ACE Cash Express will soon move from the northwest corner of Poplar Square shopping center in Medford.

Its new location next to Jo-Ann Fabrics is two doors south of the location ACE Cash Express occupied prior to the June 2007 fire that displaced several of the shopping center's occupants. With work to remodel the north end anchor location for Best Buy set to start in a few weeks, the check cashing firm will move "in a few days," said Tien Pham of Argonaut Investments, the Bay Area-based shopping center owner.

Pham said the shopping center has 6,000 square feet of space available, which will likely be filled when Best Buy opens later this year.
