A planning official told this news organization that the store will open by the end of the month. An official opening day has not been set yet.
“It will definitely attract a lot of shoppers,” said associate city planner Sandra Pereira.
The former Kmart building, which has stood there for more than 40 years, has been deteriorating significantly in recent years. This will be the first At Home location in the Dayton area. The retailer already has two locations in the Cincinnati area and another two in the Columbus area.
It operates 136 stores in 33 states, and sells “home products to fit any budget or style — from sofas, dining sets, mattresses and patio furniture to lamps, pillows, kitchenware, rugs and more, plus seasonal décor that includes yard displays, lights and Christmas trees.”
At Home has opened 80 new stores in just four years, and plans to open 25 new stores in the 2018 fiscal year. The company has delivered revenue growth at a 20 percent compounded annual rate over the past four years, according to a company statement.
