Yogurtland is coming to the Randall Road corridor.

The business, which serves frozen yogurt, is expected to open later this year at 432 S. Randall Road in Algonquin.

Crews still are working on the build-out of the tenant space, said Ben Mason, senior planner for the village.

Yogurtland is going to open in a strip center on the west side of Randall, in the same area as Jimmy John's, in front of Mejier.

Yogurtland is akin to businesses such as Yumz in Lake in the Hills and South Elgin on Randall, Spirels in South Elgin, and Yogen Fruz along Randall in Geneva and Algonquin.

At the businesses you fill your cup with the flavor or flavors of frozen yogurt you like, and then you pile it high with toppings.

The new Yogurtland business now is hiring.

Yogurtland first opened on the West Coast, and has been growing across the United States.

It has locations in Schaumburg, Arlington Heights, Glen Ellyn and Wheeling. There also are some locations in Chicago.

Olaf is Coming: An event featuring the super popular snowman, Olaf, from "Frozen" is coming to the Barnes and Noble along Randall Road in Geneva.

A standee of the "Frozen" character will be on hand at the Barnes and Noble as part of several Get Pop-Cultured events the bookstore is hosting this summer.

The Olaf event is at 7 p.m. Friday at the store, 102 Commons Drive.

At the event, guests can build a sand castle for Olaf, make a snow cloud and snowflakes for Olaf, and take your photo with an Olaf standee.

The Get Pop-Cultured fun at Barnes and Noble continues Saturday for It's Marvel Day.

The event, which begins at 10 a.m., will celebrate Marvel's 75th anniversary with giveaways, product offerings and various events.

For example, there will be a Marvel story time, a Lego build and a Marvel character costume contest.

The last Get Pop-Cultured event is 11 a.m. Sunday with James Patterson Day. There will be trivia about the author and a photo opportunity with a James Patterson standee.

For information on any of these events, call (630) 262-8568.

Useful corks: Now there is something you can do with all of those wine corks you uncork.

Houlihan's in Geneva Commons will collect your used corks.

The restaurant then gives them to ReCork, which uses the corks to make sustainable footwear and plant cork trees in California to help reduce wildfires.

ReCork so far has collected 47 million corks and planted more than 8,000 trees.

Houlihan's is at 1322 Commons Drive. Call (630) 345-8000.
