The Atrium Mini-Mall and A+ Self Storage plans open house and grand opening

MERIDIAN —     A unique new business in north Meridian that offers one-stop shopping from more than 60 diverse entrepreneurs under one roof, will hold its open house and grand opening Thursday, but it is already open to the public.

    Located across the street from Broadmoor Shopping Center at 5009 Highway 493 is a fun and functional new business concept called The Atrium Mini-Mall, where shoppers can choose from an ever-changing array of antiques, art, glassware, collectibles, crafts, jewelry, furniture, eclectic décor items and much more in a clean, convenient, comfortable environment.  The hours of operation are Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m.-5 p.m.

    Also on the premises is the adjoining A+ Self Storage section of the business that features individual storage units of various sizes for persons or businesses in need of secure and affordable space to store overflow household or business items, equipment, pharmaceutical supplies, vital records, etc. Storage units will rent for one dollar ($1.00) during a grand opening move-in special that will be offered during the month of April.

    Amenities include climate-controlled, interior, well-lit units accessible to tenants during daily business hours or by using a personal access code 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A loading dock is conveniently located and dollies are provided for use free during business hours. Boxes and moving supplies may be purchased in the office and insurance on stored goods is also available for a fee.

    The concept of The Atrium Mini-Mall and A+ Self Storage facility is the brainchild of owner, Wayne Wuestefeld, whose father, Karl, operated a furniture store in the same location from 1972-1982.

    “The response to this unique business concept in Meridian has already been overwhelming,” said Wuestefeld. “We’re nearly filled to capacity with vendors, and a number of eager bargain hunters are fast becoming regular customers as more and more booths are opening their doors with an exciting array of merchandise.”

    Among the current vendors are 25 antique dealers, 11 booths that will feature contemporary gifts and accessories, four artists, two jewelry dealers, two who will sell bird houses, one who is offering unique wrought iron products and a number of others who will carry an assortment of items.

    “Antique and flea-market enthusiasts, individuals seeking special art or vintage pieces to incorporate into their modern décor, and those who appreciate unique contemporary gifts and accessories will want to shop with us regularly,” advised Wuestefeld, “since vendors will be updating their stock frequently as one-of-a kind pieces are sold.”

    Wuestefeld said in addition to the benefits afforded shoppers through his venue, the operation also provides entrepreneurs with an affordable, low-risk environment in which to run a small business, thus eliminating extensive financial and other operational factors that would have otherwise prevented most of them from attaining their dream.

    “In these tough economic times it is more important than ever to support our hometown people and businesses,” said Wuestefeld. “So, we encourage everyone to come shop, meet our vendors, and help support this new economic development venture in Meridian during our open house and grand opening Thursday evening from 5 p.m.-8 p.m.”

    For more information about The Atrium Mini-Mall and A+ Self Storage, contact Wayne Wuestefeld at (601) 482-1414, visit the web site at, find them on facebook at or shop the mini-mall in person at 5009 Highway 493 across from Broadmoor Shopping Center and adjacent to The Landing Restaurant in North Meridian.
