The retailer already has two locations in the Cincinnati area and another two in the Columbus area. It operates 136 stores in 33 states, and sells “home products to fit any budget or style — from sofas, dining sets, mattresses and patio furniture to lamps, pillows, kitchenware, rugs and more, plus seasonal décor that includes yard displays, lights and Christmas trees.”

The Beavercreek store will open in the former Kmart building, which has stood there for more than 40 years.

“It will definitely attract a lot of shoppers,” said associate city planner Sandra Pereira, in a previous interview with this news organization. “It will significantly improve that area.”
