Another Solon shopping center is getting a facelift.
Marc's on SOM Center Road has submitted plans to expand and improve the outside and inside of its store, according to planning documents.
Marc's hopes to build a 4,400-square-foot addition onto the back of the store and also add on another 8,300 square feet by expanding into the Pet Supplies Plus location next door.
And Pet Supplies Plus is moving to the under-development Solon Village at the corner of SOM Center and Aurora roads, reports the Solon Times.
The Marc's proposal will be before the planning commission on Aug. 28.
Plans call for refacing the Marc's building with thin brick and cast stone with accents. The architect plans to bring material samples to the planning meeting.
No changes will be made to the Sears Grand store in the plaza. The improvement at Marc's will help blend the shopping plaza better with the look of Sears, according to a letter submitted to the city by the architect.
Marc's has been busy updating the look of many of their stores in the Cleveland area.
Solon has been on a tear with updating its shopping plazas this year. Solon Village, featuring a new Market District Giant Eagle, is under swift construction. Solon Square will see some changes too, including the addition of Earth Fare.
Rehabbing the city's aging shopping plazas has been a major goal for city officials and a bone of contention for residents, who want better shopping options.
