...And we're off an running with the 2013 business counter. Last week it was 7-11 opening. This weeks it was Floyd's 99 Barbershop at 27 E. Harrison. Apparently they are offering 1/2 priced hair cuts in honor of their opening (unless the signs on the window are lying).
positive things about this place and are looking forward to trying it out. They join another new barbershop, Sports Clips, which just opened in December of 2012 and is just across the street. Competition for hair cuts is getting intense!
On another note, it looks like we may have our first closed business of 2013, Donna's Cafe (1255 S. State). While we aren't sure if they're permanently closed, the sign on their window isn't encouraging:
Donna's Cafe will be closed until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We hope this isn't the case. While some complained about various things when Donna's initially opened in January of 2011, it seems like they found their groove (insert jazz pun here). Their yelp reviews were solid and they had a 4 star rating.
In terms of numbers, we've added 2 businesses and lost 1, which makes it seem like we're heading in the right direction. However, we would rather have one Donna's, then two 7-11's or Floyd's. Hopefully this isn't a permanent thing for Donna's...stay tuned!
