The Woodbury City Council approved the plans during Wednesday night’s meeting.
The roof of Schneiderman’s Furniture will be cut off and jacked up as crews build a second floor at the Woodbury store this summer. The Woodbury City Council on Wednesday approved several measures that move the project forward. After looking at its expansion options, “the only alternative was to go up,” said Larry Schneiderman, president of Schneiderman’s Furniture. The method that will be used to add the second story is somewhat unique to the Midwest, said Todd Erickson, project engineer, with Folz, Freeman, Erickson, Inc. The roof of the store will be sliced off and raised using hydraulic lifts, he said. The walls will then be built in place. It’s a process seen more often on the East and West coasts, said Roger Tomten, Archnet architect…

It’s part of the next wave of development at the Commerce Hill site, near the Woodbury SuperTarget.
Chuck E. Cheese’s has signed a lease to occupy a building that will be constructed north of the SuperTarget in Woodbury. Developers and company officials are in the process of securing approvals from the city, said Paul Maenner, partner with MW Development. It’s part of the “next wave of new projects that are coming online” at the Commerce Hill development, Maenner said, following Monday’s groundbreaking for a new McDonald’s, along with plans for a waxing studio, nail salon and hair studio in buildings currently under construction. The new Chuck E. Cheese’s building will be about 15,000 square feet, Maenner said. “We’ve very excited about both McDonald’s and Chuck E. Cheese and we expect them to do extremely well in this location,” he said…

Ben Cattoor is the founder and CEO.
Woodbury resident Ben Cattoor recently launched Foodsby, an online service that allows people to purchase meals for delivery directly from restaurants. “Consumers often face hefty fees when ordering food from delivery services, such as minimum order amounts, delivery fees and tips,” Cattoor said in a release. “It’s expensive for individuals to order a meal for delivery just for him/herself on these types of services.” The service works like “a virtual food truck,” the release says. Restaurants arrange a delivery schedule—building, day and time it will deliver and the time orders need to be placed—on Foodsby.com. Individuals at the location order online based on the days and time each restaurant has selected. Consumers can request their …

The two groups, represented by SEIU Local 26, will decide whether to give their bargaining committees the power to call a strike, if necessary, in the lagging contract talks.
Hundreds of Twin Cities-area union janitors and security officers are slated Saturday morning to vote on whether to give their bargaining committees the right to call strikes in the stalled labor negotiations. Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 26 said it has been bargaining for months for new contracts for its more than 6,000 members who are janitors and security officers, and that the groups have been working since Dec. 31 without new contracts. The union said both of the labor bargaining committees have recommended a "yes" vote for a strike authorizstion. The union workers, who will take their strike authorization vote at 11 a.m. at the Minneapolis Convention Center, are "facing the threat of reduced hours and …

The dance studio will close soon as owners Tricia and James Wood begin giving lessons completely off-site.
After Sunday, Woodbury’s Tropical Ballroom will close its dance studio and offer lessons off-site. “Mobile completely,” said Tricia Wood, who co-owns the studio with her husband James. “And we’re super excited.” Customers have increasingly requested lessons elsewhere, Wood said, and it made financial and logistical sense to close the Valley Creek Mall studio. “Over the next three or three and a half months, we’re booked solid, but it’s all off-site,” she said. “Why have a studio when we’re never in it?” The decision came about quickly, Wood said, “and we’re going with it.” Tropical Ballroom has been in Woodbury for the past four and half years and was named the 2011 Business of the Year by the Woodbury Chamber of Commerce. Wood said the …
