We’re asking our readers what you want to see go into the former Cici's Pizza location in the Chartiers Valley Shopping Center after it closed months ago.
Cici’s Pizza at Chartiers Valley Shopping Center has been closed for months, so we’re asking our readers what you want to see go into the former restaurant’s location. The empty restaurant along highly-traveled Route 50 is just a few doors down from Dunham’s sporting goods store and the DMV. It would make a perfect spot for a new restaurant or shop. What does this area need that it doesn’t already have nearby? So, if you could see any business in this location, what would you like in the plaza? If not a restaurant, what else do you see here? Use your imagination and tell us in the comment section! Like the Chartiers Valley Patch Facebook page or sign up for our Daily E-mail Newsletter!

Collier police Chief Tom Devin said they are using a temporary company that can help with some emergency cases, but not day-to-day calls. “Now we’re scrambling, along with many other communities, to find someone to do the job. That makes it fairly tough,” Devin said. “Hopefully we won’t have any …

The popular gourmet cupcake shop in Bridgeville closed just four months after opening on Station Street.
A sign hanging from a window at Cupcakes N’at in Bridgeville tells an ironic tale: “Life is short… Eat more cupcakes.” Unfortunately, life was also short for the gourmet cupcake shop. The popular shop closed earlier this month, leaving regular patrons to wonder what happened. The shop opened in early March and sisters Tamie Godfrey of Scott Township and Billie Jo Giehll of Heidelberg whipped of tasty treats for their customers. The former owners could not be reached for comment on why the shop closed just four months after opening. The store quickly gained quite a following and enticed people with the sweet aromas coming from the shop on Station Street next to Sauce. Each of the cupcakes were named after popular Pittsburguese slogans, such…
