Indoor playground entertainment brand coming to Dayton Mall

Nearly 10,000 square feet at Dayton Mall will soon be occupied by Kids Empire, “one of the fastest-growing indoor playground entertainment brands,” according to the mall’s owner, Spinoso Real Estate Group.

“Kids Empire offers giant playground areas that include floor-to-ceiling climbing walls, play structures, drop-in ball pits and more,” Spinoso said.

The space is located on the upper level of the mall near JC Penney in a space formerly used for storage, a Dayton Mall spokeswoman told this news outlet.

“We are excited for the new addition to the Dayton Mall community,” the spokeswoman said.

The new Miami Twp. location should be open by the end of the year, according to Shelby Pedroza, vice president of E&R Property Group, who is head of real estate for Kids Empire.

The Dayton Mall location is one of four Kids Empire locations planned for Ohio, Pedroza said.

Kids Empire has 70 locations across 17 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
