If you've driven by the Newport Pavilion over the last month or so, you've noticed some construction going on. Most notably near Pavilion Parkway, next to the Kroger Fuel Station and in between Target and Kroger. The new retailers are on schedule to open this Summer.
From the Biz Courier:
Four of the retailers – Michael’s, Petsmart, Ulta and Famous Footwear – will fill the 56,000-square-foot space between the Target and Kroger stores. At least three more tenants including Aspen Dental, Mattress Firm and AT&T, will move into a 15,000-square-foot building being constructed next to the Kroger Fuel Center.
Obviously the big names here are being constructed between the two anchor stores. Good news for Newport and Anchor Investment Partners, who purchased the property from Bank of America a little over a year ago.
A reader also pointed out that the Chic Fil A trailer is no longer on the property. I have a call into Anchor Associates to see if they are still in the works to bring Chic Fil A into the fold.
