Elderberry's, the smoothie and sandwich wrap chain, is moving its Salem store into a space owned by Roanoke College next month.
The move, from a cramped 300-square-foot space at 304 E. Main St. to one more than five times larger less than a block away on College Avenue, will allow the Salem location to offer the full range of smoothies, wraps and soups available at the chain's Roanoke County shop, said owner Diane Elder.
The new space will offer more indoor seating than the current spot, which opened in 2009, including a conference room for use by the public, Elder said. Eventually it will have more outdoor seating, too.
The space was last used by the college in 2009 for classrooms while the Lucas Hall academic building was being renovated.
College spokeswoman Teresa Gereaux said terms of the restaurant's lease on the space are still being worked out. Elderberry's will be the second private retailer operating on college property. Cups coffee shop has a location inside the college library on High Street.
Elder expects to have the new location open before classes start Aug. 28.
