A new business is moving into the former Colony restaurant location on Cochran Road in Scott.
A new business is moving into the former Colony restaurant location on Cochran Road, but what exactly it will be isn’t clear. A place called Club Colony is moving into the location, although it’s not know when the establishment will open and what it will offer.
