HAYWARD — Famous Dave’s is close to opening at Southland Mall. A sign in front says it’s opening July 22. There’s also a sign indicating the barbecue chain is hiring.
Famous Dave’s is moving into the old Marie Callendar’s building facing Winton Avenue that has been vacant for some time. The barbecue restaurant was serving up food at the recent downtown street fair.
And in downtown Hayward on Foothill Boulevard between A and B streets, a Filipino restaurant is opening at the former crepes restaurant. I haven’t seen a sign showing when it will open.
The consignment shop at A and Foothill is closing. It’s started a going out of business sale. Meanwhile, a few doors down, Dollar Tree has been open for awhile.
The Zumba place that was on Foothill in the same block as the consignment shop and Dollar Tree has moved to B Street next to Eden Jewelry, near Mission Boulevard.
Avocado Freddy’s is scheduled to reopen July 26. It’s on Main Street near the Jackson-Mission-Foothill intersection (the building was formerly a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet) and close to Bret Harte Middle School and St. Regis Retirement Center Avocado Freddy’s is offering some specials with its reopening; check its website for details.
If you hear of other places opening (and yes, closing, sadly), please share. Thanks!
