Gabriel Brothers, Inc. leases 55,000 square foot retail space in Findlay, OH to open new Gabe’s retail store

Morgantown, WV, Wednesday, May 7, 2014 – Gabriel Brothers, Inc., a fashion retailer and first choice destination for savvy shoppers, has officially announced a new Gabe’s store location in Findlay, OH. Scheduled to open summer 2014, this location will mark the company’s 16th store in Ohio, including a successful launch in Toledo in November 2013.  The new Findlay location is one of four new stores planned to open this July, including a recently announced location in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  This will bring Gabe’s total store count to 43, which reflects the addition of 7 new locations since last fall. 

Gabe’s new space is part of the Eastown Plaza Shopping Center, owned by the Isaac Property Company, and is centrally located on Tiffin Avenue, Findlay’s main retail corridor, across from the Findlay Mall.

“We are excited to join the Findlay community,” said Ken Seipel, CEO, Gabriel Brothers, Inc. “We already have a strong presence in Ohio, so we know the market and appreciate the customer quite well.  Findlay is a vibrant center that boasts a healthy economy and strong employment base and we are honored to have an opportunity to be a part of that, by expanding the Gabe’s tradition of bringing great styles and famous brands to the community at up to 70 per cent off department store prices.  This new location will also allow us to serve customers from the surrounding area and offer access to a broad assortment of quality name brand apparel, accessories and home goods for the entire family – all at an incredible value.” 

“Gabe’s new location is the best that Findlay has to offer for a retailer,” said Charles (Butch) Isaac, President of the Isaac Property Company.  “As a third-generation family business, we have been a part of the local area for over 100 years and we are committed to making a positive impact on every community we’re in.
