More shops, restaurants add to Pleasanton's business environment

Original post made on Jun 10, 2011

While the economy is not yet coming up roses, it's looking a lot better for downtown merchants and restaurants and for the rest of Pleasanton aas new businesses move into town and others expand. Downtowners cheered last week with the news that Margaret Smith will reopen Domus, her popular kitchen and home accessories store, at 652 Main St., which has been closed for three years. Nearby, Masood, with 03 years in the restaurant business including the last 10 years at Fontina's, opened his new Chianti's Ristorante Italian at 436 Main St., which has been packed with customers on most evenings ever since. The same enthusiastic response has been seen at Alicia and Demetrious Shaffer's Prim's, a colorful boutique at 520 Main St. that offers the latest in women's clothing, shoes, accessories and even upcycled and reclaimed primitive furniture. A new medi-spa and the city's first hydroponics and organics supply store are also newcomers to the retail community in the downtown district.
