There is a new sushi restaurant coming to the Randall Road corridor.
Woow Sushi, which already has three locations throughout the Chicago suburbs, is opening a fourth along the Randall Road corridor in Algonquin.
The restaurant is expected to open within two weeks, employees say. Crews are now working to put the finishing decorating touches on the restaurant in preparation for their grand opening, they said. They also are making sure everything will flow smoothly and work properly when patrons start dining inside next month, they said.
The 3,531-squre-foot restaurant is going into Woods Creek Commons, on the west side of Randall, just north of Harnish Drive. A vacant storefront in the strip center in front of Target, and near Game Stop, will be home to Woow Sushi.
The Japanese restaurant has locations in LaGrange, Frankfort and Orland Park.
The new Algonquin location will specialize in sushi, and other Japanese and Asian cuisines. It will be open for lunch and dinner, and offers all-you-can-eat dine-in specials, employees said.
The restaurant will offer a grand opening special once the finishing touches are complete. Stay tuned for details.
Now open: A new pet supply store now is open along the Randall Road corridor in Lake in the Hills. Pet Supplies Plus opened this month in Randall Plaza, at the northwest intersection of Randall and Algonquin roads.
The pet store is in the former Sears Hardware building, just north of Walgreens. Pet Supplies Plus has several locations throughout the country, and many newer locations in the Chicago area. This is the first one along the Randall Road corridor.
In addition to selling pet supplies and pet food, the store also has a self-serve dog wash to get your pup clean without messing up your house.
Lego fun: If you think you've tried every kind of creation with your Lego building blocks, you may want to head to the Barnes and Noble along Randall Road in Geneva this week for a new kind of challenge.
On Friday, Sept. 27, the store is hosting a Hands-On-Learning: Lego Master Builder Academy Robot program.
At the event, kids ages eight and up can learn sideways building and alternate uses of Lego, while creating a robot from the Lego Master Building Academy.
The event begins at 7:30 p.m. inside of the bookstore and reservations are required. For information, call (630) 262-8568. There is a maximum of 25 kids allowed in the class, so if you want to try it out, make your reservations early.
Free tablet stand: Geneva Commons is offering a free tablet stand to customers who spend $75 or more shopping at the Randall Road outdoor mall.
If you spend $75 or more at the stores, you can bring you receipts in to L'Occitane to get one of the free 7-inch stands.
There is a limit of one stand per customer.
