Coming soon to Toledo: Discount retailer HomeBuys, upscale restaurant Cooper’s Hawk

Discount home goods retailer HomeBuys is coming to Toledo, filling a long-vacant space at Talmadge Road and Monroe Street that previously housed The Andersons general store.

The Columbus-based company with locations around the state claims a “treasure-hunt atmosphere,” with always-changing items. It purchases closeout items from other retailers and manufacturers then sells them at a deep discount.

Joe Swolsky, part-owner of the building and surrounding 18-acre development called Talmadge Crossings, said the retailer plans to open the new location in October. HomeBuys did not respond to a request for more details.

The 4701 Talmadge Rd. location has stood mostly vacant since 2017 when The Andersons shuttered its retail locations. The store and surrounding property, across the street from Franklin Park Mall, was purchased for $5.2 million in 2018.

Across the parking lot from the future HomeBuys, construction is under way on an upscale restaurant and winery called Cooper’s Hawk. The chain — with locations around the country including several in Michigan and Ohio — plans to open its new Toledo restaurant in early 2022, said Jo-El Quinlan, senior vice president of development for the company.

Several other stores also recently moved into the Talmadge Crossings site: Panda Express, Great Clips, electronics repair firm uBreakiFix, and home design and remodeling company KSI Kitchen & Bath.

Mr. Swolsky said his development company is still seeking tenants for a combined 22,000 square feet of retail space facing both Talmadge and Monroe.

The developer initially planned to construct another building on the property, to house a Buddy’s Pizza and Mission BBQ. But both restaurant chains put their plans on hold due to pandemic-related business challenges, Mr. Swolsky said.
