William (Bill) Schlossman’s vision of a retail center was realized on August 2, 1972, when he and a team of local partners opened West Acres Shopping Center. Although our nearly one million square foot space makes us seem anything but small, West Acres has always been a locally owned and operated small business! Today, West Acres continues to be run by Bill’s son, Brad, and a team of around 60 employees.
As the premiere shopping destination for our region, we are proud to also be home to over 30+ locally owned or managed small businesses that we work to foster and support within our walls.
Now more than ever it’s important to support our small businesses and shop local, that’s why this holiday season, we are putting an extra spotlight on those businesses you can support during this time. To learn more about them and their stories, stay tuned to our social channels (Instagram & Facebook) to enjoy features on these local stores and eateries and how you can provide them with essential business they need to remain successful.
