Good and Perfect Gifts LLC
After 12 years operating in Eldon, Jera Lincoln moved Good and Perfect Gifts LLC to Springfield on Sept. 8 to 1145 E. Republic Road in the Twin Oaks Shopping Center. The store sells women’s jewelry, handbags, gifts, candles and home decor. Lincoln, who got into the retail business after selling an 18-agent real estate firm, said Good and Perfect Gifts previously catered to the seasonal crowds that flocked to Lake of the Ozarks. But she’s lived in Springfield the last five years and wanted to move closer to home and gain more traffic exposure. Lincoln also opreated a store in Jefferson City but closed it 18 months ago to focus on one location. Infill and occupancy costs were not disclosed on the three-year lease with Post Time Properties LLC for the 3,800 square feet in a double unit that once was part of Christian Publishers Outlet. The store has four employees.

PuroClean Certified Restoration
After operating in Republic the first two years in business, Chad and Christina Jameson moved PuroClean Certified Restoration on Sept. 4 to 3135 S. Scenic Ave. Jameson Certified Restoration LLC is a franchisee of PuroSystems LLC, handling water, fire, mold and biohazard cleanup for residential and commercial clients. Chad Jameson said most customers find the company in online searches, after a leak from a dishwater or smoke damage due to a cooking mishap. The five employees also can clean up crime scenes and sewage spills within a 30-mile radius around Springfield, he said. The 5,000-square-foot warehouse and office is under a three-year lease from Wilhoit Properties for undisclosed terms. The Scenic Avenue space is more than double PuroClean’s previous location, he said, making room for a fleet of three vehicles, as well as carpet cleaners, fans and other equipment. Previously, Jameson worked in real estate preservation for 10 years as Jameson Property Group LLC.
