Grace Boutique is a women’s clothing, handbag, shoe and accessory shop specializing in classic styles.
The Young’s Landing building underwent an internal transformation that involved the removal of a load-bearing wall, as well as the creation of a new storefront for Grace and the new business moving next door, Curvaceous Lingerie. Owner/operator Lauren Long opened Curvaceous as intown a 250-squarefoot space inside The Wedding Bell in Okemos. The move will allow her business to expand to 900 square feet and increase her lingerie and shapewear merchandise lines.
Both businesses will have a grand opening at 5 p.m. Friday with refreshments.
Coming to court
The Lansing food court continues to grow with the addition of Good Truckin’ Food, which moves into the parking lot on the corner of Saginaw and Cedar. It joins Detroit Frankie’s Wood-Fired Pizza on the busy corner. Owner Nick Sinicropi’s menu has sliders tacos, and walking taco salad. Early standouts include the Gotham Burger, the Making Me Crazy Bacon Sammich and the Carolina Pig Sandwich. And get ready to start seeing the new must-have dessert around town: Deep-fried Oreos. (You can practically hear your arteries harden just saying it.) And if driving up and grabbing a quick bite still isn’t fast enough for you, you can call in your order to have it ready for pick up.
“Thanks to everybody for 7.5 years of business,” was written on the Facebook wall of Downtown Subs & Salads/ New York Burrito. “Sorry it was so sudden. It was time for us to move on to something new. We are building a organic green house in north Lansing called Eden Industries, so keep an eye open for us. Love and Peace.”
And Love Betti, the antique and vintage shop in Old Town at 100 E. Grand River Ave., also announced it will soon close. Owner Kristin Olson is having a massive sale, with some items as much as 40 percent off. The 1,200-square-foot antique/art shop opened in 2011.
