Comings & Goings: 10 top openings, 6 sad closings in 2016

What a roller coaster year it's been. We're not talking politics. We're talking retail openings and closings in the Greater Rochester region. This is the year when we saw explosive growth in the Neighborhood of the Arts and shocking closings such as Constantino's Market less than a year after it opened. Nothing ever stays static in retail and 2016 was certainly a year for movement. Let's take a look back at the top 10 openings and top six closings in the year-end edition of Comings and Goings.

Business leaders we lost in 2016

Every year carries its own period of mourning, and 2016 is no different, although on a national scale the people we've lost seem particularly noteworthy. But, perhaps, instead of sinking into deep sorrow, let's flip the narrative by celebrating the impact of some of those who left us in 2016. Let the sadness turn to joy in knowing that these businesspeople helped others, made an impact in the area, but, more importantly, set an example of the sorts of success that can be found right here in Rochester.

Small Business Spotlight: Frontier Abstract and Research Services

If you’ve ever bought a house, you know how much paperwork is involved. Now imagine if the transaction involves an office building, or a shopping center, or a hotel. Before all is said and done, someone has to search through volumes of data for things like liens, bankruptcies, and land boundaries. That’s where a company like Frontier Abstract and Research Services comes in.

What's up with the Chick-fil-A rumors?

Now that popular fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A is on its way to Greece, the question now is, will the restaurant’s signature chicken sandwiches be making their way to other area suburbs soon? According to area town officials, the answer is yes. “(Chick-fil-A) said Henrietta was on the drawing board,” he said. “At total, they are going to have four restaurants (in the Rochester area.)”

(When we lived in GA in '79, Chick-fil-A was big)
