-- Earlier this week I wrote about Chipotle Mexican Grill filing a building permit to put in a restaurant in a portion of the former movie theater at Bellis Fair. After going to press I did hear back from a Chipotle spokeswoman who said the plan is to have the restaurant open sometime in the third quarter of 2014.

-- The clothing and shoe store Journeys will be opening in a new spot next week at Bellis Fair, a couple of doors down from current space, next to Bath & Body Works.

-- A state liquor license application was filed to sell beer/wine at 6000 Portal Way, under the business name Portal Way Station. Applicants are Rajvinder and Lakhwinder Malhi.

-- Skagit State Bank has filed a tenant improvement building application to do some remodeling of the space at 120 E. Holly St. to put in a new branch office. It’s in the former Union Bank space, next to Starbucks.

-- Building permits were approved for Hilton to build a 106-unit, four-story extended stay hotel at 805 Home Lane, near the new Marriott SpringHill Suites on Northwest Avenue.

-- Bellingham’s Jalapenos Mexican Restaurant is doing a different take on the wine dinners, offering its first-ever tequila dinner on Thursday, March 6 at its Barkley Village location.
