone has any clues, don’t leave ME hanging!
