Daydreams & Nightmares, a longtime Modesto costume rental and theatrical makeup shop, moved into a new location earlier this year. Since the move, owner Dana Walters said, strange things have been happening.
Dunkin’ Donuts announced this week it will open in Modesto on Aug. 26. The chain’s Modesto location is at 1320 Standiford Ave., formerly occupied by a Boston Market and notable because it’s across the street from Mr. T’s Delicate Donut, a longstanding and popular independent shop.
As exciting as it is to use this space to write about new businesses, it’s also pretty nifty to learn about remodeling and expansions at current shops or offices. Success is always a good thing, and when longtime businesses can spend money to spiff themselves up or grow, it’s a positive sign for all of us.
