MunchkinLand Play Center coming soon

A play center for children ages 6 months to 10 years is slated to open on the west end of the Frontier Village Center in Prescott in early January.

The center will offer stay and play, where children are accompanied by a parent for their time there, as well as drop and shop, where the parent can drop off their children for two hours at a time and go shopping, see a movie, or whatever else they need to do for that time.

The business will be in suite 29, near Zeke’s Eatin’ Place. For more information and to watch for the grand opening announcement, visit the business’s Facebook page, Facebook.com/Munchkinland.Playcenter.

A Dog’s Life temporarily closes

A Dog’s Life, a longtime hot dog stand located outside of Foxworth-Galbraith Lumber Company along Sixth Street in Prescott, closed last week and will remain so for quite a while, according to longtime patron of the stand Parker Anderson.

The stand’s owner, Pat Gregory, recently underwent hand surgery and is recovering from the operation, Anderson said.
