Seva Beauty opens in Chicago Ridge

A beauty salon that started out as an eyebrow threading

salon in 2008 in Indianapolis is now open at Chicago Ridge Mall in Chicago

Ridge.

Seva Beauty began as Simply Eyebrows as a

store-within-a-store. It was rebranded in 2010 and its menu expanded to include

lash extensions and brow tinting. Most of its locations still operate as a

store inside of a Walmart store, but some are freestanding such as the new

Chicago Ridge Mall location.

There are now 165 franchises operating in 29 states and

Puerto Rico.

Smilin’ Clyde’s grand opening in Oak Lawn

Smilin’ Clyde’s Hot Dogs celebrated the grand opening last

week of its new cafŽ inside the Oak Lawn Library at 9427 S. Raymond Ave.

The new cafŽ held its grand opening and ribbon cutting on

Feb. 7.

The cafŽ is the latest operation for owner Clyde Anhalt, who

started with a hot dog stand in 2011 that would sell food at local farmers

markets. He has expanded his fleet of carts over the years and now has three.

The library is Clyde’s first storefront location. It serves

breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Clyde’s is the latest eatery to set up shop in the library.

Previous versions included Best Oak Lawn CafŽ and the Bookworm CafŽ.

The cafe is fairly small with a handful of tables.

Hair braiding studio opens at Ford City

Simply Hair Braiding is now open in the west end of Ford

City Mall in Chicago. It’s the second location for the African hair braiding

studio. The original location is located at North Riverside Mall.

Performance Bicycle closes in Orland Park

Performance Bicycle locations have closed after holding

liquidation sales at their stores, including one at Lake View Plaza, 15876 S.

LaGrange Road in Orland Park.

The liquidation sale was a result of the parent company’s

Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

Hobby Lobby hiring for Orland store

Hobby Lobby is now hiring for its new store at Orland Park

Place Mall in Orland Park.

No firm opening date has been set for the store, which

features crafts, hobby supplies and home dŽcor.

Indian restaurant closes in Tinley Park, new one coming

Chak De Fuzyon, an Indian restaurant that opened in 2017 in

a retail strip center at 167thStreet and 80thAvenue

in Tinley Park, is now closed.

The restaurant specialized in traditional Indian fare fused

with Indo-Chinese cuisine and its name translated as “Let’s Go Fusion,” and was

inspired by a famous Bollywood movie “Chak De India.”

The restaurant at 7982 W. 167th St. had been Fat Italian and

Kismet restaurants before that.

Fans of Indian food fear not. A sign on the front of the

restaurant says a new Indian restaurant is coming.

Tandoori House is set to take over the location and,

according to its Facebook page, will feature North Indian cuisine.

No hours or opening date has been set.

For information on Tandoori House, call 708-620-8720.
