A popular drive-in burger joint will soon be opening a location in Short Pump. Sonic Drive-In is coming to the Brookhollow Shopping Center, in front of Kohl’s and Home Depot, at 11250 West Broad Street. The Oklahoma-based chain is known for their carhop service with menu items from burgers and sandwiches to milkshakes and limeades. Construction should be complete by mid-fall or early winter.
Across the street, diamond importer Diamonds Direct is building a free-standing building on an outparcel of West Broad Village, between REI and Wells Fargo, near the West Broad Street Interstate 64 eastbound on-ramp. The company specializes in diamonds and engagement rings and has four other locations; Austin, Birmingham, Charlotte, and Raleigh.
One block to the south, Bombshell Salon, well known in Carytown for hair, skincare, tanning and waxing services, is moving into the space formerly occupied by local gift and home accessories store The French Boutique, which recently closed its doors. Bombshell is expected to open in September or October.
