The Village at Pine has a variety of stores—is something missing?
A storefront in the Village at Pine has opened up and we're wondering what you think should go there. Planet Pittsburgh was the former tenant, but now the space is empty.

Bank will employ five full-time and one part-time employee.
First Niagara Bank will open its new full-service Wexford branch Tuesday at the Village at Pine. To celebrate, the bank invites the public to a Family Day from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 9, that includes appearances by Iceburgh, the Pittsburgh Penguins mascot, and Giggles the Clown. Refreshments will be provided. Asked why First Niagara chose the Wexford location, Branch Manager Arthur T. Clinger said they chose it for a couple of reasons. "First, it is simply an absolutely beautiful area. It also helps fill a gap in our footprint," Clinger said. "We have branches in Richland, North Hills, Cranberry and Ingomar, to name a few, and we were missing an opportunity to serve customers here," he added. The full-service branch offers …

After knitting helps her family in the days after the death of her son, Carolyn McKeating opens the store that sells yarn, fabric and unique gifts in the Village at Pine.
When Carolyn McKeating tells the story behind the Wexford Dry Goods store, it is a tale of incredible grief and healing. "This store is because of Dan's death," she said, referring to her 13-year-old son, who died in 2006 in a lawn tractor accident at their Pine Township home. To McKeating, the store is about the healing that comes with making things. After Dan died, she picked up her knitting needles that had been idle for 25 years. And that is when her seven grieving children started talking, she said. "Whenever I got out the knitting, it facilitated the conversation," she said. "It was such a sad time, so packed with emotion. Somehow it made it easier to talk. It helped them to be able to talk about how they were feeling a little more…

We found the perfect thing for the Twinkle Toes on your list.
We don't know any little girls who don't want to dance around on their toes while wearing something pink and floaty. Heck, even we like to do that every now and again. Let's see: pink, floaty and tippy-toed? Look up those words in Webster's and you get ballerina, and in order to be a ballerina you must have a tutu. We found ballerina skirts at All That Jazz in the Village at Pine in Wexford. The little dancer in your life will be delighted, and so will her mom. These tutus (or is that tuti) are like tulle doughnuts with an elastic center, so they can slip right on and off. They come in several colors and sell for about $20. They are for small girls, up to about age 10. Sadly, that excludes us, but they are pretty enough that we would …

Visions of sugar plums might not dance in your head as you walk into Bartram House Bakery, but just give it a moment. One look at the delectable bakery case and you might have pumpkin cheesecake, red velvet cake, Russian tea cookies, pecan pie and lady locks dancing into a box for you to take with you to an office party or your home.
