3 New Retail Stores Open at Meridian Cool Springs
Clean Juice, Woodhouse Spa, and The Eastern Peak will round out our retail roster at Meridian, bringing the property to 100% leased. They will join the recently opened New Moon Yoga studio and fitness studio HOTWORX.
Clean Juice, slated for an early 2022 opening with 1,657 SF, comes from local residents Sean and Maylissa Ballance — their first Clean Juice franchise but the second to open in a Boyle property.
“We wanted to not only serve the community, but also build a community,” Sean Ballance said. “Our decision to open at Meridian was easy – it really picked us long before we picked it. In earlier parts of my career, I’d go on business trips where we’d stay at Meridian, and I’ve always been impressed with the development. It was a no-brainer to put down our roots here.”
Woodhouse at Meridian is expected to bring treatments beyond traditional spa offerings including antigravity chairs equipped with virtual reality gear, an infrared sauna and a plunge pool when it opens in March with 6,012 SF. This marks franchisee Kimberly Powell’s third Woodhouse locale, the others in South Carolina.
“I decided that I only wanted to open spas in cities that I was passionate about, and that was definitely the Nashville area,” Powell said. “We’re energized to return the Woodhouse brand to Franklin. It’s refreshing to have a partner like Boyle at Meridian who understands the value of a luxury spa in the development and wider community, where we can support all our patrons on their wellness journeys.”
The Eastern Peak is known for its Thai and sushi dishes that take on an American twist and combines a modern ambiance that is inspired by culture and art. The Meridian location is slated to open in the spring with 3,503 SF. This will be Eastern Peak’s sixth restaurant.
David Szemeredy, chief operating officer of The Eastern Peak at Meridian, said he decided to bring the business to this particular community because he always wanted to be in the Cool Springs area.
These new businesses join longtime Meridian tenants including Cajun Steamer, Tupelo Honey Café, Nutrishop, Peace Eyecare, Tony’s Eat & Drink, Meridian Dental Centre, Noodles & Company, Edward Jones, Fabulous Frocks Bridal, First Watch and more.
