Label $hopper headed to Tiffin Mall

Tiffin Mall is to get a new tenant this summer.

Judy Piurowski, director of stores for Peter Harris and Label $hopper, confirmed Wednesday that Label $hopper, which she said is similar to T.J. Maxx, will be located in the former church location within the mall.

The company has some work to do in the location but would like to open in early August, she said.

“We have famous labels for less,” she said.

The store sells women’s, juniors’, plus-size, men’s and young men’s clothing, shoes and some home dcor, she said.

Piurowski said the company has five Label $hopper stores in Ohio, has one opening in Bryan and is looking at more sites in Ohio. The Ohio stores are in Athens, Bellefontaine, Gallipolis, Georgetown and New Boston, according to the store’s website.

The five stores in Ohio are doing well, Piurowski said.

“We like Ohio,” she said.

The company is based in Albany, N.Y., and also has stores in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont and West Virginia.

Piurowski said Tiffin’s store is to have open interviews the week of July 15 and will be hiring a manager, assistant manager and cashiers during the two days of interviews. She said she expects the store to employ 10 to 12 people.

She said the store is going to give away three $100 shopping sprees during its grand opening.
