ABOVE: Downtown Greendale
- Aveda salon
- Ferch's Malt Shoppe & Grille
- Sport Clips
- Cousins Subs (previously announced to great fanfare)
Long rumored, the Ferch's announcement is interesting. On the one hand, hats off to Shoppes for placing a locally-owned business. On the other hand, it may be very instructive to see how the horrendous site plan at Shoppes affects an eatery that is primarily known for the "traditional, strollable" mainstreet vibe that you get at its primary location in Greendale.
The Greendale location is on a residential-type street and adjacent to a wonderful park; the Shoppes location will be adjacent to sheets of asphalt and a very busy intersection.
The "local restaurant" announcement shows some promise. Now the question is: Will they get a break on their liquor fee ala Staybridge Suites?
