    Some activity is going on in the small retail space at the corner of State and High where Revol used to be. Not sure what it is but it seems to be something locally owned going in.



    Nice! Glad to see that corner getting some retail activity back.



    I heard a rumor tonight that this might be where the Peanut Shoppe is relocating to…



    It’s official. This is where the Peanut Shoppe will be moving to. It’ll be pretty cool at night to see their neon sign lit up on the corner here, especially with Ho Toy’s right down the street.

    Their last day in the current location will be March 24th, with reopening tentatively scheduled for 4-6 weeks after that.

    I’m happy they found a space, but sad because I’m going to end up there every week now. Much harder to resist…


    Peanut Shoppe will move a few blocks, expecting more foot traffic
    Store has been a Downtown fixture since 1936

    When they hear the news, almost everyone immediately asks the same question: “Is he going with you?”

    The “he” is Mr. Peanut, and the answer is yes.

    The famed sign featuring the monocle- and top-hat-wearing mascot above the Peanut Shoppe at 46 N. High St. will have a new home when the store relocates to the Fifth Third Center at State and High streets.

    “We can’t go without him,” said Pat Stone, 58, who has owned the nut and candy shop since 1996 with her husband, Mike, 60, and like so many others refers to the Planters mascot as if it were human.

    The shop will close on March 21, she said, and will reopen about a month later in a ground-floor corner space in the Fifth Third building.
