2 New Businesses to Open at Upper Valley Mallby Matt Sanctis
Springfield, OH – Two local businesses will open in the Upper Valley Mall this spring, including a furniture store that will take over space formerly occupied by Elder Beerman.
Sheer Perfection, a new hair salon, is expected to open in a location near the mall’s front entrance near the food court on March 1, said Brenda LaBonte, the mall’s general manager. Unique Furnishings Plus, which will offer antique and hard-to-find furniture and other items, is expected to open on May 1 and will take over the former Elder Beerman store, according to LaBonte and the store’s owner.
The mall has seen several national retailers close locations at a time when the industry is undergoing major upheaval. In many cases, the mall has tried to replace those businesses with small, locally owned stores.
