Professional beauty supply store SalonCentric has opened a 3,500-square-foot location at Aldrich Plaza in Howell, expanding the national chain’s brick-and-mortar footprint and representing a new retail tenant category for the Monmouth County shopping center.

Levin Management Corporation (LMC) serves as exclusive leasing and managing agent for the 128,000-square-foot Aldrich Plaza, Route 9. LMC Leasing Representative Kendal Hand-Freda and Senior Leasing Representative E.J. Moawad arranged the long-term lease.

“We are excited to be open in our newest location in Howell,” said Gina Meggo, SalonCentric deputy president and chief customer experience officer. “SalonCentric offers licensed beauty professionals the very best products, innovations, education and business-building support and services. We believe in building a beauty community that works together to make the world beautiful – and we know customers will find our newest store to be accessible and easy to navigate, and managed by knowledgeable team members who provide unequaled support and guidance.”

“Aldrich Plaza’s ideal mix of stores, restaurants and service providers, paired with exceptional visibility, make it a very desirable place to do business,” said Hand-Freda. “SalonCentric has earned a large and loyal following with salon professionals. The new Howell store is larger than a typical SalonCentric location, making it one of the brand’s flagship shopping destinations. We are confident this tenant will see great success here.”
