+ Binjara Traders owner to add new store
Binjara Traders, which, after a fire in November, moved to 362C John Ringling Blvd., will move back to its former location at 327 John Ringling Blvd. within approximately two weeks. Owner Cleon Dixon will then open a new store, Sahara, at 362C John Ringling Blvd. Sahara will carry much of the same clothing and accessories that the store currently carries, but although Binjara Traders has mostly Asian and Indian apparel, Sahara will have a North African vibe. Call 388-3335.
