MOOSIC, Pa., Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lightstone Group, one of the largest private real estate owners in the country, announced today that two leases were recently signed, totaling 11,500 square feet, at the 195,000-square-foot Birney Mall in Moosic, Pa.

Dollar Tree signed on for 10,000 square feet at the center. The retailer inked a five-year lease with three five-year options to renew. A major renovation effort will be completed by both Landlord and Tenant prior to move in.

The Regis Corporation (d/b/a Holiday Hair) signed a 1,500 square-foot renewal for a four-year term.

Both lease signings came on the heels of a 31,000-square-foot lease renewal by Big Lots, a leading business-to-business exchange that provides top quality merchandise and below wholesale prices.

"We are thrilled to welcome Dollar Tree to the tenant mix at Birney Mall and to continue our relationship with Holiday Hair," said David Lichenstein, Chairman of the New York City-based Lightstone Group. "We believe Dollar Tree will be a great addition that will fuel more traffic to the center."

Located on 3409 Birney Avenue at the split of the southbound and northbound sections of Route 11, Birney mall is approximately two miles southwest of downtown Scranton, Pa.  Kmart, Big Lots, and Empire Beauty are among the other tenants. There is a covered mall way to shield customers from the elements while walking from store to store.  

"Dollar Tree is a great fit with the already-established retailers at Birney Mall," stated Jeffrey Dash, Vice President of Leasing for Lightstone Group. "This center benefits from a prime, easily accessible traffic controlled intersection and Dollar Tree is sure to find a customer base."
