The former Border’s location in West Lafayette is being split up into eight retail spaces.

In addition, two new businesses will move into the shopping complex.

Cold Stone Creamery and Rocky Mountain Chocolate will take over the Snow Bear Frozen Custard site, and Domino’s will replace Topper’s Pizza.

Curtis is hoping the city’s Redevelopment Commission can help develop a plan to bring more businesses to the pedestrian walkway.
