Self-Walbrick: A new restaurant, auto shop and a move for a longtime locale

Lubbock will see business movement throughout the city in the next few weeks.

 

A new automotive chain recently opened, a restaurant will start serving this week and a local bookstore will move to another bookstores’ former location.

The Farmhouse Restaurant

The Farmhouse Restaurant, next to the recently opened Bahama Buck’s at 7718 Milwaukee Ave., will open at 6:30 a.m. Monday, according to its Facebook page.

The new breakfast and lunch eatery is planned to be open daily until early afternoon.

Pep Boys

The former Just Brakes location at 4417 S. Loop 289 is now Lubbock’s only Pep Boys automotive shop.

Pep Boys purchased the Just Brakes brand earlier this year, according to a news release from the company. Through the purchase, there are now 900 Pep Boy locations in the U.S.

Just Brakes was founded in Bryan, Texas, and had 134 stores at the time of the transaction.

Star Comics

After 40 years at 2014 34th St., the original Star Comics will move up the street to 3504 34th St., the former Hester’s Books location, after the beginning of the year, the store announced in a Facebook post last week.

“If you are in Lubbock, please take the time during the next few weeks to stop by and say goodbye,” the post reads. “Say goodbye to the place that helped build so much.

“Just remember, we are not going away. We look forward to newer, bigger, and greater things to launch us into the next chapter of Star Comics.”

Star Comics also has a location in downtown Lubbock, at 916 16th St.
