Ebisu Life Store offers toys, plushies, stationery, access to "gacha" toy vending machines, beauty supplies, mugs, snacks, drinks, and more. Its website says: "Founded October 2013 in Osaka, Japan, Ebisu is a unique life store that offers thousands of product categories from Japan."

The company has been opening stores around the U.S., mostly in shopping malls, since 2020. It opened a shop in Rockville, Montgomery County, in 2022.

Urban Outfitters spent about 10 years in the York Road building, before moving over to the new Circle East shopping center in 2021.

Downtown Towson has been attracting many new businesses in recent years, mostly eateries.
