Turns out Mrs. Fields Cookies might stay open after all. And the new owners are promising to stay open later and on Sundays — attention all local business owners: Stay open; accept credit and debit cards; offer excellent customer service. Otherwise, you might not make it.
At any rate, ranting aside, it’s good to see something happen there that won’t include a vacant storefront for months and months. Sounds like whether it’s the cookie store or a more promising “national tenant,” that corner is going to see some action soon.
