Larry's Pizza looks to Hot Springs, Little Rock; Jimmy John's set for capital city

Larry's Pizza looks to Hot Springs, Little Rock; Jimmy John's set for capital city

One location restaurant chain prepares to expand in Little Rock, while a national name is setting its sights on well-trafficked corner of the capital city, according to this week's Arkansas Business newspaper.

First, Larry's Pizza, the buffet-style pizza slinger that opened its first location in southwest Little Rock in 1992, is adding a second west Little Rock location, this one at 801 S. Bowman Road. The space once housed Dragon Palace Buffet at the Bowman Station project. The new Larry's will be about 7,500 square feet.

But the chain isn't stopping there.

Wal-Mart sets sights on Little Rock for new Neighborhood Market

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc. of Bentonville is nearly always looking to add to its stable of discount stores, grocery stores and warehouse clubs. Now, there's more signs that the world's largest retailer is about to set up a shop in a part of Little Rock that's in need of a new grocery store.

Arkansas Business has been reporting word on the pending deal since last year, when it first heard that Wal-Mart was scouting sites for its Neighborhood Market stores.

LITTLE ROCK — The Pulaski County prosecutor’s office said Thursday it will not take action on a criminal complaint alleging that the Pulaski County Special School District failed to comply with requests for documents sought under the state Freedom of Information Act.

Dennis Byrd, chief of the Arkansas News Bureau and publisher of four Pulaski County newspapers, filed the complaint June 15, alleging that Superintendent Charles Hopson did not comply with a May 2 FOI request for text messages sent and received by Hopson’s cell phone during a four-month period.
