New hair salon, reopened thrift shop update the Crossroads

There’s a new spot to get your hair done since America Hair Design opened at the beginning of May at 1011 University Blvd E, #101. This is owner Miriam Lemus’s third salon in the area – her others are at Piney Branch Road and Flower Avenue, and 7984 New Hampshire Ave. just north of the Crossroads. The new shop occupies a renovated building. Lemus’s business is a family affair: She’ll be assisted by her son Danny Santa-Cruz.

Also look for a newly re-opened favorite, when the Salvation Army Thrift Store starts up again. After being shuttered for nearly two years, this popular stop for bargain hunters and browsers is scheduled to re-open June 13 at 7505 New Hampshire Ave. The store, which sports a complete facelift, anchors the shopping center there, with neighboring businesses Ram’s Fast Tax Service, Claudette’s Braiding Gallery and Liberty State Insurance.

Also in April, A Plus Medical relocated to 7505 New Hampshire Ave., #314-B. Crown Insurance Agency relocated from 1017 University Blvd #201, to 1015 University Blvd., #201. And IHOP got new siding and copper wrap on the exterior and has nearly finished interior renovations.
