Good Feet, World of Beers open in Carrollwood

CARROLLWOOD — Sufferers of fallen arches, hammertoes and bunions have a new option in northwest Hillsborough County.

In late April, Good Feet opened its newest store at 12915 N Dale Mabry Highway. The store offers arch supports, cushions, lotions and other products designed to help people with foot problems, as well as back, hip, knee and leg pain, store manager Tony Jones said.

Jones, who formerly worked at Good Feet's Brandon location, said he had customers come to the Brandon store from as far as Lutz, New Tampa and Carrollwood. Jones, who once worked as a Realtor, figured that Carrollwood could easily support a Good Feet store. He persuaded the franchise owner, Mark Carlebach, to consider the area.

"I sold a couple of houses out here, and I told him it would be a good place for a store," Jones said. "And a lot of customers in the Brandon store were saying they were from the Lutz area, saying they need a store closer to their homes."

Though it's been barely a month, Jones said they are doing a great business.

"We've had the biggest opening of any store so far," Jones said.

A place to sample some high-end brews

CARROLLWOOD — Patrons looking for a quiet place to leisurely sample rare, flavorful beers from all over the world need look no further, according to the owners of a beer franchise set to open in Carrollwood.

World of Beers is scheduled to open its fifth franchise early next week in Carrollwood Village Shops, 12904 N Dale Mabry Highway. Ben Novello, one of the principals of World of Beers franchising, said the establishment offers a range of beers for the discriminating customer.

"For a fan of beer, this is a wonderful place," he said. "These are quite flavorful beers, not beers that you can throw down so quickly. Personally, I want a beer that I can enjoy. I'm someone that wants to sip and savor a beer."

Novello promises that the 2,400-square-foot store with outdoor patio is not going to be a place customers will want to leave soon after they arrive. In fact, the owners want customers to be comfortable and enjoy the nice view offered in the courtyard at Carrollwood Village Shops.

"This one's going to take advantage of the Carrollwood Village Shops' esplanade and the patio fountain," he said. "It's a little unique in that you can dine or enjoy a great beer without looking at the bumper of a car. … You can enjoy a real sunset while dining, which you normally can't find in North Tampa."

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from six majority-Muslim countries is set to be replaced as soon as this weekend with more targeted restrictions on visits to the United States that would vary by country, the New York Times reports, citing officials familiar with the plans.

    President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from six majority-Muslim countries is set to be replaced as soon as this weekend with more targeted restrictions on visits to the United States that would vary by country, officials familiar with the plans said Friday. The new restrictions, aimed at preventing security threats from entering the United States, could go into effect Sunday after the conclusion of a 90-day policy review undertaken as part of the administration's original travel ban. Though the restrictions would differ for each country, people living in the targeted nations could be prevented from traveling to the United States or could face increased scrutiny as they seek to obtain a visa.

    The University of Florida football program is valued in a new study at $682 million, making it the most valuable university team in the state but still worth far less than several college programs topping $1 billion. Four years ago, UF's program was valued at just under $600 million.
