With consumers starting to ease open their wallets in the past few months, some Midlands retailers are taking a chance that an economic recovery will gain momentum.
Here's a round-up of new places to shop and eat:
Coffee fix: A Seattle coffee bar with a Southern flair is coming to Lexington. Jamestown Coffee Co. will open April 23 in Siena Shopping Center at 5166 Sunset Blvd.
The store aims to be a community gathering spot, similar to the coffee houses found in the Northwest, but the store also will serve Carolina coffee roasts and classic sweet tea.
Owners James and Caryn Kirk also are a blend of the two cultures. They met at USC and spent a decade in the Pacific Northwest before returning to Lexington.
