You’re looking at Harris County’s very first Cherry Berry Self-Serve Frozen Yogurt Bar. It’s going in at 949 N. Shepherd Dr., into a Merchants Park shopping center storefront that most recently housed an AT&T Wireless shop.
Froyo’s arrival in Merchants Park caps 5 years of steady transformation among the tenants in the Kroger-anchored shopping center that sprawls more than 2 blocks south down N. Shepherd and N. Durham Dr. from W. 11th St.
The Kroger embiggened itself immensely in 2010 bringing in a Starbucks along the way. GNC and Subway followed not long after the Kroger’s grand reopening, and around the same time, Tuesday Morning supplanted Anna’s Linens. In mid-2013, the cavernous Golden Island Chinese buffet shut down and was reborn as a Petco. And earlier this year the King Dollar store, where nothing cost more than $1.15, shuttered and came back to life as a UT-Physicians clinic.
