“Dear PoPville,

It looks like a new indoor plant store will be opening in Pleasant Plains on the corner of Euclid and Sherman. This space was previously City Corner Market. Signage for Cap and Stem went up this week and they seem to be making good progress on the interior, however, I wasn’t able to tune into on an opening date.

As an update, I walked past the store front again this morning and I think they may actually sell mushrooms? Not entirely clear…”
