Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts opened on Friday.
Deer Creek Center stores will be opening this spring and summer. Michele Larkin, a catering manager with McAlister's Deli, said a lease for a Deer Creek spot is signed and they hope to open by July 1.

Maplewood Ward 1 alderman Shawn Faulkingham listed them on his Facebook page last month, and city manager Marty Corcoran recently confirmed the list.

Three out of four pieces of the Deer Creek Center redevelopment are in their final reading at tonight's meeting.
The Maplewood City Council needs to pass three pieces legislation for the Deer Creek Center redevelopment to happen, and all three are on the agenda for their final reading at tonight’s city council meeting. A law that would prohibit sexual orientation and gender identity into various sections of Maplewood law is on the agenda, but is noted to be tabled. A public hearing is scheduled on the Planned Unit Development that includes moving the Sunnen MetroLink parking lot from the west side of the tracks, near the Mini Cooper development, to the east side of the tracks, and just east of the station.

Mystic Valley, a new age metaphysical store, is moving to Manchester Road.
Mystic Valley, a store that started 25 years ago on Brentwood Boulevard, then moved to Deer Creek Center when the Venture store was new, is moving again. Its new spot is 7241 Manchester Road, the old Drum Headquarters location. It's across Manchester Road from Kakao Chocolate. The "new age metaphysical store," as co-owner Kristy Ponticello calls it, survived 19 years at Deer Creek. She said business was booming back when the Venture, Payless Shoes, and Colonel Days Levis Emporium were there. Her father, Vito Ponticello, started the store. He died in 2000; that's when Kristy Ponticello and her sisters, Dina and Traci took over. She credits the store's survival to lots of regular clients, and the fact that it's a specialty store without much…

The first of four large retail spaces have been leased to national brands.
Maplewood’s Deer Creek Center may still be developed, in spite of the TIF commission voting against using public funding for the development in January. Summit Development Group, a private company that owns the property, requested $8.5 million. It can still happen if five of the seven city council members vote for it, but that won’t happen until Summit signs more tenants. City manager Marty Corcoran said after last week's council meeting there are a total of 10 to 12 spaces to lease, and four of those are “decent sized,” which he said are in the range of 20,000 square feet. One of those bigger spaces is signed for, and two will sign soon, Corcoran said. If Summit has three of the four large spaces leased, Corcoran said the city will meet …

The city's redevelopment corporation agreed Tuesday to act quickly but thoroughly as the hotel project moves forward.
Members of the Brentwood Redevelopment Corporation committed Tuesday to be responsive and meet as needed as plans for a new Drury hotel unfold over the coming months. "This is, in reality, the last really major piece of property in Brentwood that is just screaming to be developed," said John Geppert, a resident and member of the organization, during the meeting at City Hall. "And I think we want to do this in the best possible fashion, and I communicated that to the Drury people. And I think that in order to do that, we have to keep in mind that when a city enters into a relationship like this, it's a partnership. And we need to respond quickly." While Drury Development Corporation had not requested any economic development tools as of …
