Shop Talk

ANN TAYLOR ON UNIVERSITY ... The Ann Taylor women's-apparel store has temporarily relocated to downtown Palo Alto at 180 University Ave. from the Stanford Shopping Center. It's scheduled to remain there until the shop reopens in August 2011 in a new space at the mall. Ann Taylor took over the former Magnavox site, opening on April 28. "People can have lunch and be able to shop when before they didn't have the opportunity to make it to the mall," store manager Sonia Mitchell said.

YOGURTLAND IN TOWN ... Yogurtland will join a band of several other frozen-yogurt shops in Palo Alto this month. Opening soon, the new store at 494 University Ave. in downtown will have self-serve yogurt, with 16 flavors and 30-some toppings. "The quality of yogurt is our priority," a Yogurtland representative said. Nonfat and no-sugar-added options will be available.
