If you don't stop by Freighthouse everyday for a coffee and cinnamon roll you're likely to miss the changes taking place. Walking through the other day for lunch I saw a handful of changes taking place. First, the burger place in the food court is getting a makeover. I don't have a before picture to share but here's what it looks like currently:
That will round out a nice selection of burger places from Mary's to Friesenburger to Burger Frites United.
Next up, as Jen mentioned the other day, is the India Bazaar. It's going in just off the food court and sounder waiting area. Though I'm not a huge cook I'll be interested to see if they bring in other items for the home that might lure me in.
We could have a spice/incense battle on our hands here. Who will win: India Bazaar or Crescent Moon Gifts just down the hall?
Also looks like there's a bit of a flower shop rearrangement happening. The shop that was there (Laura's?) looks like it's giving way to another called Bella Blooms.
I'm sure there will be more to come but will changes like this fix Freighthouse? We shall see.

|The one thing that always struck me about Freighthouse as a child was the smell. It was completely unidentifiable and totally distinct. Looking back, I suspect it must have been simply the smell of Everything All At Once.
Looks like they're working hard to bring that smell back, between the ever-changing food court, the cinnamon rolls, spices, incense and a flower shop.
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
