According to their press materials, Tiff’s Treats is “famous for bringing hot, fresh-from-the-oven cookies and brownies to hungry treat lovers everywhere.” Clements said that this will be a new location for Tiff’s, and they will be on the first floor.
“They will be serving fresh cookies out of the space, as well as running three delivery trucks from here,” said Clements.
Shine, a full service hair salon, will be keeping their bungalow on 11th, according to Clements, and adding this space to their salon operations.
“It will be located on the second floor eastern endcap of the east building, so it will overlook the Heights Blvd. esplanade and the World War II Memorial,” he said. “It should have a beautiful tree house sort of feel, and we are very excited to have a Heights local signing up for space.” Other signed tenants include Dish Society and the Kolache Shoppe.
