Although some businesses have been in the historic Fondren district for decades, new stores, offices and restaurants are constantly setting up shop. According to the Fondren Association of businesses, the Fondren district is bounded on the north by Northside Drive, on the south by Woodrow Wilson Avenue, on the east by Interstate 55 and on the west by the railroad tracks.
Here are a few of the most recent additions to welcome to the neighborhood, all opening since the last Zippity Doo Dah:
