Rose & Remington, founded in Warren County by mother-daughter pair Dee Alexander and Kristen Ponchot, will open a new location at the Dayton Mall this fall.
The family business, which is operated by Nate Alexander, told the Dayton Daily News in 2019 that it had plans to quadruple its number of stores as it expands across the country.
“Dayton Mall is proud to welcome Rose & Remington to our mix of retail options,” said Dave Duebber, general manager at Dayton Mall. “In an effort to meet shopper demands, we continue to deliver a wide variety of retail, dining, entertainment and event options to keep shoppers engaged and returning often.”
The store will be located in a 5,501-square-foot space next to First Watch and Hand & Stone Massage & Facial Spa.
“Inside Rose & Remington guests can find a unique selection of empowering and affordable fashion with most dresses ranging from $30 to $65 and tops ranging from $20 to $45,” according to a Dayton Mall release. “In addition to this Dayton location, Rose & Remington will increase their footprint within other Washington Prime Group centers this year including Great Lakes Mall in Mentor, OH, Southern Park Mall in Boardman, OH, Grand Central Mall in Vienna, WV and The Mall at Johnson City in Johnson City, TN.”
Rose & Remington can also be found inside The Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek.
The company, named after Ponchat’s twin daughters, has more than 20 stores open in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. The company has sister brand stores that got their start aside Rose and Remington, including Burlap and Birch and Curve and Cloth. They also own Greene Country Market and Sammie and Link on Main Street in Lebanon.
Curve and Cloth is the same romantic, boho-chic style as Rose and Remington, but carries sizes XL through 3XL and Burlap and Birch carries the same luxury, affordable concept to home furnishing and decor with pictures, frames, pottery, kitchen supplies and bath products.
The family’s retail business started in Lebanon nearly a decade ago with Green Country Market, a modern general store and gift shop with a country focus.
Success in the expansion has come from hard work, sweat and tears, along with giving store managers flexibility to make each store its own, Alexander said. From there, they launched all the other branded stores that now adorn downtown Lebanon.
“I think it all comes back to our customer base and taking care of our customers…we’re a faith-based company so we just try to really lead by example,” Alexander told the Dayton Daily News in 2019.
As consumer shopping habits change, few retailers are expanding. But Dennis said the company is confident because of its quality customer service and revolving merchandise that create a fresh experience every time a customer visits.
“Our brands pair with women…at all stages of their life, and a common thread is that they enjoy luxury fashion at an affordable price,” she said.
