Humford Equities has announced three new businesses are setting up operations in the Country Club Shopping Center and three others in the nearby Dallas Shopping Center.

The Country Club Shopping Center encompasses 60,000 square feet of space anchored by Thomas’ Family Market on Route 309 in Dallas Twp. With the three new additions, the shopping center is fully leased.

The Dragon City II Chinese restaurant opened three weeks ago at 40 Country Club Shopping Center. Occupying 1,500 square feet of space, the business is owned by Bin Chen and his wife Qiu Xu, who also own the Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant in the Midway Shopping Center, Wyoming.

Anytime Fitness franchisee Steve Sherwood confirmed that he has signed a lease for a 4,500 square-foot space and plans to build a gym in the Country Club Shopping Center. Construction is expected to start immediately. The target date for the club’s grand opening is September.

High Energy Fitness & Karate is expected to open on or around July 1 in 1,880 square feet of space in the Country Club Shopping Center. The owner is John Filer, Sr., who also owns High Energy Fitness & Karate at 112-B River St., Tunkhannock.

Outrageous shopping and retail store and the Ellesse Boutique recently opened at 52 Dallas Shopping Center, between Finn’s Barber Shop and Tomasino’s Original Italian Pizza.

Founded by the brother and sister team of Paul M. Nardone and Maria Yourchision, Outrageous is a locally owned business that offers jewelry, gifts and accessories. Previously located in Scranton, Dallas and Wilkes-Barre, Outrageous decided to “return home” by opening a new location in Dallas in April.

Ellesse Boutique shares space with Outrageous and also recently moved to Dallas from Wilkes-Barre. According to owner Lisa Kohut, Ellesse Boutique is a locally owned and operated boutique specializing in designer clothes and accessories.

Jill Liuzzo has opened Body Contouring by Jill at 28 Dallas Shopping Center. The spa-like salon features the Strawberry & Cream Laser, a non-invasive cold laser that melts fat from within the cells, without destroying the cell or surrounding areas.
