New Tenant For Former Joppa Road Giant

The vacancy in Joppa Heights shopping center will be filled by a Savers, Inc. store.

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 back in February—back then readers suggested everything from a Trader Joe's to a family fun center for the location.

What do you think about the new store moving into the shopping center? Does it fit with your ideas about the kinds of businesses the community needs? Will you shop there? Let us know your thoughts! Tell us in the comments.

Kohls does sound like a nice alternative.

Lance Beasman - have you tried The Fresh Market - across the street from the Towsontown Mall ? TFM is not as large as a Whole Foods but it is a very nice alternative. Stop in there on Saturdays for tastings.

Savers is awesome - been to them up north. Psyched!

the one thing Savers does that kind of drives me nuts is putting out racks of new, Savers-tagged halloween costumes and accessories in the fall- an entire department in most locations! this is a thrift store after all. why compete with other outfits such as Halloween Adventure and Target? (it's just enough bearable when Goodwill of the Chesapeake often has Target discontinued merchandise on the shelves) personally, i'm more thrilled about the odd pieces that show up in thrifts and lend to much more one-of-a-kind costumes. just think of what potentially cooler items could be out on the floor in place of that pre-fab costume detritus!

I love thrift stores because they have tons of unique things. Also not to start an arguement but, if you would all pay attention you would know that the salvation army...or maybe its the goodwill closed down months ago. The other one that's still open is set to close in the summer. Also people saying parkville is to nice for a thrift store...that's not true I grew up in Belair Maryland which is waaayyyy nicer than parkville and they have some of the nicest thrift stores.
