EDGEWOOD PLAZA GETS NEW SHOPS ... Major construction continues at Edgewood Plaza at 2080 Channing Ave. in Palo Alto, near Embarcadero Road. Supercuts and Blu-White Cleaners, which has two other locations in Palo Alto, will be the next two shops to move into Edgewood to join the existing tenants The Fresh Market and Chase Bank. Although sources close to Edgewood say that a coffee shop or casual restaurant will be the next announced tenant, nothing further is finalized yet. The Fresh Market, meanwhile, is gearing up for its annual "Hope Floats" sidewalk sale on May 16-18, offering hot dogs, root beer floats, and ice cream sundaes for $2 each. Proceeds from the three-day event benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). This year marks the 20th anniversary of the fundraiser. "The Fresh Market remains dedicated to our partnership with JDRF to raise awareness and critically needed funds for research related to type 1 diabetes," said Craig Carlock, President/CEO of The Fresh Market.
