Shop Five Corners

As promised, we are featuring one business each day from the Five Corners neighborhood, where merchants have been impacted by a perfect storm of factors: traffic congestion related to the roundabout construction that began in mid-May, and closure in early May of the Vision Quest fitness facility. We will add a new business to this page as they are posted. We encourage you to patronize them.

  1. Don’t forget College Place Optical. Your new sunglasses are there! Ron and his wife are great.

  2. Thanks for these Five Corners highlights – I rarely shop there, but now I’ve discovered a few places I definitely want to try!

  3. I bet Bar Dojo is pretty easy to get to on Sunday mornings for brunch!

    • Happy Hour is well worth the effort too! The Brunch at Bar Dojo is AMAZING! French Toast to die for!!!

  4. I’m so very glad to see this support for a nice shopping spot. The turmoil of this road revision is horrible. I don’t see the long term benefit of another ridiculous merri-go-round. I hope we don’t loose any of these small businesses due to this overpriced overrated upgrade.
    Hang in there !

  5. There is no benefit at the 5 corners mess with the roundabout..all they needed was a traffic light

  6. next should be Frankie’s Barber and Shop! It is officially open for business.
