Boutique, salon to open in Strawberry Square, completing 3rd Street shops

Sarinity Beauty Bar and, next door, AMMA JO, soon will open on N. 3rd Street.

Two new shops are due to arrive next week in downtown Harrisburg, as Strawberry Square fills up its 3rd Street retail spaces.

The first, AMMA JO, will have a grand opening on Dec. 15 at 7 N. 3rd St. The boutique will feature handbags, accessories, clothing, jewelry and other items for women, as well as a men’s section.

For several years, AMMA JO was located in retail space inside Strawberry Square, but that location has been closed for some time.

“We are returning to the downtown because we just loved our experience in Strawberry Square, and we feel that the energy is coming back to the downtown experience,” said owner Amma Johnson. “We want to be a part of that!”

Johnson will be neighbors with Sarinity Beauty Bar, which will open next door at 5 N. 3rd St. Sarinity will offer skincare, spa service and beauty treatments.

“I am ecstatic to provide affordable spa services to the downtown and surrounding areas,” said owner Arian Romaine.

With these new shops, Strawberry Square has leased all the retail spaces in its “Shops on 3rd at Strawberry Square,” said Brad Jones, president and CEO of Harristown Enterprises, which owns the mixed-used building.

“Shops on 3rd has really become a fantastic collection of unique fashion boutiques, restaurants and health and beauty services for this outstanding downtown corridor,” Jones said.

AMMA JO is located at 7 N. 3rd St., Harrisburg, and will have its ribbon-cutting on Wednesday, Dec. 15, at noon. For more information on AMMA JO, visit their website.

Sarinity Beauty Bar is located at 5 N. 3rd St., Harrisburg, and will have its ribbon-cutting on Friday, Dec. 17, at 10 a.m.
