Furnishing Crossroads Center

Look for the local, family-owned Logan Furniture to open in a new location at the end of this month.

Logan, which closed at the Rochester Market Square home center on July 10, is setting up a new furniture showroom in the Crossroads Shopping Center. The store is moving into the space left vacant by Tuesday Morning, between Hancock Fabrics and Sun Place Tanning.

Tuesday Morning moved into the TJ Maxx & More Plaza.

"We feel great about this move. We think it will really give us the visibility we are looking for along with more space," says Logan Furniture General Manager Matt Logan.

While he plans to add new brands to his selection in the new 6,600-square-foot showroom, Logan stresses that his store is keeping its philosophy of selling only U.S.-made furniture.

"In fact, 90 percent of what we sell is made less than 300 miles away," he says. "This is a very green way of doing business, because it eliminates so much transportation."

Having lower shipping costs means the furniture can be priced competitively, as the consumer pays mainly for manufacturing and quality materials, Logan says.

Though the store will be in a new location, it will still offer free shipping.

Logan Furniture's move means Crossroads Shopping Center is full of tenants.
Blair Meek and Randy Scott of the Professional Management Group handle the center's leasing.

So TJ Maxx is gone...?

Tuesday morning moved to the TJ Maxx plaza, not into TJ Maxx

no, Tuesday Morning moved into TJ Maxx plaza, that's what the complex is called.

TJ Maxx & More Plaza is what the name of that center was changed to after the Barclay Square movie theater was closed and torn down.

Wow, the exodus from Rochester Market Square continues. First Audio/Video Planners and AFM Countertops, now Logan Furniture, I wonder who's next?

Thanks for the clarification for me, guys...:)

Tuesday Morning moving back to the plaza it started in. Now if I remember correctly, Barcley Square was renamed TJ Maxx plaza long before the theatre closed. I believe it was renamed shortly after it was fully turned into a strip mall back in the mid '90's. Jeff, any clarification on this little tidbit?

Good question, Storm.

I'm having trouble coming up with a definitive answer.

I've found references to T.J. Maxx Plaza in 2004 and Barclay Square in the 1980s.

Obviously, it changed somewhere in between.

I think the theaters came down in 2004 or so.

I got here in 1999 and I thought it was called Barclay then, but that may have just been people calling it by its old name.

Any answers out there?
