From a press release:

The 2022 recovery has created new opportunities for retail, and U.S. Properties Group, owners of The Shoppes at Montage Mountain in Moosic, benefited from some of those opportunities by bringing new leases to the shopping center and new experiences to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre marketplace.

Dave & Buster’s is set to begin construction of a nearly 20,000-square-foot new state-of-the-art building with its first restaurant and video arcade in the area. The entertainment king will bring food and a variety of entertainment options and games to the 50-mile area.

In addition, and also new to the area, will be the first Duck Donuts. Famous at the beach with over 100 locations, this sweet little gem brings made-to-order donuts with all kinds of toppings – plus coffee, espresso, breakfast sandwiches, and ice cream donut sundaes – to The Shoppes.

To round out the new additions will be a new 4,200-square-foot Mattress Warehouse.

“The addition of these businesses adds that key factor of active retail – representing and supporting the local community – and keeps the lively retail offerings that make The Shoppes at Montage Mountain the place to shop, dine, and entertain in the Moosic and surrounding areas,” said Tim Todaro, senior leasing associate for U.S. Properties Group.

With this announcement, the company is looking to attract more new businesses to the region.

“This is just another start of many good things to come – Moosic, Pennsylvania continues its growth, and The Shoppes at Montage Mountain will continue to be the premier place to shop. We encourage all retailers to check us out. We have so much to offer at U.S. Properties Group and work hard to make deals happen,” stated Gord Wiebe, managing director of USPG.

“We appreciate all our tenants and the important role businesses plays in helping to fuel the local economy and attract shoppers to our center. All these current additions are part of the backbone that keeps the brick-and-mortar retail world alive and vibrant.”

Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Coppell, Texas, Dave & Buster’s Entertainment, Inc., is the owner and operator of 145 venues in North America that combine entertainment and dining and offer customers the opportunity to “Eat Drink Play and Watch,” all in one location. Dave & Buster’s offers a full menu of entrées and appetizers, a complete selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and an extensive assortment of entertainment attractions centered around playing games and watching live sports and other televised events. Dave & Buster’s currently has stores in 40 states, Puerto Rico, and Canada.

Duck Donuts opened its first locations in 2007 in the beach resort towns of Duck and Kitty Hawk, North Carolina with the intention to create an oasis for vacationers to enjoy warm, delicious, made-to-order donuts. Headquartered in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, the company began franchising in 2013 and prides itself on sprinkling happiness to its guests through its unique in-store experience, exceptional guest service, and a “duckzillion” donut combinations. As one of the fastest-growing donut franchise companies, Duck Donuts has more than 100 locally owned and operated shops across 21 states and one international location in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The Shoppes at Montage Mountain (1035 Shoppes Blvd., Moosic) is Northeastern Pennsylvania’s first and only “lifestyle center” and is conveniently located between Scranton and Wilkes-Barre, just off I-81 at Exit 182. Amid inviting gathering spots, wide sidewalks, and convenient parking in close proximity to individual shops and eateries, they offer a unique range of premium shops and restaurants, such as Food & Fire BBQ and Taphouse, Versona, J. Crew Factory, Fine Wine & Good Spirits, Panera Bread, DSW Shoes, Starbucks, LongHorn Steakhouse, Christmas Tree Shops, Guitar Center, and more.
