Panda Express opens in Carthage

Panda Express, a fast casual Chinese restaurant, opened this week in Carthage.

The new restaurant is next to Taco Bell, across the street from Carthage High School, and construction crews had been working on the site for a few months.

The building is a 2,000-square foot restaurant with 42 seats and a drive-thru.

New downtown lunch option

Sunflower Mercantile, in downtown Carthage, has added a grill and is now serving lunch in addition to their ice cream counter.

The grill is open Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the menu starting with grilled cheese and tomato basil soup.

Fudge and ice cream

The Fudge & More Store in downtown Carthage has added a new ice cream counter to its store.

Patrons of the old Carthage Drug might find the counter looks familiar. That’s because it’s the same one.
