MEDFORD, Ore. — Regular visitors to The Village Medford Center may already be familiar with some of its five newest tenants, most of which opened their doors in July. But for those not "in the know," the owners of The Village are rolling out the proverbial red carpet for introductions.

Owners LBG Real Estate Companies (LBG) say that they will be finished with major renovations to the complex in August—including newly remodeled interiors at Tinseltown Theater (as well as the prospect of serving alcoholic beverages), the rebirth of the old International Fitness space as improved alter-ego "Village Fitness," and a host of brand new businesses:

Simply Sharpe Boutique (Simply Sharpe) is now open for business with plans for a formal grand opening soon, according to LBG. Previously as an online-only retailer, Simply Sharpe agreed to make Medford Center home for its first storefront. The boutique offers high-end women’s clothing and accessories including blouses, dresses, swim suits and more. The store is located north of the Tinseltown box office and across from the entrance to Village/International Fitness. Owner Rocky Sharpe, is a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in San Francisco and has worked in the industry her entire professional career.

Ella Lane Boutique (Ella Lane) is an online company that opened its first store in The Village on June 23rd. Ella Lane is an affordable women’s clothing boutique that prides itself on "unsurpassed customer service and high-quality goods made only in the USA," according to LBG. Founded in early 2017, owner, Ashley Lacer, has always had a passion for boutique clothing and fashion. With Ella Lane, Ashley made it her goal to provide fashion-forward, comfortable, yet affordable clothing options. Her ties to the military make supporting U.S.-based businesses very important. Ella Lane is located across from the Tinseltown box office and Cold Stone Creamery, just north of the Collaborative Theatre Project entrance.

Panache Dance Co. (Panache) is owned by Sydney Smedley who has been dancing for the past 20 years and teaching for eight. A Rogue Valley native, Sydney studied mostly jazz and ballroom, but after studying dance at BYU-Idaho, she now specializes in teaching hip hop, clogging and contemporary dance. LBG says that Panache’s new 1,600 square-foot studio features two dance floors and a parent observation area. It will offer group and individual lessons for most styles of dance, as well as coaching for competitive travel teams. The studio is located adjacent to The UPS Store across the parking lot from Village/International Fitness. Sydney will be joined by veteran teachers Meghan Brandow and Brie Gerondale.

Adorn Waxing & Skincare Studio (Adorn) has joined the tenants in The Village and is now open for business. With over a decade of experience operating a salon, owner, Trisha Mahoney, is branching off to open her own studio. Adorn offers a host of affordable services, including waxing for both men and women, facials, lashes, massage and a variety of retail products. The studio is located next to Simply Sharpe, just north of the Tinseltown box office.

Fudoshin Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the newest tenant to sign a lease at the Medford Center and opened July 3rd in the space next to Panache. Fudoshin will provide the highest quality of teaching for this form of martial art to students throughout greater Medford area. Owner, Adam Nadow, earned his black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and has had an "extensive list of accomplishments" in the local, national and world ranks during his decade of studying and competing, according to LBG. Adam is currently offering free self-defense classes for women and plans to offer free classes for children with Autism twice per month.
