Two brothers, Dr. Stephen and Dr. Andrew Mitchell, opened Mitchell Eye Care, located at 450 Hwy W. Suite D., in Starkville and will host a grand opening Tuesday.  


Both brothers are Mississippi State University alumni, originally from Louisville, who gravitated to Starkville to start their own practice, which officially opened in June. Both brothers majored in biological sciences at MSU and attended Memphis Southern College of Optometry in Tennessee.  


The grand opening will be an all-day, come-and-go affair, offering future and current patients opportunities to meet with both doctors and see the facility. During the event, Mitchell Eye Care will have refreshments and a door prize giveaway including an echo dot, coach sunglasses, an espresso machine, local gift cards and more.  


The family owned and operated clinic offers eye exams and treatments for all ages, including an opening special for a $95 patient eye exam. The office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.  


Mitchell Eye Care currently has three employees, excluding the eye doctors, but looks to add more employees in the future.  


Starkville also added a business that has a unique take on self-care in Tough Guys Haircuts. 


The shop, located at 1085 Stark Road, Suite 102, held its grand opening in mid-July. Owner Alicia Harwell wanted to add a new style to the classic barbershop concept, offering a free beer or soda with a haircut. 


Numerous discounts are available for Mississippi State University faculty, students and military service men or women with proper identification. Although Tough Guys is geared toward men, haircuts are available for both men and women. The facility has televisions airing sports channels and games, even offering music and Netflix options. 


Tough Guys is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Customers can make appointments, but the majority of haircuts are walk-ins.  


Starkville's second Super Sonic Carwash, located at 500 Hwy. 12, opened in early July. The carwash occupies the former Denny's site which closed last year. It is open Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. 


Prices range from a $7 basic wash to an "xtra-care package" for $20. A representative from Super Sonic Car Wash said there is a 50-percent off special on all car washes at the new location for a limited time.  


In Columbus, a Main Street restaurant expected to sell, will stay open. Earlier in July, Scott and Gon Carley, owners of Thai by Thai, said they were searching for potential buyers for the restaurant downtown. However, since announces their goals to sell, Gon Carley said the restaurant has been overwhelmed by customers. 


Previously, Scott Carley said a buyer in Florida was interested in the restaurant, but Thai by Thai will remain with the Carley's and continue business as usual.
