Village in the Boulders development

The early construction stages of a commercial development has begun next to Natural Grocers along Willow Creek Road in Prescott.

The building will have space for three tenants, said Ted Wadlow, job superintendent for Prescor Builders, the general contractor hired to manage the project.

Wadlow believes one of the tenants will be a hair salon franchise while the other two spaces have yet to be filled.

Blimpie Sub Shop closes

Gone are the days of the beef turkey cheddar Panini and the Chicken Caesar wrap at Blimpie Sub Shop in Prescott.

The chain restaurant located in the Depot Marketplace, 100 E. Sheldon St., in Prescott recently closed.

Owner Frank Assadi had been a Blimpie franchise owner for more than 20 years before making the decision to completely get out of the business with the closure of his Prescott location.
