Here are a few local business items of note while going through the latest Bellingham building permit filings:
-- A tenant improvement permit application was filed to put in a La Patissiere restaurant at 2430 James St., in the Sunnyland Square shopping center (home to Trader Joe's).
-- A permit was issued to put in a pet food production facility at 400 W. Orchard St. The tenant is called Alaska Natural Pet Food.
I also received a call from LifeTouch, which purchased Donnette Studios a year ago. The studio at 4165 Hannegan Road was closed earlier this year, but LifeTouch plans to remain in the Bellingham area and is looking for a space. For details about the company, which handles school pictures in this area, call 800-562-5195.
