Shoppers at Shiloh Crossing will have a new place to eat when a new strip mall opens on the Billings West End.

Downtown Billings eatery Soup and Such is adding a new location in the Shops at Shiloh Crossing when it opens this fall, owner Mike Craighill said last week. Soup and Such will move into a 2,000-square-foot space in October, he said.

Construction of the 42,304-square-foot Shops at Shiloh Crossing began this spring next to the new Scheels Sporting Goods store on Shiloh Road. The strip mall has five other tenants: Neecee’s women’s clothing store, Party America, weight-loss clinic BalancedDiet by Element, women’s fashion store Meridian Limited and home décor shop Country Cottage.

All five of these retailers market primarily to women, who make up the majority of Soup and Such’s clientele.

“A lot of energy out there. The shops that are getting built, the tenants that they’re putting in really fit into our customer base,” Craighill said.

Soup and Such sells a lunch buffet of soup, salad and breadsticks. The shop first opened in 2006 in the Heights, and Craighill and his wife, Antonia, opened the second location at 2716 Third Ave. N. two years later.

The Craighills then closed the original Heights location in 2012, and Antonia Craighill opened the bakery shop Velvet Cravings downtown.

Mike Craighill said he expects to hire eight to 12 new employees for the store, including a new manager.

“Shiloh was a great option for us,” he said.
