A commercial vacancy in the Joppa Heights shopping center has a new tenant: Savers, Inc.
The new store will take over space left vacant when Giant moved out of the shopping center back in March 2007 and bring about 40 new jobs to the area, according to a statement from Fifth District Councilman David Marks announcing the new shop.
According to the company website, Savers is a thrift store whose "inventory comprises unique, quality used goods as well as new merchandise, including closeouts on great items not found at other thrift stores."
A shopping tour on the site shows that they offer men's, women's and children's clothing as well as housewares, collectibles and furniture.
Patch wrote about the former Giant supermarket site in the Visions for Vacancies column back in February—back then readers suggested everything from a Trader Joe's to a family fun center for the location.
