New businesses are moving into Blacksburg's First & Main shopping district.
The newest addition is national retailer, Alumni Hall. It will take over the space recently occupied by gift store, On a Whim and expand to include the vacant space between it and Bull & Bones Brewhaus. On a Whim moved a few stores down toward the main entrance of the shopping center.
Alumni Hall sells licensed collegiate merchandise. The store, which is moving from the New River Valley Mall has 17 locations in nine states. The Blacksburg location will sell Virginia Tech gear.
On a whim relocated and is now open a few stores away near Talbots.
Blacksburg Eye Associates recently opened next to Sal's Italian Restaurant. After months of planning, construction is now underway for the new Frank Theatres CineBowl & Grille.
