One business closing

The mall also is scheduled to have at least one store closing in the near future. Bella Divine, which offers prom dresses and wedding gowns, is set to shut down March 31 after a decade there, James Paek, the store’s manager, said Monday.

The company behind the store first opened a similar store, Cinderella, at the Dayton Mall, in 2009, Paek said. It opened at the 8,000-square-foot location Fairfield Commons storefront in 2014, but opted to move in February to a 20,000-square-foot location in Butler County’s Liberty Center.

The Beavercreek location is offering up to 50% off of selected items $99 or less.

The Mall at Fairfield Commons, which opened in 1993 at 2727 Fairfield Commons Blvd., includes about 130 tenants. It recently welcomed anime-themed restaurant Izakaya, Tokyo Grill Sushi & Hibachi Buffet, IMME & More and Game Over: Pop Culture Edition.
