The Beavercreek Furniture Fair filling the vacant Toys “R” Us store will open Nov. 16, just ahead of the holiday shopping season.

The 60,000 square-foot store has been in the works for months. The Dayton Daily News first reported the second area location in June when county records showed a renovation cost of $3.3 million.

“It’s always great to fill those large, empty, big-box tenant spaces that sometimes can be pretty difficult to fill,” said Sandra Pereira, associate city planner of Beavercreek. “We’ve been really lucky in being able to get stores like Furniture Fair…and Ross to go into those spaces that have been sitting open for some time now.”

Ross Dress For Less, a discount retailer opened earlier this year down the street from upcoming Furniture Fair. Resale womens apparel store Clothes Mentor also opened in June in that area.
