Pretty soon the Montrose area will have a place for diners who can't get enough of soup — Zoup! Zoup! reports its opening date as early 2013 at 3900 Medina Rd., location, next to Hudson's. Workers are detailing the interior of the building as we speak. We haven't heard back from Zoup! management yet, but here's a little roundup from its website: Obviously, we're talking soup here. Not only that, but the restaurant carries salads, grilled sandwiches and lots of baked goods and drinks. There are hundreds of soups to choose from (about 12 choices a day), and employees will encourage you to sample — can't argue with that, right? If you want to learn more before the opening, just check out the restaurant's website.

Giant Eagle will open the gas station early next year.
The $2.2 million station has six pumps and a convenience store. Customers traveling east on West Market can make a right turn in, but have to exit at Trunko Road. Customers cannot access the gas station by making a left turn from West Market. To accommodate the increased traffic at that intersection, Giant Eagle agreed to pay for more than half of the cost to widen Trunko Road, which was finished earlier this summer.

Ederer Real Estate wants to build a multi-tenant retail store next to Rockne's. What stores do you want in there?

Commission members told representatives they could return with a new plan in December. McDonald's representatives also tabled two variance requests that were on November's Board of Zoning Appeals agenda. Below are the articles written about the plan.
