Two new businesses have opened their doors to Hutto customers or announced their intention to open in the not-too-distant-future.

Academy Sports + Outdoors

A new Academy Sports + Outdoors store is set to open at 250 Alliance Blvd., Hutto, in mid-November.

The 50,000-square-foot facility located within Townwest Commons will be the national sports retailer's first-ever "green build," featuring solar panels on the roof to supplement the store's energy during the day.

The Townwest Commons will see Academy as its latest addition, alongside Lowe’s Home Improvement, Walgreens and Hutto YMCA. Additionally, EVO Entertainment Group has plans to add a movie theater, bowling and gaming complex to the shopping center.

B. Sweet Lash Wax Med-Spa

B. Sweet Lash Wax and Med-Spa held its grand opening Aug. 25 for its second location at 111 Co-op Blvd., Hutto, in the city's Co-Op District Community Center.

The beauty center offers a variety of aesthetic services, including lash, Botox, wax and laser treatments. The business's Pflugerville location has been open since 2017.
