There was a lot of business news last week, so hold on tight.
A neat place called Conservatory Skate Shop opened Friday. Calling it a skate shop is an understatement, though. The store is a place for skateboarders, plant lovers and artists alike. It’s located at 4110 34th St., and the only way you’re going to feed your curiosity is to go look for yourself.
Have you ever wondered why there’s not a food truck sitting on Broadway on any given Friday or Saturday night? That’s because a few years back the Lubbock City Council made it clear that vehicles are to be used for transportation and not as a place to sell food. If that’s not something you can get behind, Lubbock is having its first food truck expo from 12:30-3 p.m. Sunday. The expo will be at the Garden Ridge parking lot at 4304 W. Loop 289. It’ll be a different way to snag a meal, and if it’s of interest, there will be petitions available to sign in support of changing the ordinance for mobile vendors.
Casa Mexicana, a Mexican natural herb store that had been in downtown Lubbock for about 60 years, is changing location. It’s relocating to 2507 Clovis Road and is expected to open back up Monday.
And as you’ve probably heard, Cabela’s also opened last week. Thousands turned out to see Lubbock’s newest outdoor store. Cabela’s spokesman Wes Remmer said if the early turnout is any indicator, it’s going to be a busy year.
