A number of new tenants moved into Godfrey’s Monticello Plaza in 2014, but a couple of long-time businesses are now moving out.  Action Tax has moved to another location on Godfrey Road, while Party Magic will be closing its doors soon, after nearly a quarter-century in business.

Godfrey Mayor Mike McCormick tells the Big Z that while it’s sad to see them go, recent improvements to the plaza under the new ownership have apparently lured another new business as well:

Clothing store Factory Connection is reportedly moving into the space once occupied by the Godfrey Book Store.  McCormick says renovations to surrounding lots and the renovation of the Dairy Queen have helped the plaza.  As for a new grocery store at the old Park n Shop location, McCormick says he understands it may be sometime in the summer before it will open.  As for details on branding, attempts to contact plaza ownership have been unsuccessful.
