The transformation of the Riverlands district took a small step forward on Monday when Red Deer’s municipal planning commission gave a green light to a small shop that will sell coffee, books and art. Rhonda Charchun applied to the city for approval to open the store at D8, 5579 47th St. She plans to call her business The Cup Stops Here, with its other products possibly to include sandwiches and salads. The Riverlands district is being redeveloped as a pedestrian-friendly area with a mix of residential and commercial uses. City manager Craig Curtis said Charchun’s proposed business is the kind of shop being sought for the area.
