ProSource Springfield
Home improvement supply wholesaler ProSource Springfield opened Jan. 4 by husband-and-wife franchisees Pat and Chris Foglesong, of Kirksville. The business, which sells flooring and kitchen and bath supplies, fills roughly 9,800 square feet at the 2745 S. Kansas Expressway building previously occupied by Jump Mania LLC. It’s the first ProSource store in southwest Missouri and fourth in the state, according to its website. The Foglesongs, who also operate Carpet One Floor & Home in Springfield, declined to disclose startup costs and lease terms with building owner Kansas Plaza 1 LLC. ProSource Springfield Manager Linda Merkling said the store employs six and works with trade professionals, such as contractors, remodelers and interior designers working on home improvement projects. Merkling said ProSource and Carpet One are brands of CCA Global Partners Inc.

MaMa Jean’s Natural Foods Market LLC
The flagship store for MaMa Jean’s Natural Foods Market LLC is in larger space at 228 W. Sunshine St. after relocating Dec. 26. It moved to Sunshine Corners, just a few blocks from 1727 S. Campbell Ave., where MaMa Jean’s first opened in 2002. The Campbell Avenue store closed Dec. 12 to prepare for relocation to the 14,400-square-foot space in the shopping center across the street from Bass Pro Shops. Spokesperson Amber Wilkerson said the new store renovation and relocation costs were around $650,000. Co-owners Susie Harbin-Kawamoto and Diana Hicks are on a 14-year lease for an undisclosed rate with Maples Properties LLC, she said. The move follows the March 2020 closure of MJ’s Market and Deli, 900 E. Battlefield Road, Ste. 140. MJ’s moved into the new store to serve as its deli operation. Manager Lauryl Wagoner leads the 25-employee store. MaMa Jean’s operates two other Queen City stores, at 1110 E. Republic Road and 3530 E. Sunshine St.
