The retail options in downtown Huntington continue to expand with the addition of Merle Norman Cosmetics at 907 Fourth Avenue.
The location was most recently home to Fro Yo House, a frozen yogurt shop, and Tropical Moon Frozen Yogurt before that.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, the new Merle Norman franchise will return the historic building at the southeast corner of Ninth Street and Fourth Avenue to full capacity.
The 85-year-old company develops, manufactures, and distributes its own full line of skin care and cosmetic products. These products are sold exclusively through independently owned and operated Merle Norman Cosmetic Studios, according to MerleNorman.com.
No opening date for the Fourth Avenue store has been announced, but interior renovations are underway.
