Downtown got some good news as well. From the Ithaca Journal:

Downtown Ithaca to hold 3 ribbon cutting ceremonies March 24
9:31 AM, Mar. 23, 2011

The Downtown Ithaca Alliance and the City of Ithaca will welcome one new business and two re-located businesses to downtown Ithaca with ribbon cuttings scheduled at each location beginning at noon on Thursday, March 24 with a ceremony at Culture Shock, 109 N. Cayuga St., followed by Sheldon Hill at 128 The Commons and ending with the Big Time Barber Shop at 208 The Commons.

Culture Shock is a new addition to Ithaca's dining options featuring "live cultured food" including tart frozen yogurt and kambucha. General manager Marian Flaxman, the daughter of Cornellians, attended the Cornell Hotel School and left to become a health counselor. She decided that Ithaca should have a healthy place to eat that is also fun. Culture Shock is also 100 percent gluten free.

Sheldon Hill has re-located from South Cayuga Street to the space next to Petrune, newly restored after the October fire. Owner Stacy Payette has owned Sheldon Hill's parent company, the Ithaca Antique Center since 2005 and is delighted to have a downtown antiques boutique to compliment the larger store. Sheldon Hill sells unique vintage jewelry and antiques.

The Big Time Barber Shop moved to its current ground-floor location from a much smaller second floor space in the same building at 208 the Commons. Employing three barbers and two apprentices, the new expanded space has a large waiting area where everyone is encouraged to come for conversation and mentoring. Joe Knight, the owner has been a barber downtown since 1995.
