Since Dollar Tree became the first retail store to open in the Eastlake Marketplace shopping center in January of 2020, more and more shopping and dining establishments are opening locations or announcing plans to do so.

Dutch Bros Coffee, Crumbl Cookies, Rack Room Shoes, Ross Dress for Less, Jersey Mike’s, and Five Below are just a handful of franchises that have recently opened their doors.
