Just as the Eastwood Mall has announced the closing of one of its stores, it announced the opening of a brand-new location for folks in the Valley to eat, drink, watch and play.

Arcade and restaurant chain Dave & Busters will soon be opening up its very first location in the Mahoning Valley in the space currently occupied by Dillard's, which will be closing in late July.

The property will be over 23,000 square feet and will be located near Firebird's Wood Fired Grill. There will be entrances located on both the interior and exterior of the mall.

In addition to arcade and virtual reality games, Dave & Busters offers sports fans the opportunity to watch their favorite teams on their numerous HD screens while they eat and drink from the menu of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and plenty of meals and appetizers to choose from.

This project is part of an ongoing investment and reinvestment in the reinvention of the Eastwood Mall Complex. 

“Our community deserves nothing but the best! We’re excited to welcome the nation’s preeminent entertainment destination, Dave & Buster’s, to the Valley’s one stop destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment: Eastwood Mall Complex," saidCafaro Co-President, Anthony Cafaro, Jr.

This will be the first Dave & Buster's in the Mahoning Valley with the closest currently being located in the Belden Village Mall in Canton.
