Brooklawn Village filling

Brooklawn Village is filling out with the addition of now-open Petco and other businesses coming soon, including salons, a bank and restaurants.

“Our official grand opening was Oct. 2,” Petco general manager Eric Davis said, adding the reception from area shoppers had been positive.

“We’ve had a lot of people talking about the convenience of the location versus going into Turkey Creek,” he said.

Farragut’s Petco is the first to be built in the Greater Knoxville area, although Davis said more locations are planned.

“We carry a wide variety of pet products … dog food, cat food, toys, treats, everything from grooming supplies to vitamins and different remedies for dogs and cats … a little bit of everything,” Davis said.

Besides pet products and supplies, Petco also offers pet education and grooming services. Davis said Petco price matches competition.

Petco is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sundays.

In the works is Papa Murphy’s, a take-and-bake pizza restaurant.

“We’re pizza, but we’re not like Papa John’s and Domino’s and Little Caesar and Pizza Hut,” co-owner Jack Stalker said.

“Our product is prepared every day in the store. Nothing is frozen, everything’s fresh. We make our dough from flour every day.

“We build your pizza when you come in and order it … and then we put the pizza on a bake-able paper tray. So you get your pizza wrapped up, with cooking instructions on it, the way you want it. You take it home and you cook it,” he added.

“It’s fresh out of the oven when you’re ready for it, rather than have to wait for a delivery guy or getting cold pizza,” Stalker said.

In addition to pizzas, Papa Murphy’s offers salads, cheesy bread, dessert pizzas and even chocolate chip cookie dough, available by the tub or rolled out into one giant cookie.

“You can buy it in tubs, where you make cookies out of the dough in the tub, or we put the dough on a pizza tray, where you just pop the thing in the oven and have a giant cookie,” Stalker said.

Stalker plans to have Farragut’s Papa Murphy’s open to the public by mid-December, with a grand opening after the New Year.

He has four other Papa Murphy’s locations in the greater Knoxville area, with others planned.

Farragut’s Papa Murphy’s will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

China Pearl has relocated into a stand-alone building just feet from its former location, which has been demolished. A Bear Creek Coffee will go in next door.

The restaurant officially re-opened Tuesday, Nov. 17. China Pearl’s relocation was to be completed earlier this fall.

Kyle Phillips and David Robinson, owners of Bear Creek Coffee off Middlebrook Pike, will open their second location in Farragut.

In a previous interview with farragutpress, Phillips said the shop would offer coffee and breakfast foods as well as sandwiches.

“I hope that … it will be a benefit to the town of Farragut and to the people who live here and [will be] more convenient to them,” Phillips said in that interview.

He did not return phone calls by press time.

Pinnacle Financial Partners will open at 241 Brooklawn St. between mid-December and early January, according to office manager Diane Jones.

The building’s modern architecture and interior design, featuring curves and stone outside and light wood, water walls and artwork indoors “is really cool when you come in,” Jones said.

The bank will open at 8:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. The lobby will be closed at 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, but the drive-thru will be open until 5 p.m. each day. On Fridays, both the lobby and drive-thru are open until 5 p.m.
