It looks like a new bakery is coming to La Plaza Grande. The bakery sells many flavors of bundt cakes and cupcakes. This store anticipates opening in the fall at 988 Bichara Boulevard.

I heard a rumor that there is construction activity going on in the closed Sweet Tomato Restaurant on Hwy 441. Hopefully, another restaurant. Stay tuned for more information in the future.

The Flip Flop Shops & Shoes store had its Grand Opening April 30th. It’s located at 992 Alverez Ave. in Spanish Springs.

Ye Old Thrift Shoppe 106W Lady Lake Blvd. is open while the new section is being built. They are working on both the interior and exterior painting with a new reopening scheduled mid-summer. This thrift shop is a charity shop run by The Villages Hospital, with all profits going there.

The annual Arbor Day Tree Raffle held its drawing May 3rd. Hopefully some of the Villagers in the Lady Lake portion of The Villages won some of the 25 gift certificates for $200 each to be used at the Fairfield Farms Nurseries, Rt 301N in Oxford.
