New Westfield Businesses Expected to Open in Spring

New yogurt, clothing, fine oils and balsamics shops will open soon.

Downtown Westfield will welcome several new businesses this spring.

Let's Yo Yogurt will open its doors at 121 E. Broad St., former home of GameStop, in March or April. Sherry Cronin, executive director of the Downtown Westfield Corporation, said Let's Yo isn't your ordinary yogurt shop. Founded by Eric Casaburi of Retro Fitness, which has locations throughout New Jersey, Let's Yo will feature frozen treats in an Apple-store-like setting. Decorated with social media icons, wall-mounted screens and tables with built-in iPads, Let's Yo will offer free Wi-Fi for guests to enjoy with their yogurt. The company is in the process of applying for permits, Cronin said. 

Francesca's Collections will open at 161 E. Broad St. in the space formerly occupied by Aerosoles. This boutique, with locations in Woodbridge and Menlo Park Malls, offers clothing, accessories and more.

Patricia & Paul Artisans of Fine Oils and Balsamics is preparing to open beside Ferraro's at 20 Elm St. For Patricia and Paul, a husband and wife team who reside in Westfield, the store represents their first entrepreneurial joint venture. Cronin said the couple began occupying the space in January but are in the process of constructing the inside and hope to open in late spring.  

In case you missed it: 

Spring Cleaners & Tailors opened this month at 107 Quimby St. in the space formerly occupied by Rita's. In addition to offering 'green' dry cleaning, pick up and delivery service is also available. Customers are offered a discount until the end of this month.

Other recent downtown openings include Jude Connally, Urban Outfitters and Pita Grill & Creperie. &Grain also recently opened on the Westfield-Garwood border.

Another Yogurt shop, goodie! Isnt the business owner aware of the other 2/3 shops in the neighborhood?

I agree. Why on earth do we want another yogurt place. Can we not be more discerning in our urban planning?

And there is another Let's YO! very close in Blue Star. The owner of the Westfield one must be a dope.

This will be the third yogurt place in downtown and the fifth within a half a mile. Dumb.
