A once vacant strip shopping center in Point Place has new life.
Lighthouse Landing is now open for business across from Cullen Park on North Summit Street.
Inside, you'll find a variety of artwork, crafts and antiques.
There's room for 250 vendor spaces.
There's also a coffee shop, deli and bakery.
Shoppers say Lighthouse Landing is worth the visit.
"Oh, if they want something unusual, it would be good. Good for gifts," said Elsie Schlachter.
Outside in the back, there are 21 spaces for a community garden.
On Thursdays and Sundays beginning this week, there will be a Farmers Market.
"The variety. They have an awful lot of different things you don't find everyplace else," said shopper Ruth Schnapp.
Lighthouse Landing is owned and operated by DK Treasures.
They're gung ho for Point Place and wanted to bring new business to the community.
"The actual area had been abandoned for several years and this was purchased out of the Lucas County Land Bank last year. They put a couple hundred thousand dollars into this building and renovated it and now we're here," said co-owner Debbie Speegle.
Two other businesses separate from Lighthouse Landing will occupy space in the same strip.
Ace Hardware is coming.
Already here is True Vintage Fashion, offering high end women's clothing designed between 1950 and 1990.
"I opened it because I live in Point Place and it will bring people in," said store owner Connie Topor.
The strip is expected to be 100 percent occupied by July 1.
