What kind of businesses would you like to see in Birch Bay Square?
Birch Bay Square owners are seeking comments on what kinds of stores local residents would like to see in the future.
Co-owner Levi Ware said the mall is currently 40 percent occupied but he expects those vacant spaces to fill up quickly especially after The Market, a 25,000-square foot grocery store, opens in May.
In addition to a newly opened 2,200-square foot nail salon, customers can expect a 1,500-square foot Boulevard Hair Studio and a 1,800-square foot Woods Coffee, both in late May, and a Team USA Olympic games memorabilia store, in December. He added that he and co-owner Jared Ware are having conversations with Party America, a corporate party supply store.
“We’re trying to have a community dialogue so people can be involved with the center,” Ware said, speaking to Birch Bay chamber of commerce members during their regular meeting Tuesday.
