Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves, but in fall a major development could open up several business opportunities. What businesses should head to Sussex?
A $21.6 million opportunity for residential and retail growth is set to break ground sometime in fall if all goes will at the village government level. As many residents already know, Arthur Sawall is planning to construct a seven-building complex with a mix of retail and residential spaces on Main Street and Waukesha Avenue. The construction would occur in phases with two "high-end housing" buildings coming first. According to the proposal, new multifamily or commercial buildings would arise annually from 2014 through 2019. The village is prepared to invest roughly $4.7 million over the life of the project if the developer reaches construction benchmarks as time progresses. But as new commercial spaces become ready for tenants, what …

Hess Hypnosis offers an alternative remedy for a wide variety of habits and behaviors — from smoking to the fear of choking.
Sometimes the best cure for what ails us is to close our eyes, breath deeply, relax, concentrate on these words, take another deep breath, exhale, and relax. Feel your body sinking?

The long awaited new restaurant has quietly opened its doors with a grand opening celebration slated for the near future.
It was approved by the Village Board in June, owners were interviewed by Patch in July and rumors of plans to open in August proved false. But now, Boneyard Pub & Grille has finally opened its doors to customers. The restaurant first had a soft opening on Nov. 16 to work out all the kinks, and then officially opened its doors on Black Friday to customers. While no grand opening has been planned, the business says one is still in the works. A grand opening, however, hasn’t stopped eager customers from noticing the restaurant opened. Employees say once the electronic sign read “Now Open,” people started pouring in. The pub & grille itself has three bars, two dining areas, two private banquet areas and enough high-tech gadgetry to make any …

Company president tells village leaders distribution would be consolidated in Sussex from three different locations.
Reinders Inc. is planning to consolidate its distribution center in Sussex and bring 90 full-time jobs into the village. Craig Reinders, president of Reinders, told the Sussex Plan Commission this week that the Elm Grove-based company is planning to occupy the former Poly One location at W227N6225 Sussex Rd. by the end of the year. If the plan wins approval from the village, he said the company will begin moving into the facility by fall. “This will be a corporate headquarters,” Reinders said. “The tentative goal is to start the transition in fall and be occupied by the end of the year. By June or July, we plan to be making improvements.” Reinders, which has been in business for 145 years, is a distributor of products related to turf and …
