Shops at Wiregrass sees more growth

The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel recently added several retail options, and more stores are slated to open this spring and next fall.

"Now that we are in our eighth year of doing business within this wonderful community, it is exciting to see the continued growth of shops and restaurants added to our beautiful shopping center," said Greg Lenners, general manager.

The newly opened 3D Musketeers Printing offers custom color three-dimensional printing and scanning. Design services and printer and filament sales are also available.

Shoe lovers can find collectible and limited-edition athletic shoes from around the globe at Soleciety Sneaker Boutique, which is next to Zales.

Lola Perfume features name-brand fragrances for women and men. The store is next to Hollister.

Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shop and VOM FASS are two stores opening soon. Rocket Fizz carries thousands of bottled soda pops and candies from all over America. There are also retro and gag gifts, as well as concert and movie posters.

VOM FASS offers a large selection of premium culinary oils, traditional balsamics, vinegar specialties and exclusive fruit balsamic vinegars.

Coming this fall, Visionworks and Irish 31 are expected to open.

With three locations in Tampa, Irish 31 offers the comforts of an Irish Pub with the refinement of a chef-driven menu.

The Shops at Wiregrass is at 28211 Paseo Drive and is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon-6 p.m.
