Here’s what the national retailer is joining Hibbett Sports at Kline Plaza
A number of new tenants opened at Kline Village Mall in Harrisburg this year.
In May, a home care agency, Exceptional Hearts Home Care Agency, opened in the former office of Sweet Home Healthcare. Rapid Sandwiches & More, which serves salads, subs, quesadillas, wings and more, opened in April. The Crisp Sweepstakes Café also opened in April. The O’lee De Lux hair salon opened in March. Higher Level Community Outreach nonprofit opened on Sunday in a space upstairs at the mall.
And now the mall has signed two nationwide retailers on long-term leases that are expected to open in late 2021 or early next year.
One of them is retailer Rainbow, which sells women’s clothing including plus size clothing as well as children’s clothing, shoes and accessories.
Rainbow has more than 1,000 stores in the United States, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, including the Harrisburg Mall in Swatara Township and the Uptown Plaza Mall in Harrisburg. Rainbow closed a store at The Point Mall in Lower Paxton Township five years ago.
Rainbow will open a 7,300 square foot store at Kline Plaza in approximately 13,000 square feet of space next to clothing retailer Citi Trends, according to Kevin Nassimi, vice president of leasing at Nassimi Realty, owner of Kline Plaza.

The other national retailer coming to Kline Plaza is Hibbett Sports, which will take over the remaining 5,400 square feet of the space. The sports retailer is moving from its Colonial Park Mall space in Lower Paxton Township, according to Nassimi.
The two new leases of Hibbett Sports and Rainbow as well as Harrisburg Laundromat, which is slated to open later this year in the mall, will bring the ground floor occupancy rate at Kline Village to over 90%, according to Nassimi.
Kline Plaza, formerly known as Kline Village, is a 220,000 square foot shopping center located near Harrisburg High School at 101 S. 25th St. and is anchored by Giant, Citi Trends, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar . The mall has around 25 tenants. Dollar Tree opened at the mall last year. Nassimi Realty purchased the mall in December 2018.
