LIMA — Among many other changes and openings, dressbarn will hold its grand opening Saturday at Lima Mall.
The women’s fashion, jewelry, accessories and shoe store is locating in the space formerly occupied by Gap; the store opened April 26.
To celebrate, dressbarn will offer refreshments, giveaways and a prize drawing to win a $250 shopping spree Saturday.
“It’s an exciting year for new openings and announcements at Lima Mall,” said Theresa Morocco, director of mall marketing and business development at Lima Mall. “We’re pleased to welcome dressbarn to our growing list of specialty retailers.”
Dressbarn is one of two new retailers opening at Lima Mall that were announced earlier this year. Later this summer, The Shoe Dept. will open. Old Navy, which is moving next to Elder-Beerman, will debut its newly renovated store in early June.
Also, at the nearby Lima Center, Lane Bryant has opened. Ulta Beauty will open in mid- to late August; the store is under construction in the former movie theater in the plaza. Sally’s Beauty will also open next year in the outside plaza.
Lima Mall has been a community shopping destination and gathering place since 1965. It is owned by Simon Property Group, an S&P 100 company and the largest real estate company in the world.
