Peebles store to open in Saybrook Plaza

SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP — Peebles, a department store chain that specializes in bringing name brands to small and midsize towns, is coming to Ashtabula.

The new store will open in the Saybrook Plaza on Route 20, county officials confirmed Friday.

Vacant space has plagued portions of the plaza for several years, so township trustees are eager to see it filled.

Passersby may have noticed a new sign and other improvements in and around the plaza, raising residents’ suspicions that something is going to happen there, Township Trustee Bob Brobst said.

“We have heard (Peebles was coming) and it’s been rumored for a long time,” he said. “But lately, the rumblings are getting louder.”

It will be the first Peebles in Ashtabula County and the third Peebles in northeast Ohio. There is a Peebles in Madison Township in Lake County, and another in Chardon in Geauga County.

Peebles stores are part of Stage Stores Inc. of Houston, and the company opened 29 new stores last year. The stores operate under the Peebles, Bealls, Stage, Goody’s and Palais Royal names. They sell brand-name apparel, accessories, cosmetics and shoes.

Stage Stores Inc. boasts about 850 stores in 40 states. The company started in 1920.
