They're subdividing the space, with Toppers Pizza taking over about 1,800 square feet in the front part of the building. Movies Etc. and Malibu Tan will be in the back half. Pickard says they're hoping to start serving pizzas by early November.

There's are Toppers Pizza franchises in Mankato, Rochester, Winona, and in several Twin Cities area locations.

Meanwhile, the space that used to be the home of Bo Didley's in that same complex is still vacant. But, Pickard says he's got a tentative agreement with another business, and he's hoping to make that announcement soon.
