Hollywood Tobacco - Cool Warrendale Thing of the Week

Oh, what a week this has been for me personally. It started with an insanely busy weekend and isn't likely to let up for another couple of days.

Anyway, before I rush off again, I wanted to chime in with the Cool Warrendale Thing of the Week for October 18, 2006. It's the soon to be opened Hollywood Tobacco Shop (19501 W. Warren Avenue).

It's spray-painted sign is tacky as all hell and I'm not a huge fan of tobacco stores in general. However, and this is the important part, the opening of Hollywood Tobacco brings us to an even dozen for the number of new businesses to have opened in Warrendale this year.

Yes, one of them - Papa Joe's Buffet - has closed its doors. Business is bad for restaurants right now in general. However, the other ones seem to be doing just fine for themselves.

Still, I think it's very cool that we've had a dozen new businesses open in Warrendale this year and three more undergo a significant expansion. When you consider how things are for the rest of Michigan - Warrendale is kicking butt and taking names.
