Doncaster Outlet Offers
Doncaster Outlet has taken half of the
space in Eastgate Shopping Center once
occupied by Play It Again Sports, between
Wild Bird Center and Steinmart. Doncaster’s high-end women’s clothing is traditionally sold by independent wardrobe
consultants out of their homes. The merchandise in the outlet store is a season
behind, meaning the fall clothes sold now
are from the 2008 collection. Prices are
routinely marked down 25 percent from
the original tag, and the store also offers
additional promotional items.

1800 E. Franklin St., Chapel Hill, (919)
Closings and Other Changes
When the flour ran out at Katie’s Pretzels in September, the stand closed. After
at least 15 years in a corner of Carr Mill
Mall, the soft-pretzel shop fell victim to
declining foot traffic. … The building
housing Mansion 462, a nightclub at 462
W. Franklin St., has been put on the market
for nearly $1.3 million. … Players nightclub got a makeover and a new operator
over the summer. New operator Nick
Stroud has booked bands to play a couple
of nights a week. The club will show
every Carolina football and basketball
game during the season and cater parties.
… In September Radio Shack took over
the remainder of the space vacated by Play
It Again Sports in Eastgate Shopping
