Middle Tennessee's last remaining TCBY store will close its doors later this month. Franchisee Nainesh Shah, who at one point was involved in a handful of area locations, says the Utah-based parent company has been informed of his plans but hasn't gotten in touch with him. Josh Adams has more.
Archiver's, an arts and crafts concept catering to scrapbookers, is preparing to open the doors of a store in the Cool Springs Crossing development, which will be its first in Middle Tennessee and second in the state. The Minnesota-based company will host a grand opening at its site near Toys R Us this Friday through Sunday.
Unique to the concept is the store itself. Spacious and inviting, it provides comfortable workspaces and classrooms where people can focus on their projects in a supportive, inspirational atmosphere. The Archiver’s workroom is free to use and materials used can be paid for at the end of each visit. The cumulative effect is an environment that surpasses all definitions of a standard crafting store.
