New yarn shop set to open in Rochester

Knitters, get your needles ready.

Rochester's new yarn shop — Hank & Purl's Creative Nook and Knittery— will start rolling soon.

Look for Hank & Purl's to open the doors on Nov. 22 at 1615 N. Broadway, in the River Center Plaza. That's just a few doors down from the Quilting Cupboard.

The owners Deb Zipseand Catherine Aagenesare busy tying up loose ends as the opening day comes closer.

Signs should go up in a week or two.


In addition to shelves of yarn and accessories, the new shop will have a spot for the area's roving bands of knitters to gather to share a stitch or two.

Hank & Purl's will have a sitting and knitting area set up for groups or individuals to put their products to work right away.

Biz buzz

OK, here's a mistake that really makes me grimace.

Before hundreds of angry people come after me demanding hamburgers, let's get this straightened out.

When the newly rebuilt McDonald'sby Apache Mallre-opens at 5 a.m. on Thursday, the first 50 people through the door will win a Big Mac sandwich or a salad every week for a year.

I must gotten excited while thinking about free Big Macs, because my clumsy fingers hit the zero key one too many times in Thursday's story about the new McDonald's.

I'm really sorry about any confusion that might cause.


Here it is one more time. The first 50 people will get the free-food-for-a-year deal.
