"We are excited to welcome this new tenant the our center and to the community," said Jaimie Niemczura, Real Estate Manager for American Diversified Development which owns the Newport Plaza and Newport Shopping Center. "We believe this will be a great addition to the tenant mix and bring additional traffic to our existing tenants."
Arcade Legacy will be Baker's third location, with locations at Cincinnati Mills Mall and Northside. He opened his first location in Cincinnati Mills Mall in 2009 with console games and arcade games. He refurbished some of the games himself.
The Northside location, located on Spring Grove Avenue, is a full service bar, however the Newport location will not serve alcohol.
Arcade Legacy is shooting for a grand opening date in September or October of this year.
Arcade Legacy joins fellow Newport Shopping Center tenants such as Ace Hardware, Beef O'Brady's and Defender Direct.
