CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Two new tenants are opening for business at Southgate Shopping Center next month and negotiations are under way to fill three other vacancies soon, said Joe Deerin Jr., president of LMS Commercial Real Estate, a Lancaster, Pa., firm contracted last month to do the leasing at Southgate.
Rent-A-Vision, a rent-to-own business that recently opened a store on Main Street in Waynesboro, Pa., and Pets Are Us, are scheduled to open Nov. 1, Deerin said.
"It's a step in the right direction," he said. "We're actively and aggressively contacting other retailers to fill Southgate."
Though he would not reveal the names of the other potential businesses, Deerin said a health club operator, a national video chain and a large retail company have shown interest in the mall in downtown Chambersburg.
