Up Front Plaza
Up Front Plaza is a strip mall located on the northeast corner of Washington Street and Front Avenue.
Jerry Harmon and Dr. Charles Volk developed the shopping center in 1995. The first tenant to open was Ed Foo Young Restaurant, which opened in February 1996. Despite reports of strong sales, the locally-owned franchised Chinese take-out diner shuttered the following year, on February 16th.
Repeat Performance was second to occupy Up Front Plaza, relocating from 402 E Bowen Avenue. As of 2019, its tenants include Plato’s Closet, Duffy’s Hockey & Sports, Americash, and an Army Recruiting Center. Previous notable entities have included Play It Again Sports (relocated in 2003) and Paper Warehouse (later Party Universe, then Party America, then Party World).
