Rita Baron of Raga Properties said Central Bank completed its infill with Federal Construction Inc., while Cedar Construction LLC was general contractor for the rest of the building.

417 Charcuterie
After opening its first brick-and-mortar store in August 2020, 417 Charcuterie moved May 1 to 2672 S. Glenstone Ave., in Brentwood Center South. The business, which sells charcuterie boards prepared with meat, fruit, cheese and sweets, previously operated at 1323 W. Sunshine St. Owners Jessica Blodgett and Courtney Williams also changed the venture’s name earlier this year from Springfield Charcuterie LLC. Blodgett said they signed a three-year lease with Jared Commercial Real Estate LLC, declining to disclose the rate or relocation costs. She said four employees work at the 850-square-foot shop, formerly occupied by New Wave Wireless. The charcuterie creations range in size from individual lunch bowls to large “tablescapes” that feed 500 people at weddings and corporate events, Blodgett said. Prices begin at $5 for a single-serving cup, while a party platter for 10 costs $99, according to the company website. The business started in February 2020 as a home-based venture.

The Furologist
A 10-year veteran of the pet grooming industry became a first-time business owner with the May 1 opening of The Furologist LLC. Brittny Knapp launched the company at 193 S. Marshall St., Ste. F, in Rogersville. She worked the past four years at another Rogersville grooming company, The Pet Cottage LLC. Knapp said she pays $750 a month on her  two-year lease with Marc Strecker of 193 S. Marshall Investors LLC. Startup costs for the 1,200-square-foot shop were roughly $12,000, Knapp said. She is the lone employee, handling dog baths, haircuts and other services, including nail filing and teeth brushing. Grooming packages are priced by the dog breed, size and coat type and length, she said. Prices range $45-$55 for small breeds, $55-$65 for medium-size dogs and $75-$100 for most large breeds. Knapp said she started as a pet groomer for Petco in Palm Desert, California, at 18 years old.
