Here’s a few items I found while finishing up my Sunday retail column…
– A variety of projects were recently given the permit approval in Bellingham, including the remodel of the Labels consignment store on James Street (near Trader Joe’s), Krumbz Deli at Bakerview Square, the final improvements for Rocket Donuts in Fairhaven and the BevMo/United Furniture remodel at 110 W. Stuart Road, near Walmart.
– Several other city projects continue to go through the application process, including the Soy House restaurant at 400 W. Holly St. (in the former Boss Tweed space), the $7 million remodel for Winco at the former Joe’s Sporting Goods building at 300 E. Bellis Fair Parkway and Vinostrology, a wine bar going into 120 W. Holly St.
– CJ’s Beach House Restaurant at 7878 Birch Bay Drive had its liquor license approved by the state liquor control board. Owner Jack Niemann is planning to have a soft opening for the restaurant on Thursday, Feb. 7.
