Circleville Peebles will be converting into a Gordman’s store mid-summer according to a Peebles Representative. They will offer a more “TJ Max style shopping experience vs. what they do now. This is more likely to appeal to the younger crowds a representative of Peebles said, Gordman aims for a younger crowd, and she thinks it will be a favorite for the area. There isn’t a TJ-Max or Kohls like store in Circleville, so this should be a big hit with shoppers.
