It took a few weeks to get beyond demolition to actual foundation work but the pace of construction at Little Caesar’s on Turner McCall has certainly picked up. The store — at the former car wash next to Krystal — replaces the drive-up edition that was adjacent to the former Kmart off Hicks Drive. On the way, probably by year’s end, will be a completely new building with drive-through service similar to the Little Caesar’s in West Rome. The shop is part of the Quantum Restaurants group in Chattanooga.

What to watch for: How will this new home of Little Caesar’s compete with the East Rome location of Domino’s not even a block off TMB behind PetLand on O’Neill Street.

Redmond Urgent Care has extended the weekday clinic hours to serve patients between their two Rome locations.
  • The East Rome location on 1810 Turner McCall Blvd. next to Zaxby’s will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • The West Rome location on 601 Shorter Ave. next to Krystal will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • Both locations will still be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Both locations have on-site x-ray, in-house labs, licensed providers, and can treat most minor injuries and illnesses with visits typically lasting under an hour. Patients can also schedule their visit online through Redmond Urgent Care’s website, www.RedmondUrgent.com, to reduce waits and spend even less time in the waiting room.
