Posted online

SS&B Heating & Cooling Inc.
After 17 years of working for SS&B Heating & Cooling Inc., Jeremy Grisham purchased the 2607 W. Bennett St. business Aug. 10 for an undisclosed price. “I started out as an installer – a low man on the totem pole – and worked my way up to crew leader and then to managing the install crews,” Grisham said, noting he later added inside and outside sales to his duties. Founded in 1969, the company provides installation, maintenance, repair and replacement of heating and air conditioning equipment. With 2,500 service contracts in place, much of the work is in new construction of residential and multifamily homes, including those built by Countryland Homes, Ramsey Building, Coryell Enterprises and Essick Builders. In the sale from Mike Childers, who owned SS&B Heating & Cooling since 1997, Grisham also acquired the 15,000-square-foot building and 20 vehicles. There are 20 employees.

Ross Stores Inc.
The final tenant of Springfield Plaza’s first phase opened Oct. 7. At 3800 W. Washita St., Ross Stores Inc. added its second Ross Dress for Less in Springfield. The 25,000-square-foot store sells department-store brand apparel and home decor at discounted prices, according to a statement from its investor and media-relations office. The California-based chain operates 1,400 stores in 37 states. The Springfield stores each employ about 45, company officials say. Lease terms and the investment to stock the new store were undisclosed. Springfield Plaza is a $78.5 million, 90-acre retail center – southwest of East Sunshine Street and West Bypass – developed by Grace One LLC and Rankin Development LLC. Other tenants are Burlington Stores, Petco Animal Supplies and Shoe Dept. Encore.

Salon 104
First-time small-business owner Amy Langston started Salon 104 on Sept. 12 at 4121 S. Fremont Ave., Ste. 104, in space formerly occupied by Valariea Wellness Center LLC. Langston has been a stylist for 18 years, mostly as an independent contractor. For the last six years, she worked part time in rented space at Hairy’s Salon on East Sunshine Street. Langston said all of her clients followed her in the move. She’s leasing 1,200 square feet in Copperstone Square for undisclosed terms, with her own money and with help from a silent partner. The office already had eight built-in rooms, she said, so the only remodeling needed was fresh flooring, paint and the installation of a shampoo bar. Salon 104 offers haircuts for women, men and children, as well as hair coloring, permanents and straightening, and facial waxing. A shampoo, cut and style starts at $35 for women and $20 for men. She is currently the only stylist in the shop but may open it up to renters after the first of the year.
Hours: 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and by appointment
