But Aveda salon and Spin Neapolitan Pizza no longer plan to open in the center.
Aveda officials couldn’t be reached for comment.
Spin founding partner Gail Lozoff is retiring on July 1 and new partners are coming on board, said founding partner Edwin Brownell. He said Spin had a lease for Liberty Commons, but the developer missed the “deliver by date,” which allowed Spin to drop their plans so the new partners could have more input on future expansion.
According to Legacy, Gordmans also plans to close its Liberty Commons store later this month as part of a national bankruptcy, but Legacy is in talks with a possible tenant for the 44,867-square-foot space.
