Not too long ago, PampleMousse Bakery opened in a former sub sandwich shop at 118 N. Main St., but other vacant storefronts on Main Street in downtown Wheaton also are filling up, the Chicago Tribune reports.


A place to stop for coffee and a florist also have moved in, and the Tribune reports that at least three more businesses will open their doors and being welcomed by the Downtown Wheaton Association, Executive Director  Paula Barrington told the Tribune.


Just a couple of doors down from PampleMousse Bakery, the River City Roasters coffee shop  was opened in December by Tyler Fivecoat and Erich Goepel, and Andrew Parravano has opened Andrew's Garden Shop, 204 W. Wesley.


Also on the way:

  • Kilwins, a chocolates, fudge and ice cream shop at 100 N. Hale.

  • Armand's Pizzeria.

  • Next Yoga at 120 E. Liberty.

Why dont they ever open up GOOD stores in downtown Wheaton
Wheaton Watcher January 16, 2014 at 08:43 PM
The Coffee store replaced another coffee shop that closed about 2 weeks before the new coffee shop opened. My guess is the new place will last about 4 months. Pizza place, have several of those already. Ditto on the chocolate shop. I am skeptical that any of these new businesses will be open long. Downtown Wheaton is best served with salons, barbershops, an thrift stores.
