PARMA, OH (WOIO) - On October 2, the Shoppes at Parma announced that SportsClips Haircuts, H&R Block and GNC will join the existing lineup of retailers in the strip center that is anchored by Marc's grocery.
The exterior of the strip mall received several upgrades this summer. Some of the improvements include removing the old awning system, adding new brick features, replacing all store front windows, pouring new side sidewalks, adding storefront awnings and signage.
"Renovations to the existing strip center continue to attract interest from new retailers," said Robyn Hays, Senior Leasing Director at The Shoppes at Parma. "This is an exciting time for The Shoppes at Parma and the community. The addition of these retailers will add convenience and variety for the shopper."
SportClips which anticipates opening in early 2015, is the latest of the franchise's more than 1,200 locations across the country.
"SportClips is very excited to be part of the rebirth of the Shoppes at Parma" said Raj Sandhu, Owner/Team Leader for SportClips Haircuts. "SportClips offers clients the expertise of well–trained stylists in a fun, casual environment where they can enjoy watching sports on TV during their haircut. We're looking forward to introducing clients to our services and distinctive haircut experience".
H&R Block, who has previously opened an office at The Shoppes at Parma during tax season, will be opening a permanent location. The store is expected to open in November of this year.
"Join us for our re-grand opening coming soon in our new permanent location," said Dan Norman, H&R Block District Manager Cleveland West.
GNC, an existing tenant of the mall, will relocate their store to the strip center.
Construction of the West portion of the strip center will continue throughout this year. Plans are to begin working on the East portion of the strip center from Chuck E' Cheese to Huntington Bank starting in the spring of 2015.
"The strip center is only the beginning of what will be the completed Shoppes at Parma project. As Mayor, it is exciting to watch the continuous progress as it happens along both the strip and the mall property," said City of Parma Mayor Timothy DeGeeter.
