A new Dollar Tree will open next to on Seal Beach Boulevard within a month.
And that’s just the beginning.
Seal Beach is undergoing a bit of a building boom, or renovating boom as the case may be. In the years since the recession brought construction to a halt, there have been few major building projects and businesses openings in town, but by the end of September, Seal Beach will have several new major retailers.
“As for Dollar Tree, I just signed off on their business license today,” Seal Beach Senior Planner, Jerry Olivera, said Friday. “They are starting to bring in some shelves and merchandise.”
Dollar Tree will likely be open within three weeks, and the new big box stores at the will open soon after, said Olivera.
“These days. That means September,” he said.
In the Old Town area, many have been wondering what will become of the recently closed Sofa U Love. An ear clinic has been given the green light by the California Coastal Commission to renovate the building and open Shohet Ear Associates.
“It’s been a while since we have had a lot going on in Seal Beach,” Olivera said. “I think it’s a good sign for the construction industry, the economy and Seal Beach.”
