The retailer already has two locations in the Cincinnati area and another two in the Columbus area.

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.”
