St. Louis-based USA Mortgage opened its ninth branch on Sept. 1 at 1717 E. Republic Road, Ste. D. The 2,100-square-foot Springfield branch employs two loan officers and two support staff, said branch manager Steve Wagner, who co-owned Brown and Wagner Mortgage in Springfield until it was absorbed by Liberty Mortgage in 2009. Wagner declined to disclose lease terms. USA Mortgage, a subsidiary of DAS Acquisition Co. LLC, offers mortgage and conventional loans, Veterans Affairs loans, Federal Housing Administration loans and Housing and Urban Development 203(k) acquisition and rehabilitation loans. Wagner said the federal 203(k) program allows home purchases with as little as 3.5 percent down and finances certain repairs such as painting and room and deck additions.

On Sept. 15, Dawn Cosby purchased and relocated Springfield’s Social Suppers store to 2936 E. Sunshine St., Ste. A, in Southern Hills Shopping Center.
