The sign for That’s Nuts — a new business on Madison Avenue specializing in gourmet nut spreads — went up on Thursday afternoon.
The new business, located in the space most-recently occupied by LaBella Cupcakes, is expected to open next month.
That’s Nuts owner Meilio Bakich, said he’d like to keep a lid on more of the details until the store is closer to opening.
“I’m just trying to create a little mystique,” he said, smiling.
He shared that the store will also offer a deli, with a menu featuring “healthy and vegetarian” options.
There will also be a few gift items — including art and toys — for sale.
“It’ll be like an old-school Woolworth’s,” he said. “We’ll have some dollar toys to buy while you’re waiting for a sandwich.”
The front area of the store — located at 15208 Madison Avenue — will feature art from local artists.
“This is an idea I’ve been toiling with for a bunch of years,” he said.
“It’s just time. I decided to give it a shot.”
Earlier this month, the city’s architectural board of review approved the store’s paint and signage.
“This is a great area,” Bakich said. “There aren’t too many ‘for rent’ signs left in the city.”
