GRAFTON — The Grafton business landscape is changing this winter, as several businesses are moving in.

Along Wisconsin Avenue, there are four locations where change is or has been happening. One is a business that sought a new location, but three more are new businesses coming into the village.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, 1805 Wisconsin Ave. The car rental business was previously in the town of Grafton on North Port Washington Road. According to information from the village, the business was looking for a more visible location.

The new site for the business is immediately north of the former Pick ‘n Save. The space was renovated, setting up the offices for the rental company and added an overhead garage door to the west side of the building for a car wash bay to maintain the business’s rental vehicles.

Westwood Dry Cleaners, in the Lumberyard 1505 development at 1505 Wisconsin Ave. While the owner of the Mequon Westwood Dry Cleaners confirmed it is his business that will open a location in Grafton, he declined giving any further comment.

Fiddleheads Coffee Roaster, 1505 Wisconsin Ave. Fiddlehead’s was the first business to announce it was moving into the Lumberyard 1505 development in downtown Grafton. The announcement was originally made in September; the business is expected to open in the coming months.

Information from the village indicates Fiddleheads is making progress toward opening. Fiddleheads President Mike Wroblewski said in September that Grafton will be the sixth Fiddleheads. He called Grafton, where he lives himself, “an exciting extension” for the Fiddleheads business.

WisconSkin Ink, Grafton’s first tattoo and body art parlor, is preparing to open this month at 1309 Wisconsin Ave. The site was formerly PJ Collectibles and Advanced Check Cashing.

Fritz Meyer, the proprietor of the soon-to-be tattoo parlor, said this week that the building is undergoing renovations. He said he is waiting for some approvals on the renovations — tattoo parlors are subject to state health department regulations — before moving toward opening. Meyer spent eight years working at a tattoo parlor in West Bend.
