Wildwood Antique Mall of Ocala, FL
Within a few months after the opening of the Titusville mall plans began on the 30,000 square foot store located at 2405 SW 27th Ave, Ocala, FL in the Shady Oaks shopping center located 1 3/4 miles north east of I-75 (Exit 350) in Ocala. The Wildwood Antique Mall of Ocala was filled to capacity with quality Antique dealers in less than three months and now houses over 130 dealers.
Manny Pesco initiated the decision to structure the Ocala Mall with the same structured management style as the previous Malls and directed his General Managers Henry and Lisa Olender, to design the layout of the Ocala store, setup the same computerized systems, hire and train the staff and manage the operations of the Florida based stores, to include the original Mall in Wildwood. This was done to assure efficiency and continuity from one Wildwood Antique Mall to another regardless of its location.
Dominick Stoddard has been appointed to the position of Store Manager of the Ocala store. He brings years of experience from his family’s Antique shop as well as PC technology and people skills.
Ocala is located among the beautiful rolling hills of Central Florida and is a hub to tourists of Silver Springs attractions, race horse farms, as well as home to celebrities that frequent many Ocala businesses. Many tourists crisscross Ocala while traveling north or south on I-75 and SR-301 just before the highways branch out to Florida coasts, or heading south to visit Disney World with the family.
Henry and Lisa Olender are heading to Melbourne Florida to start-up the next Wildwood Antique Mall and continue to be General Managers for all Florida based Wildwood Antique Malls.
