5 retailers coming to Dayton


Several new retailers will add store locations in the Miami Valley in 2017, which could be a local indication that retail sales will increase this year.

The National Retail Federation released its economic forecast for 2017, projecting that retail industry sales will grow between 3.7 and 4.2 percent compared to 2016. Online and other non-store sales, which are included in the overall number, are expected to increase between 8 and 12 percent.

Here are five retailers making their way to the Miami Valley in 2017:

• New Elder-Beerman shops opening in Dayton

Elder-Beerman will be opening four new in-store “Close to Home” shops in Dayton that will feature products from local makers and artists. The initiative launched in 45 stores in 2016, and will expand to Elder-Beerman locations at the Dayton Mall, Kettering Towne Center, Northpark Center in Huber Heights and the Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek in March.
