Here are some odds and ends from the world of Fredericksburg-area business over the past week.

Fredericksburg's Department of Economic Development and Tourism is holding a meeting Nov. 5 to discuss the Princess Anne Street corridor. The meeting will start at 8 a.m. at the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce's office at 2300 Fall Hill Ave., Suite 240.

A third Fredericksburg-area location for Dr. Nather Ansari's Primary & Urgent Care is opening Sunday. Wack General Contractor built the 8,000-square-foot facility in front of the Walmart on Southpoint Parkway in Spotsylvania County. The business plans an open house for area doctors and professionals from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, and another open house for the general public the same times Saturday.
