If you don’t know it already, The Mug coffeeshop has moved from the downtown to the west side in the Vintage Shopping Center. There you can find them in a much more spacious place with even a drive-thru window! There are still all the pastries, scones, and donuts inside! Be sure to ask for the Apple Cider, in season right now!

The McElwee’s have done a good job restoring the old Brunke Hardware on Thompson Ave. Rumor has it that once it is finished, our beloved Bliss will be moving there from Broadway! 29137011_10156152436459501_2528649690438696960_o

Watch for the Thompson Ave corner to really change when the Excelsior Springs Chamber gets fully moved in to the old Sports and More store. The front parking is big enough for the trolley!

City Councilman Brent McElwee has taken on the old Buckley Hotel across from the police department downtown. He’s restoring this historic building into a bed and breakfast!

The Wheeler’s are ready for their debut with their toy store Broadway Toyz! They had a sneak peek during the Pumpkins and Mums Festival, showing us the type of products that will be carried. Unique finds and quality toys like Melissa and Doug will be for sale. Love that it’s right across from Bobkorn so kids can get their fill of fun in one area of downtown!

Stay tuned…I’ll be featuring another 5 soon! Glad to see so much economic development and improvements being made to town!
