Home decor store At Home has plans to open a store inside the vacant Elder-Beerman location in Huber Heights sometime in early 2019, a city councilman confirmed.
Councilman Richard Shaw said the store has submitted plans to the Huber Heights planning commission for the store at 8221 Old Troy Pike.
Shaw said he met with councilman Glenn Otto and property management company JLL on Aug. 31, the date Elder-Beerman’s parent company was court ordered to finish months-long liquidation sales after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February.It was also two days after the Huber Heights Elder-Beerman at shut its doors.
“I really didn’t want to see that facility sit there empty and go for a long time without being occupied,” Shaw said.
At Home will be leasing the property, Shaw said. The owner of the building is American Realty Capital, according to Montgomery County records.
