New business is always good news.
Existing business expansions and new small business have both been cropping up at a seemingly better rate than usual during the months of October and November.
Here are just four:
The former Aqueduct Convenience shuttered its doors almost two years ago and has been empty since. Although it was in close proximity to other convenience stores and restaurants, students at Notre Dame, Ross and St. Kevin’s frequented it and were a large portion of its customer base. The new owners of Convenience King took over the space in October and quickly put up a brand new sign.
Just a few doors down, things can be seen taking shape at the former Colombo Pizzeria. This is yet another location that was frequented by students nearby and will undoubtedly be a popular lunch spot again. Fresh Rolls & Co. is opening soon.
ReChic Painted Furniture is a wonderful small business that upcycles old or vintage wood furniture and decor into vintage-inspired masterpieces. After just 5 months, ReChic has outgrown their space at 1 Niagara St. and will be opening a showroom in December on 45 Broadway St.
Eye Care has taken over an empty storefront between Avondale and Popeye’s at Niagara St. & Thorold Rd. They wasted no time in October installing a new sign, painting the space and setting up all in just a couple weeks.
