Chik-fil-A to replace Krispy Kreme

| Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2006

The Krispy Kreme doughnut store at 1104 E. Pittsburgh St. in Greensburg closed last month, about three months shy of what would have been its fourth anniversary.

However, the building will not be vacant for long, as a Chik-fil-A outlet is due to open in mid- to late January, said Mark Baldwin, spokesman for the Atlanta-based quick-service chicken restaurant chain.

The stand-alone Chik-fil-A restaurant is expected to create about 65 new jobs. Baldwin said the outlet will be operated by Chuck Clark, Jr., who runs a Chik-fil-A store in Westmoreland Mall.

• Speaking of new homes, Vocelli's pizza opened Sept. 22 in the Davis Center at 660 E. Pittsburgh St., Greensburg. The pizza store used to be located at 110 Harrison St., Greensburg.

The Vocelli's in Greensburg is one of four outlets operated by Pat and William Dingel. The couple also run Vocelli outlets in Lower Burrell, Butler, Natrona Heights and Springdale.

• Mary Ann Powers of Greensburg urges potential customers to always celebrate in style, buzzwords for her new business, Sherrin Event Planning.

With the holiday season fast approaching, Powers says her business can produce themed events or assist in corporate event planning, event entertainment and planning Christmas parties. "Weddings, parties, corporate and special events, these occasions are alive with personalities and soul," Powers said.

Powers said she is still looking for space in downtown Greensburg to set up shop. She hopes to open before the Christmas holidays. More information can be obtained by calling 724-837-2572.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
