Daybreak SoDa Row ready to go

(South Valley Journal) After several years of home and community building, seven retail shops will open Sept. 19 inside Daybreak’s SoDa Row Village Center at about 4500 West and 11400 South.

“I like the look of the shops and if I don’t have to drive in traffic and pass Bangerter Highway to get a few essentials or visit the Redbox, it will save me some time,” said Daybreak resident Curtis Moore.

The first businesses to open will include Black Diamond Gymnastics and Sports Center, San Gelato Café, Tio’s Mexican Restaurant, children’s boutique Oopsie Daisy, Classic Cleaners, Guy’s Barbershop and Zions Bank.

Business owners hope to provide a place for residents to come together and be a community.

“Historically, the center of many communities has been around a barbershop which not only offers a service but also a place to stay connected with neighborhoods – I hope to offer that at Daybreak,” said Guy Dumas, owner and barber of Guy’s Barbershop which will occupy 228 square feet with its one-chair shop.

Daybreak officials want to integrate local shops as a key part of the community.

“The SoDa Row Village Center businesses are locally owned and operated with owners who have a desire to not just operate a business but be part of a community,” said Scott Schwendiman, Kennecott Land commercial development manager.

The shops are set for a grand opening in conjunction with Daybreak’s first annual Triathlon on Sept. 19.

The village center is home to five buildings with a combined 68,000 square feet of leasable space. Future tenant announcements are expected in the coming weeks and months; 20,000 square feet of space is still available.
