Marketplace Changes – April 2022

The Glass City’s first gym dedicated to “bouldering,” Climb Toledo, has opened at 3204 Maple St., off Lagrange, north of Central. Bouldering is a unique form of climbing exercise that focuses on ascending smaller walls, but is performed without the aid of harnesses. Two hour sessions at Climb Toledo are open for reservations.

There is perhaps nothing more relaxing than a long soak in the tub, aided by the addition of a soothing and fragrant bath bomb. Pamper yourself with a visit to the Luscious Bath Bomb Boutique, in the Sylvania’s Saxon Square Shopping Center, 6600 W. Sylvania Ave. Owner and artisan Christine Goodman offers bath bombs and a variety of themed personal cleaning products to liven up any bathroom.

Longtime chain Value City Furniture opened a second area location in February at 1301 E. Mall Drive, next to Spring Meadows. The former occupant, Art Van Furniture, and then rebranded as Love’s Furniture, went bankrupt in 2021. The new Value City Furniture location will be the company’s 20th in Ohio.

New places for sweet treats are coming to northwest Ohio. Dessert chain The Peach Cobbler Factory announced plans to expand with new locations planned for Toledo, Sylvania and Perrysburg. The restaurant offers a variety of desserts, including ice cream, cinnamon rolls, banana pudding and, of course, cobblers. The chain hopes to have the new locations open by mid-2022.

Watch the game and enjoy delicious pub grub at Harbor Town Tavern, now open at 7010 Lighthouse Way in Perrysburg, just off of Dixie Hwy. With plenty of appetizers, sandwiches, salads and entrees— along with beer and wine— Harbor Town refers to itself as “the sports bar your wife will actually want to go to.”

The Monster Shawarma plans to open soon at 3305 W. Central Ave. in the Westgate Shopping Center.

French bakery Sur Le Pouce, offering classic baked goods such as brioche, chouquette, breads and more, welcomes walk-in customers at 7 Little Cupcakes at 25661 Ft. Meigs Rd., Ste. D, in Perrysburg. Walk-in orders will be available Tuesday through Saturday from 10am-5pm, and pre-orders can be arranged via Facebook Messenger.

The first Toledo location of the “upscale casual” chain restaurant Cooper’s Hawk opened at 4655 Talmadge Rd., in the redevelopment on the site of the former Anderson’s General Store. Cooper’s Hawk features dining options and handcrafted wine, with locations throughout the Midwest, Arizona and Florida.

The Sylvania Board of Zoning Appeals has approved the establishment of a Goldfish Swimming School at 4959 N. Holland Sylvania Rd., at Brint Rd. in the site of the former Family Video.

A different kind of bakery is now available for Toledoans with the opening of Dollop Shop, located at 3144 Markway Rd. in the Cricket West Shopping Plaza. Offering luxury desserts and custom cakes, the Shop delivers delicious pastries made from scratch in an “eccentric environment.”
