The Mall at Fairfield Commons is adding four new retailers in time for the holidays and announced the opening date of a restaurant that is in the midst of hiring 175 employees.
The new stores, according to Mall at Fairfield Commons spokeswoman Kristie Miller, include:
• HeadQuarters, a full-service barber shop, which opened Oct. 13. The shop is a long-term tenant that filled a 2,727-square-foot space that was previously unoccupied. It also operates a location in the Dayton Mall.
• “Go! Games Go! Toys,” which sells games and toys and which opened Oct. 15. The store is a seasonal tenant that took over 5,056 square feet of space that previously housed Body Central.
• Glow, which is scheduled to open Nov. 15 in a 1,829-square-foot space that was previously vacant. Glow is a seasonal tenant that will sell puzzle lights and other novelty gift items.
• Seabolt & Co., which offers bath, body and skin-care products crafted in Ohio. The shop is a long-term tenant that is scheduled to open Nov. 24 in the 1,567-square-foot space that previously housed Bend Active athletic wear. Seabolt & Co. also operates a store in Columbus.
The mall spokeswoman also said Chuy’s Tex-Mex will open on Nov. 10. Previous announcements by the restaurant’s owners had referenced a “mid-November” opening.
Chuy’s had previously announced it would hire 175 to staff the new restaurant. A spokeswoman for the Austin, texas-based chain on Tuesday confirmed the opening date and said hiring is still underway.
Chuy’s will open in a free-standing location that was once part of the mall but which was demolished and cleared last year to pave the way for as many as five restaurants.
BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse — which, like Chuy’s, also operates a location at the Austin Landing development in Miami Twp. — also has filed plans to open a restaurant at the Mall at Fairfield Commons. And mall officials have announced that a BRAVO! Cucina Italiana restaurant is moving into a newly constructed section that will be connected to the rest of the mall.
